The CPPC is a biannual intra-Army departmental committee established to provide a systematic process to identify and resolve issues, determine priorities, and make decisions to support the CPP.
Chaired by the DASA (CP), the members of the CPPC serve as the senior advisory group to recommend changes and improvements to career program policy and procedures. The CPPC forwards policy recommendations through DASA (CP) for the ASA (M&RA) concurrence and coordination with the appropriate Army Staff. All CPPC recommendations will consider policy implications, impact if not adopted, general resource requirements, and general priority in relationship to other Army initiatives. The CPPC ensures the CPP can sustain the requisite readiness of the Army Civilian Corps.
