Abstract : The Joint Force Air Component Commander (JFACC) concept is an issue that produces a great deal of controversy in the joint arena. The questions of authority, and doctrine need to be examined. Specific authority is delineated by the JFC, but vague doctrine, service parochialism and historical precedents confuse the issue. This paper will examine the JCS guidance, aviation perspectives and service views of the JFACC concept. The JFC designates a JFACC, if necessary; the JFACC's authority is defined by the JFC. The primary responsibility of the JFACC is to ensure a harmony of efforts to support the JFC's intent and concept of operations. The JFACC staff organization must be mission focused and flexible. Recommendations will be presented to help resolve the JFACC authority and doctrine controversies. (KAR) P. 1
