520    A number of important steps have been taken in recent 
       years to improve the planning and management of Army 
       International Activities (AIA). Still, a need remains, and
       is widely recognized, for a high-level assessment 
       mechanism to allocate AIA resources more efficiently, 
       execute AIA programs more effectively, and highlight the 
       contributions of AIA to the National Military Strategy, 
       the DoD Security Cooperation Guidance, and The Army Plan. 
       This report presents a framework for assessing the value 
       of the Army's non-combat interactions with other 
       militaries. It provides an overview of AIA programs and 
       establishes their connection to the U.S. government's 
       current strategy for security cooperation. It also 
       provides a matrix of eight AIA "ends," derived from top-
       level national and Army guidance, and eight AIA "ways," 
       which summarize the various capabilities inherent in AIA 
       programs. Next, the report presents a method for linking 
       AIA "ends" and "ways" that involves a theoretical 
       rationale for security cooperation, selection criteria for
       AIA "output" and "outcome" indicators, and related 
       measures of performance and effectiveness. The report also
       describes the new online AIA Knowledge Sharing System 
       (AIAKSS) that is being used to solicit programmatic and 
       assessment data from AIA officials in the Army's Major 
       Commands. In addition, the report includes the results of 
       three test cases-involving the Army Medical Department, 
       the National Guard Bureau, and U.S. Army South-that helped
       to identify potential problems in evaluating AIA and to 
       suggest improvements in the proposed AIA assessment 
       mechanism. Finally, the report contains an extensive list 
       of "output" and "outcome" indicators that have been 
       reviewed by AIA officials throughout the Army.
