Reservist impact on Headquarters and Region's roles

As Reservists will be national assets, how will this impact Reservists and how will the roles of Headquarters and Regions change?


Reservists will continue to be deployable wherever and whenever necessary and appropriate for Stafford Act mission accomplishment. Headquarters will be responsible for program and policy management, deployment, force structure management, recruiting, appointments, and a variety of programmatic administrative functions. Regions will be responsible for identifying deployment requirements, payroll and travel for field deployments, and specified human capital actions. Headquarters and the Regions will share responsibility for FQS implementation. Each Region will assign an in-Region liaison to the Headquarters Incident Management Workforce Office to ensure unity of effort, consistency in program administration, and a comparatively “local” contact for Reservists residing within the Region.
