Defense Governance and Management Team (DGMT)


The Defense Governance and Management Team (DGMT) was formed in 2015 as a combination of the Defense Institution Reform Initiative (DIRI) and the Defense Institution Building Management Team (DMT) to more effectively manage and implement Institutional Capacity Building activities around the globe.  DGMT operates under the sponsorship of the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) and the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD Policy).

Institutional Capacity Building (ICB) comprises low cost, small footprint, high value DoD programs building effective, transparent, and accountable partner defense institutions.  ICB aims to sustain operational/tactical gains of US security cooperation investments; enable partners to manage their own security; contribute to broader security sector reform; strengthen whole-of-government relationships; promote effective regional collaboration; and instill a "pay it forward" ethic.
