As a result, this document may be updated more frequently than directed in existing regulations and policies. These instructions are provided to the training and education proponents to facilitate these updates.
For changes in functional areas mandated by a change of assigned mission, and/or generated by changes in DOTMLPF-P, or other mandates from HQ DA or TRADOC HQ, the proponent should formally notify CAC through TRADOC G-3/5/7 via memorandum regarding changes to proponent areas.
For changes in functional areas generated internally by change in internal organization, changes in mission or proponency from one activity to another, the responsible proponent should formally notify CAC through TRADOC G-3/5/7 via memorandum within 30 days following a change of responsibility.
