JOINT INDIVIDUAL AUGMENTATION PROCEDURES
|Publication Date:||17 November 2014|
a. This instruction provides guidance and establishes procedures for requesting the allocation of Joint Individual Augmentation (JIA) personnel to meet unfunded, temporary manpower requirements of a Combatant Command (CCMD) or other U.S. Government entity while participating in President of the United States or Secretary of Defense (SecDef) directed or approved operations. JIA requirements are documented in a Joint Manning Document (JMD), which also contains Coalition, contractor, general/flag officer (GO/FO), other government agency (OGA), and unit requirements for Joint Task Force (JTF) Headquarters (HQ) and other unique HQ organizations. This instruction is intended for use in conjunction with the definitions and doctrinal guidance found in references a through d. The authority of this guidance is based in reference e. References f through i provide guidance on specific sourcing categories such as the Civilian Expeditionary Workforce, GO/FOs, and the Reserve Component (RC). References m through n direct the Global Force Management (GFM) allocation and policies procedures, under which JIA falls. The goals of the GFM process as it applies to JIA are to:
(1) Ensure JIA positions are consistent with strategic policy. Combatant Commanders (CCDRs) ensure JIA positions and JMDs are prioritized to support the approved/directed operations within the CCMD's area of responsibility (AOR) or functional mission area.
(2) Provide a qualified, available Service member or Department of Defense (DoD) civilian to the supported CCMD in a timely manner.
(3) Ensure the accountability of personnel filling JIA positions by entering standard name line information utilizing the electronic Joint Manpower and Personnel System (eJMAPS).
b. Operations may require JIA positions to temporarily support permanent organizations, JTF HQ, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Crisis Establishments (CEs), and United Nations (UN) or multinational force (MNF) mission requirements. To accomplish these goals, the supported CCMDs must anticipate potential JIA positions and provide an approved JMD in a timely manner to their Service Components for input, and to the Joint Staff (JS) for review and sourcing approval. The JS J-1 will forward validated requirements to JS J-35S, the Joint Force Coordinator (JFC), to coordinate for Service sourcing. The positions must be filled promptly to ensure personnel arrive at their temporary duty location on time, as requested by the supported CCMD. Staffing delays or Service unique procedures must not keep a supported CCMD's operational positions from being filled.
