Resources managed by JPEO-CBRND include:

The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND), formerly JPEO-CBD, is the US Department of Defense (DoD) point for research, development, acquisition, fielding and life-cycle support of biological, chemical and nuclear defense equipment and medical countermeasures to the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Special Operations Command.

JPEO-CBRND awarded funding to support a Phase 3 clinical trial that will evaluate the safety and efficacy of fostamatinib in hospitalized COVID-19 patients without respiratory failure that have certain high-risk prognostic factors.

Taking into consideration the multiple perspectives of the CBDP offices, the committee found that it needed both common definitions and a common framework in order to determine the core S&T capabilities that are required for the CBDP.

1 The committee heard from several former TMT performers; one possible conclusion is that TMT became a “Big Science” project that outgrew the CBD organizational structure and management culture that was geared toward managing small, independent projects within distinct divisions (e.g., Diagnostics, Medical Countermeasures, etc.). It appears likely that this small-science managerial culture still predominates throughout the Department of Defense (DoD), which has potential implications for the newly growing programs, particularly since their success requires effective managerial coordination across both the JSTO-CBD and the JPEO-CBD.

Using these definitions, the committee began to think about a framework for the development and discussion of Core S&T Capabilities for the CBDP. Taking advantage of the Joint Requirement Office’s Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Defense Operational Elements 3 (Shape, Sense, Shield, Sustain) and the CBDP Strategic Framework Constructs from the office of the DASD(CBD) 4 (Prevent, Protect, Mitigate, Respond, Recover), the committee mapped these elements to the four overarching missions as described in Figure 2.3.

Chapter: 2 Framework and Structure

FIGURE 2.1 Organizational chart of the CBDP enterprise. Solid lines indicate formal line of authority; dotted lines indicate necessary coordination, but no formal lines of authority. The principal program players in the CBDP are highlighted with red borders. The dotted line or no line connectivity among them is factual. No hard-line relationships exist among these offices and the committee observed that indeed each appears to act on its own, with separate organizing constructs as portrayed in the framework comparison of Figure 2.2. There is, in fact, no program-wide chemical and biological defense strategy, or common characterization of the program elements.

The second Gulf War in the early 2000’s led to the difficult realization that not much had changed in the CBDP in the preceding decade. Subsequently, a memo from the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics, issued in 2003, created the current program

The committee believes in the wisdom of a defense-in-depth strategy, which balances investments end to end, from pre- to post-event elements. Moreover, sustained investments over appropriate periods of time are required. This approach does not translate to guaranteed funding to performers—they should still be accountable for progress—but it does mean that program decisions come with leadership commitment of continued support as milestones are met on the path to fielded new or improved capabilities.

The combination of a broadly stated mission and numerous uncertainties calls for top-level guidance on focus and priorities, which the current program lacks.
