The Office of Plans and Initiatives (PM/PI) is the principal office within the Department of State providing policy recommendations and programmatic support on cross-cutting political-military planning, as well as integrated efforts to promote international cooperation on issues such as maritime security and global peacekeeping.
Three teams comprise the Office of Plans and Initiatives: the Policy and Plans Team, the Counter-Piracy and Maritime Security (CPMS) Team, and the Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) Team. The Policy and Plans Team coordinates strategic political-military policy and planning for the Department of State, and facilitates the development of global and regional political-military plans and policies with DoD. The CPMS Team leads the U.S. diplomatic partnership with over 80 countries, organizations, and industry groups with a shared interest in combating piracy. In partnership with DoD, the GPOI Team manages a U.S. program to build the peacekeeping and peace enforcement capacities of over 65 countries.
