AOIC Course Intro
AOIC Course Purpose
The one-week Action Officer Integration Course (AOIC) prepares military and civilian personnel to serve as action officers at the Headquarters, Department of the Army (HQDA) level. The course familiarizes students with the organization and functions of HQDA, Title 10 United States Code statutory responsibilities, Army processes, and staff products. AOIC challenges students to demonstrate the effective writing and communication skills required at HQDA.
AOIC Course Scope
AOIC provides HQDA action officers with a fundamental understanding of the organization of the Headquarters, Department of the Army (HQDA) and the roles, missions, and functions of the Secretariat and the Army Staff. The course builds upon that understanding with an overview of several key HQDA level processes: Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution (PPBE), Joint Capabilities Integration and Development System (JCIDS), Defense Acquisition System (DAS), and Force Management. AOIC addresses how action officers effectively develop, staff, and communicate information to decision makers and incorporates hands-on practical exercises to provide students with the opportunity to practice and improve their communication skills.
