Building Civilian Interagency Capacity for Missions Abroad: Key Proposals and Issues for Congress
Nina M. Serafino (au); Catherine Dale (au); Pat Towell (au)
Prominent foreign policy organizations and foreign policy experts have perceived serious deficiencies in the authorities, organizations, and personnel used to conduct interagency missions that prevent the U.S. from exercising its power to full advantage. For the 112th Congress, proposals to address these problems may be of interest for their perceived potential not only to enhance performance, but also to save money by streamlining processes, encouraging interagency cooperation, and reducing duplication. This report draws on over three dozen studies with recommendations to improve the current national security system. These studies include three prepared by the Project on National Security Reform, with comprehensive recommendations, four prepared or co-sponsored by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and two by RAND in conjunction with the Am. Academy of Diplomats, as well as reports by the Council on Foreign Relations, the Defense Science Board, the Nat. Defense University, and others. This report draws from these studies, as well as a few articles, for recommendations to improve strategy-making, planning, and budgeting; to improve institutional authorities, structures and arrangements; and, to create interagency personnel policies and mechanisms. As the breadth and variety of the recommendations indicate, there is no consensus on how to fix the perceived problems. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
