Legacy Personnel Policy Issues Not included in the new CG-R construct is the management of reserve personnel policy issues, which will remain in the Assistant Commandant for Human Resources (CG-1) organization. A small staff will be located in the Office of Military Personnel (CG-133) in order to integrate reserve and military personnel policies into the M1000 suite of policies (e.g. Military Separations Manual, Military Assignments and Authorized Absences Manual, etc). Initial Focus There is no shortage of work to be undertaken by CG-R! As the new organization comes up to speed and takes shape there are four major focus areas: contingency response requirement management; Port Security Unit (PSU) modernization; Reserve Doctrine; and activation, mobilization and deployment policy. Contingency Response Requirement Management The Director of Reserve in 2018, Rear Adm. Scott McKinley, outlined three strategic priorities for the Reserve: Get the Organization Right, Get the Force Right, and Build Leadership For the Reserve. Strengthening the Headquarters governance structure makes good on the first of these priorities and lays the groundwork for delivering on the other two. When it comes to getting the force right, there are already a number of successes to guide us. One example is the Boat Forces Management Plan released by the Office of Boat Forces in 2013. The BFRMP was designed to meet specific mobilization needs for an assumed set of circumstances given the training limitations of the active duty workforce currently in place. As CG-R matures, there will be additional work to better articulate the full scope of requirements across operational and support programs.
