The Planning Integration Branch of the Plans Analysis and Integration Office serves as the coordinator for garrison base operation programs and advisor to the director of PAIO on the development of the Installation Strategic Plan. The Planning Branch gives oversight on garrison development and execution of action plans in support of the IMCOM Strategic Plan. A key responsibility of this branch is identifying installation and organizational capabilities for analysis in order to enhance them as a means for supporting continuing Army transformation. Another component of the Planning Branch is Base Realignment and Closure, which analyzes emerging stationing/re-stationing implications as necessary.
Embracing the management principles embedded in the Army Performance Improvement Criteria that define the Army communities of excellence, the Planning Branch develops and orchestrates the implementation of the garrison strategic plan, which sets the overarching focal point for the installation’s strategic future.
Serving as the installation’s operation arm of the garrison commander, PAIO ensures the successful and timely delivery of various installation initiatives (i.e. development of working groups such as the Customer Relationship Working Group and handling all aspects of the semi-annual senior leadership conferences).
The Planning Branch integrates and frames for consideration the concerns and priorities of garrison and installation stakeholders.
