Requirements and Integration Division (CG-R57)

The primary focus of this division is to determine the required size of the Reserve, the ability of the Coast Guard to produce the required number of reservists, and the risks associated with any differences between the two. This will be done by integrating contingency response requirements generated by the Area Commanders with the capability managers in the Assistant Commandant for Capabilities (CG-7). As the CG-R organization comes up to full operating capability, detached duty personnel answerable to CG-R will be placed inside the Office of Deployable Specialized Forces(CG-721), Office of Boat Forces (CG-731), Office of Shore Forces (CG-741) and the Office of Cyber Forces (CG-791).
