What is the Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC), and what is its significance to Program and Acquisition Managers?
The Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC) charters and oversees the work in developing overarching joint operational and integrating concepts for the joint missions during the joint concept development component of the JCIDS process. The JROC reviews and approves all joint capabilities documents designated as JROC interest and supports the acquisition review process. The JROC validates capability needs and Key Performance Parameters (KPP) along with their associated threshold and objectives when it approves the associated capabilities document (Initial Capabilities Documents (ICD), Capability Production Documents (CPD), and Capability Production Documents (CPD)).
The JROC charters the Functional Capabilities Boards (FCB) to assist in carrying out its duties and responsibilities. The FCB reviews and, if appropriate, endorses all Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) and joint DOTMLPF Change Recommendation (DCR) documents prior to their submission to the JROC. The JCIDS process was created to support the statutory responsibility of the JROC to validate joint warfighting requirements.
The JROC Title 10 responsibilities are identified below and in CJCSI 3170.0H Reference A. The JROC processes are delineated in Reference G.
