|Publication Date:||26 May 2009|
The purpose of this instruction is to establish policy and guidance on the roles, organization, process, interrelationships, management and operation of the FCB. The FCBs support the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (hereafter referred to as "Chairman" or "CJCS") and the Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC) in identifying, assessing, and prioritizing (if required) joint military capability needs as specified in title 10, United States Code (USC), sections 153, 154, 163, and 181 (reference a).
This instruction applies to those organizations that support and participate in the FCBs, such as the Joint Staff, Services, combatant commands, combat support agencies (CSAs) and other Defense agencies, as appropriate, as well as joint and combined activities.
