Title Coordinating the United States Interagency Partnering Effort.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 40p
Personal Author M. D. Winegardner
Abstract International Partnering efforts have become the primary way for the United States to deal with an increasingly unstable and volatile global environment. Interest in partnering efforts by the Department of Defense, Department of State and the United States Agency for International Development have accelerated as a means of avoiding conflict and addressing post conflict resolution. Unfortunately, compartmentalization among the aforementioned agencies has led to redundancies of programs and processes with no method for consistently leveraging the partnering abilities of other agencies. While there are successes at interagency partnering, there is no unifying doctrine, documentation, or historical repository for partnering efforts, so institutionalizing interaction at the interagency and international level is difficult. Creating an Office of International Partnership will coordinate and create a common language of partnering while applying the best historically successful efforts to the current operating environment.
