2. Functional Capabilities Boards. Each FCB implemented by the JROC is responsible for all aspects, materiel and nonmateriel, of its assigned functional area(s). Each FCB will work as the lead coordinating body to ensure that the joint force is best served throughout the JCIDS and acquisition process. Each FCB will:
a. Coordinate, integrate and deconflict the efforts of all DOD Components within its assigned functional area(s). Each FCB will ensure that new capabilities are conceived and developed in an integrated joint warfighting context.
b. Ensure that DOTMLPF aspects of new capabilities are being appropriately considered in the JGJDS documents. This includes overarching DOTMLPF changes necessary to meld a FoS or SoS with multiple CDD and CPD into an effective capability.
c. Evaluate and forward complete JCJDS documents designated as JROC Interest to the JROC for validation and/or approval.
d. Validate Joint Impact JCIDS documents and retire unnecessary JCJDS documents that fall within its functional area(s).
e. At least annually, review and endorse a prioritized list of DOTMLPF warfighting capability gaps within its assigned functional area(s), as recommended by the JWCA team.
f. Ensure that D, PA&E, USD(AT&L) and ASD(NIJ) have the opportunity to participate in or review the analysis conducted in support of ICD designated as JROC Interest. D, PA&E, USD(AT&L), and ASD(NJI) should be engaged early to ensure that the analysis plan adequately addresses a sufficient range of materiel approaches.
g. When documents potentially impacting national intelligence
capabilities come to the FCB for validation/approval, the FCB Chair will
invite the MRB staff to send a representative to attend/co-chair the FCB
h. Ensure that JFC are developed and updated as required to accurately implement overarching policies specified in documents such as the National Security Strategy, the Transformational Planning Guidance, the Quadrennial Defense Review, Joint Vision and future joint concepts, the National Military Strategy and the Defense Planning Guidance.
i. Request, as necessary, DOD Components to support FCB activities in support of this instruction. Tasking issues that cannot be resolved between the FCB(s) and the Component(s) will be forwarded to the JROC (through the JCB) for resolution. When support from organizations reporting to the Secretary of Defense is required, the FCB Chairman will seek this support from the responsible office within the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD).
j. Ensure that overarching joint DOTMLPF change
recommendations are addressed through the process prescribed in reference g .
k. At least annually, review (supported by appropriate JWCA teams) the functional area portfolio of JROC Interest and Joint Impact materiel proposals and DOTMLPF change recommendations for completeness and prioritization.
l. Ensure that the integrated architecture(s) (when available) is updated as required and provides assumptions, attributes and metrics for the functional area across the range of military operations and through time.
m. Solutions assessed to require intelligence support must include a determination of whether existing intelligence resources exist to meet the new requirement. If additional resources (billets, training, collection requirements, software support, etc.) are required, the FCB shall develop and maintain a list of intelligence requirements to achieve stated operational capabilities.
