FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. — The Fort Leonard Wood Plans, Analysis and Integration Office provides strategic planning and management support in achieving garrison priorities and performance improvements in order to optimize garrison resources; provide decision support; and realize efficiencies across the installation.

According to PAIO Project Engineer Brock Lercher, one of the key focus areas PAIO has is to oversee and direct installation strategic and sustainability planning in partnership with stakeholders on and off post.

“Collaborative goal setting, action-plan reviews and regional partnerships make this effort critical to Fort Leonard Wood’s long-term mission success and critical to maintaining this post as an installation of choice for service members, their families and civilians,” he said.

The office also leads efforts related to Army stationing and installation planning, or ASIP, activities, including mission and cost/benefit analysis, coordination and staffing related to outside missions that potentially align with Fort Leonard Wood, and provide cost benefit to the Army or other services.

“Another way PAIO contributes to the overall mission is by capturing and managing the voice of the customer in order to increase both quality and value to all stakeholders across all installation programs and services,” Lercher said. “We support all garrison teammates in maintaining a community and workforce of excellence.”

Lercher said PAIO also drives organizational performance excellence through metrics development and tracking — data development, collection and analysis for things such as the Installation Status Report drive improved understanding of Fort Leonard Wood programs, achievements and gaps, locally and among U.S. Army Installation Management Command and Army leaders.

Other Fort Leonard Wood services and resources can be found at https://home.army.mil/wood, on official social media pages — such as the Fort Leonard Wood Facebook page at www.facebook.com/fortleonardwoodmissouri — or in the Digital Garrison application, available for free in Google Play or Apple App Store.

The app also provides critical real-time updates regarding weather hazards and road conditions, community events or changes in hours of operation across the installation.
