The United States Army Chaplain Corps builds Army spiritual readiness to deploy, fight, and win our Nation’s wars, by providing reliable and relevant world-class religious support, as a unique element of the Army that is fully engaged across the full spectrum of conflict. Chaplain Corps strategic communications support the Chaplain Corps’ work to care for the soul of the Army, by ensuring the constitutionally-mandated free exercise of religion, by delivering spiritual and religious care directly to Soldiers, their Families, and Army Civilians, and by providing moral leadership.
The objectives of this contract are for the Contractor to provide Strategic Communication and Analytical Services for the Army Chaplain Corps in support of the following Chaplain Offices:
(A) the Office of the Chief of Chaplains (OCCH)
(B) the United States Army Institute for Religious Leadership (USA-IRL)
(C) Other strategic-level programs of the Chaplain Corps (e.g. Army Strong Bonds)
OCCH provides leadership to the Chaplain Corps and exercises technical supervision over chaplains, Religious Affairs Specialists, directors of religious education (DREs), religious activities, and religious support operations throughout the Army. OCCH is supported by the Strategy, Plans, Policy and Resources (SPPR) Directorate in the Pentagon, the Strategic Initiatives Group (SIG) at Fort Hamilton, NY, and the Religious Support Operations Center (RSOC) at Fort Jackson, SC. The USA-IRL represents the Field Operating Agency (FOA) the Chief of Chaplains intends to establish at Fort Jackson. The USA-IRL will be one entity, with four organizational elements—the RSOC, the Religious Leadership Academy (RLA), the Graduate School for Army Chaplain Corps Professional Development (GSACCPD), and the Non-Commissioned Officers Academy (NCOA)—which will operate under the leadership and control of the Chief of Chaplains.
