The Total Army People Enterprise serves over 3.5 million people: nearly one million Active, Guard and Reserve Soldiers, 295,000 Army Civilians, over 1.3 million family members, nearly 900,000 retired Soldiers and over 100,000 surviving spouses.  To provide oversight and direction for the Total Army People Enterprise, a governance body will prioritize all Army People management efforts. The governance chair is the Assistant Secretary of the Army, Manpower and Reserve Affairs (ASA, M&RA) who, in close coordination with the CG TRADOC and AMC, DCS, G-1, DCS, G-3/5/7, and other critical governance members, will meet periodically to synchronize and prioritize Army People management and funding decisions for consideration by Army Senior Leaders.

This will ensure that the objectives of the Army People Strategy are understood at all levels, inform the development of weapons and training systems, and are appropriately integrated into the Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution (PPBE) process, including the Manning (MM), Training (TT), Equipping (EE), and Installation (II) Program Evaluation Groups (PEGs).
