Interagency Staff

U.S. Africa Command recognizes it is part of a diverse U.S. government interagency team that reflects the talents, expertise, and capabilities within the entire U.S. government. As such, AFRICOM was the first regional command to integrate from its inception advisors and experts from other U.S. government agencies.

With over 30 representatives from more than 10 federal agencies, the non-Department of Defense representation at U.S. Africa Command is one of the broadest of any Combatant Command. Using a novel approach, AFRICOM's non-DoD representatives are placed throughout the command and embedded directly with DoD staff, where their subject matter expertise can best be used.
