CCMR and the Prevention, Relief, and Recovery (PR&R) team are busy reviewing a 2-week in-residence course offering entitled "Defense Governance," (P170024), which supports new requirements in NDAA Section 333.


According to the the FY2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), "S. 2943 would require... defense institution building to be [an] element of all foreign capacity building conducted pursuant to its proposed new Section 333" (CRS report on Security Cooperation: Comparison of Proposed Provisions for the FY2017 NDAA).  Defense insitution building is a key component of the "Defense Governance" course, which examines the fundamentals of governance within the defense sector in order to strengthen participants’ performance in their particular position as well as equip them to support capacity-building efforts within their system.


"Defense Governance" is currently scheduled for 5-16 February 2018.  For more information, please send a message to
