(2) The objective of FORMDEPS is to provide a consolidated set of
documents that provide mobilization and deployment planning guidance and
instructions to other MACOMs, CONUSAs, and installations and to
appropriate Reserve Component headquarters.
b. Scope of FORMDEPS.
(1) FORMDEPS describes mobilization and deployment relationships of
FORSCOM with unified/specified commands, DA, NGB, MACOMs and
subordinate elements. It consolidates procedures, requirements and defines
responsibilities for accomplishment of mobilization and deployment planning
(2) FORMDEPS describes the system which FORSCOM uses to support
mobilization and deployment to include interface with other non-FORSCOM
(3) FORMDEPS currently consists of four volumes that are briefly described
Volume I - System Description. This volume is a general overview of
mobilization and deployment information available from other sources. It
describes the FORSCOM concept of operations for planning and execution of
FORSCOM go-to-war missions. It also assigns responsibilities and prescribes
command and control structure for the missions.
Volume II - Mobilization Troop Basis Stationing Plan (MTBSP). This volume
supports other FORMDEPS volumes and provides mobilization and
deployment data to plan time-phased unit progression through the five phases
of mobilization. Products of MTBSP provide the basis for implementing the
Deployment/Employment/ Mobilization Status System (DEMSTAT). The
MTBSPs are in World Wide Military Command and Control System
(WWMCCS) files and are available to WWMCSS entry system (WES) users
for the following scenarios:
The Pacific (Global and Korea only).
Volume III - Mobilization and Deployment Planning Guidance. This volume
consists of seven parts as described below.
Part 1 - FORSCOM Mobilization Plan. This document provides guidance
to installations, State-operated mobilization stations, State Adjutant
Generals/ State area commands (TAG/STARC), Major United States
Army Reserve Commands (RSC), and training divisions. The guidance is
on mobilizing Reserve Component (RC) elements and key items include: a
