The Components, Combatant Commanders, Joint Staff, and OSD Principal Staff Assistants may also nominate issues. These CAPE-led Issue Teams that include senior (but not flag or SES rank) personnel from the various organizations gather facts relevant to individual issues, evaluate the basis of the issue and attempt to resolve the issue by mutual agreement of team members.DIssues not resolved at this level are forwarded to either a three-star general officer group ledby the DCAPE; to the DEPSECDEF-led Management Action Group (DMAG); or to the SECDEF’sSenior Leader Review Group (SLRG) for consideration. Most issues not resolved by the initial DCAPE-led Issue Teams are reviewed by the three-star general officer group to ensure that all pertinent facts are available when the issue is evaluated by the DMAG. The Program Review considers issues pertaining to DPG compliance, the overall balance of Component programs, and programmatic issues deferred during DPG preparation, as well as significant late-breaking issues.All other issues are handled in the Budget Review, which is discussed as part of the Budgeting phase of PPBE.DProgram Review
Issue TeamsIssue Teams, typically including senior level representatives from affected OSDand Component staff offices as well as the Joint Staff, are constituted to examine the proposed programs in light of the specific issues identified for consideration during the Program Review. An example of such an issue might be compliance with readiness levels called for in the DPG. The Issue Teams also consider program alternatives and recommend the program changes they consider necessary. The Issue Papers that result from this review present one or more alternatives to the Component program submission position on a particular issue, and analyze the implications of each alternative, particularly with respect to cost and personnel. Any major stakeholder who disagrees with an Issue Paper recommendation usually has an opportunity to articulate why they disagree and to propose a new alternative or support an existing alternative.
