Program Management and Integration Directorate (PMID)
The Program Management and Integration Directorate is the Maneuver Support Center of Excellence’s centralized manager responsible for the integration and synchronization of MANSCEN doctrine, organization, training, material, leadership and education, personnel and facilities (DOTMLPF) capability developments among several entities. These are Capabilities Development Integration Directorate (CDID), MANSCEN Directorate of Training (MDoT), Schools and Garrison Staff in order to deliver maneuver support capability to the Army.
Inherent to this is to sustain a continuous DOTMLPF capability gap analysis and solution process based on priorities of the center, school commandants and realities of war and other deployed operations. The Directorate is divided into the TRADOC Capability Manager-Maneuver Support (TCM-MS) and the MANSCEN Knowledge Management (KM) Office. TCM-MS executes the PMID mission as the DOTMLPF program manager and integrates all developmental programs associated with functional and multi-functional capabilities to assure the mobility, freedom of action, and protection of Army units in full spectrum operations. The Knowledge Management Office provides state-of-the-art access to knowledge building and sharing opportunities for the MANSCEN workforce and customers. They foster daily collaboration among stakeholders combined with leveraged technology to facilitate a learning focused culture.
