  • G-8 Mission

    May 29, 2009

    The Army G-8 is the Army's lead for matching available resources to the defense strategy and the Army plan. We accomplish this through participation in OSD-led defense reviews and assessments, the programming of resources, materiel integration, analytical and modeling capabilities, and the management of the Department of the Army studies and analyses. The G-8 team is made up of one field operating agency-the Center for Army Analysis (CAA), three directorates-the Army Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) Office, Program Analysis & Evaluation (PAED), and Force Development (FD),-and the Army Study Program Management Office (ASPMO).
