COMMANDANT’S EXECUTIVE DECISION MAKING (EDM) PROCESS
|Publication Date:||10 August 2021|
The EDM Process encompasses deliberation and decision support for meetings chaired by the Commandant (CCG), Vice Commandant (VCG), and other senior leaders. It includes the Leadership Council (LC), Senior Leader Synch (SLS), Principals Council (PC), Deputy Principals Council (DC), and Executive Management Councils (EMCs). The acquisition decision making process (e.g., Acquisition Review Board, and Executive Oversight Committee) is outlined in the Major Systems Acquisition Manual, COMDTINST M5000.10 (series), and is outside the scope of this Instruction. The Planning, Programming, Budgeting and Execution (PPBE) is a parallel process to EDM with several intersection points described both by this and Coast Guard Planning, Programming, Budgeting and Execution (PPBE) Process, COMDTINST 7100.1 (series).
