The four-week How the Army Runs (HTAR) is designed to educate and train military and civilian Force Managers on how the Army runs in the current Operating Environment (OE). HTAR teaches the roles, missions, and functions of the seven interdependent and continuous processes within the Army Force Management Model (e.g., strategy, joint capabilities integration and development system, defense acquisition system, structure, authorizations, personnel, and equipment), the nine Force Integration Functional Areas (e.g., structuring, manning, equipping, training, sustaining, funding, deploying, stationing, and readiness), and the requirements and acquisition processes that work together to produce trained and ready forces for the Combatant Commanders.
For additional information see the AFMS HTARC Brochure

4. Direct any questions to AFMS Registrar at (703) 805-4904.
a. Space available, in that there are seats available not otherwise reserved by students using the existing pre-requisites. Army Commands (ACOM) may nominate senior NCOs within their current HTAR allocations.
b. The senior NCOs unit/organization will provide funding for TDY (travel, lodging, and per diem).
c. The senior NCO is performing force management duties or where understanding the policies, processes, players, and products of how the Army runs is required in the conduct of his/her duties. A memorandum signed by the first O6 in the NCO's chain of command will satisfy this requirement and must accompany the ACOMs nomination for the student to attend. Use the following format for the memorandum:
1) Address memorandum to: COMMANDANT, ARMY FORCE MANAGEMNT SCHOOL (AFMS), ATTN: Colonel George Lewis, 5500 21st STREET, SUITE 1400, FORT BELVOIR VA 22060-5923.
2) Paragraph 1: provide the individuals name, grade, duty position, UIC, and describe the force management duties being performed.
3) Paragraph 2: state the TDA/MTOE position number and title that the individual is currently filling within the requesting organization. If no TDA/MTOE position, describe why understanding the policies, processes, players, and products of how the Army runs is important to the requesting unit.
4) Paragraph 3: state the reason why the individual requires the training and if not trained what effect will it have on mission completion.
5) Paragraph 4: include a statement that the requesting organization understands and is responsible for the initiation and closing of all required DTS vouchers and orders, and that the requesting organization is responsible for all associated Temporary Duty expenses to and from AFMS.
d. Units may opt to scan and EMAIL the memorandum.
e. Please note that simply reserving a seat in the Army Training Resource and Requirements System (ATRRS) does not equate to registration. Specifically, the ACOM training manager must nominate the prospective student to the AFMS Registrar (Interim) for enrollment and an approved registration.
