Force Pool

The Force Pool defines the number and types of civilian requirements that each Force Provider must be prepared to source. The Demand Signal and Force Pool will be reviewed each year as part of the annual Global Force Management cycle to ensure the data remains consistent with requirements. The updated Force Pool will be posted as required.
