Handbook for Military Participation in the Interagency Management System for Reconstruction and Stabilization: Unified Action Handbook Series, Book One [open pdf - 756KB]
This Handbook for Military Participation in the Interagency Management System for Reconstruction and Stabilization provides fundamental guidance and information for joint force participation in the Interagency Management System (IMS) in support of United States Government (USG) reconstruction and stabilization operations. This handbook is intended to be used as a guide to help explain the roles and responsibilities of military participation within the IMS to better integrate all elements of national capacity in response to an overseas contingency or in support of military engagement, security cooperation, and deterrence activities. Its primary purpose is to better prepare military planners and implementers for interaction, coordination, and communication with IMS participants through the identification of key interagency relationships and standardization of basic processes. It also is designed as a companion document to the IMS Guide and the Practitioner's Guide of the USG Planning Framework for Reconstruction, Stabilization, and Conflict Transformation. Both of these documents will be produced by the Department of State Office of the Coordinator for Reconstruction and Stabilization (S/CRS)."
