Summary
"To perform its variety of missions around the world, the Department of Defense (DOD) operates six geographic commands, which manage all military operations in designated areas of responsibility: U.S. Africa Command, U.S. Central Command, U.S. European Command, U.S. Northern Command, U.S. Pacific Command, and U.S. Southern Command. GAO was asked to review missions and structures of the combatant commands. This report describes (1) DOD's current allocation of personnel to the geographic commands and their subordinate commands (service component commands, subordinate unified commands, and joint task forces), excluding U.S. Central Command; and (2) how the geographic combatant commands utilize their subordinate commands to accomplish assigned missions. For this review, GAO obtained and analyzed documentation on authorized permanent and temporary military and civilian personnel and assigned missions at five geographic combatant commands (U.S. Africa Command, U.S. European Command, U.S. Northern Command, U.S. Pacific Command, and U.S. Southern Command) and their service component commands, subordinate unified commands, and joint task forces. Additionally, GAO included the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), because, according to U.S. Northern Command officials, each command has personnel that support both commands. GAO excluded U.S. Central Command and its corresponding subordinate commands due to its responsibilities to support ongoing military operations in the Middle East. GAO also interviewed knowledgeable officials regarding the authorized personnel at each command and how they meet their assigned missions"--Publisher's web site
