Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI): State-DoD Partnership

Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) training and equipping activities are implemented through a close partnership between the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). The U.S. Department of State Bureau of Political-Military Affairs manages the Peacekeeping Operations (PKO) account through which GPOI is funded. Accordingly, the Bureau is responsible for the program oversight and financial management of GPOI-funded activities.

GPOI works in close coordination with the Department of State regional bureaus, as well as the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, Regional Combatant Commands, and other DoD organizations to develop regional program plans and execute training and equipping activities. DoD organizations implement nearly half of all GPOI programs, events, and activities.
