The Defense Science Board Task Force on Organizational Structures for Stabilization Operations will meet in open session September 2, 2005, from 1300-1700 at the Pentagon, Room 3E947, Washington, DC. The task force will address organizational structures necessary to support or conduct stability operations. At this meeting, the Defense Science Board Task Force will focus on: (1) What organizational change is needed within OSD Policy, the Joint Staff and the rest of DoD to manage implementation—that is, to ensure that the designated capabilities are created and the interagency and joint vision are followed at various DoD levels; (2) What organizational change is needed within DoD to improve our ability to conduct or support stability operations—including employing and integrating DoD capabilities with those of other Departments and Agencies, NGOs, international organizations and the private sector; (3) What should be the timing and sequence of organization change within DoD; (4) What additional staffing is required for any new or Start Printed Page 51027reshaped stability operations entities in DoD; and (5) Who the right people are to staff key positions.
