1. Purpose.
a. This instruction republishes the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) instruction covering the Requirements Management and Governance Structure (RMGS) for the Global Combat Support System (GCSS) Family of Systems (FOS) (hereinafter referred to simply as the GCSS FOS) and the Global Combat Support System-Joint (GCSS-J) mission application (formerly known as GCSS combatant commander/joint task force or GCSS-CC/JTF).

b. The GCSS FOS RMGS consists of a General/Flag Officer Steering Group(GOSG), a Planners’ Board (PB), and standing and situational-dependent working groups (WGs) to: review functional requirements for systems integration; foster net-centric and services-centric interoperability; provide for security and information assurance across the GCSS FOS; synchronize
capability fielding schedules; propose and, if applicable, approve the policies and procedures that help the Department of Defense (DOD) meet joint combat support and combat service support (CS/CSS) joint logistics information as well as visibility requirements supporting the joint force commanders (JFCs).

c. This RMGS addresses issues that cut across the GCSS FOS and facilitates the delivery of the required joint logistics operational capability in a timely manner. It brings together the Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS) (reference a), and the acquisition and planning, programming, budgeting, and execution system (PPBES) communities in a partnership to identify and resolve cross-cutting GCSS FOS issues. It assigns supporting responsibilities for the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), Joint Staff, Services, Defense agencies, combatant commands, and other activities. DOD acquisition oversight of the GCSS FOS is governed under the DOD 5000 series issuances and an OSD(NII) sponsored overarching integrated product teams (OIPTs), when assigned for GCSS family member systems.
