CIPS/IPMO UPDATE No. 2007-1                                       29 DECEMBER 2006

          3)  Is developing comprehensive policy for a new DCIPS.  The Intelligence Personnel Management Office (IPMO) of the Office, Deputy Chief of Staff, G-2 represents Army on the DIHRB’s DCIPS working group.  This group is developing the new DOD human capital management system that will be like NSPS.

       4)  Has finalized a basic DOD Directive that unites the many intelligence agencies and service components and lays the foundation for the new DCIPS.

       5)  Has also established a Defense Intelligence Training and Education Board (DITEB) that will oversee the revision of DOD Directives on intelligence training, seek additional resources for training and oversee each DOD school house that is providing intelligence training.

  6)  Has let a contract that will map the competencies being developed by the DNI to

courses being offered to ensure adequate training is available.

   C.  IC Joint Duty Assignment (JDA) Program Soon to Launch.  The JDA was mandated by the 2004 Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act.   Congress wanted the program to do for civilians in the IC what the “Goldwater-Nichols” Act did for the military by increasing joint experience.  The goal of JDA is to increase joint IC perspective and expertise.  Joint duty is to be an essential part of becoming (and being) a senior civilian leader in the IC.  Joint duty will ensure that future intelligence professionals, and those who lead them, understand the scope and complexity of the IC “enterprise” and are able to effectively integrate and engage its vast resources in support of our national security mission.  JDA is not a program for everyone.  It is a Leadership Development Program for those to Senior Leader positions above GG-15.  

        1)  The program will start in 2007.  It will consist, for Army employees, of both a one-to three-year assignment at the GG-13 level or above outside of Army Intelligence and the completion of required courses contained in a Joint Leadership Development Curriculum (JLDC).   

        2)  There will be two types of joint duty assignments; Basic Joint Duty and Advanced Joint Duty.   Basic Joint Duty assignments are generally any assignment at the GG-13 or equivalent level in another intelligence component, such as, CIA, the National Security Agency, an Air Force intelligence unit, or the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s intelligence unit.  Advanced Joint Duty assignments are assignments either in joint DNI organizations or assignments where an incumbent is managing programs or policies for two or more IC components.  

        3)  The JDA program does not guarantee promotion, but the DNI will monitor promotion rates for 13s, 14s and 15s that have completed JDA requirements and those that have not. JDA program’s statistics/accomplishments will also be given scrutiny by senior Army leadership.  Joint duty certification will be required for promotion above GG-15.
