This publication, Army Doctrine Reference Publication ADRP 1-03 The Army Universal Task List October 2015, provides the structure and content of the Army Universal Task List (AUTL). The AUTL is intended to inform all members of the Profession of Arms of what the Army contributes to the joint force in terms of tasks performed. Additionally, it is intended that proponent training developers use the AUTL to develop more comprehensive training and evaluation outline evaluation criteria for collective tasks and proponent combat developers to better understand the tasks a given unit must perform. The Army Universal Task List (AUTL) describes what well-trained, well-led, and well-equipped Soldiers do for the Nation. While focused on the land dimension, abilities of Army forces complement abilities of other Services. The ability of Army forces to perform tasks builds the credible land power necessary for joint force commanders to preclude and deter enemy action, win decisively if deterrence fails, and establish a rapid return to sustained stability. The AUTL provides a common language and reference system for doctrine, capability, and training developers. Proponents and schools use AUTL tasks, those tasks' recommended measures of performance, and the unit's table of organization and equipment to establish unit-specific, collective task training and evaluation outlines. Proponent training and evaluation outlines provide the measurable conditions and standards to be used by commanders in evaluating an organization and individuals' abilities to perform these tasks. The AUTL's link to the Universal Joint Task List (UJTL) at tactical, operational, and strategic levels aids analysts and planners in understanding the Army's role and integrating joint operations. The AUTL is a comprehensive, but not all-inclusive listing of Army tasks, missions, and operations. Units and staffs perform tasks, provide capabilities, accomplish missions, and conduct operations at corps level and below. For each task, the AUTL provides a numeric reference, a task title, a task description, a doctrine reference, and, in most cases, recommended measures of performance (measures). Training developers use these measures to develop training and evaluation outline evaluation criteria for supporting collective tasks. The task proponent is responsible for developing the training and evaluation outlines that supports each AUTL task. As a catalog, the AUTL captures doctrine as it existed on the date of its publication. The principal audience for ADRP 1-03 is the institutional force, specifically personnel performing capability development, integration functions, and training development. Commanders and staffs in the operational force should refer to the Combined Arms Training Strategies (known as CATS) in the Army Training Management System (known as ATMS) which contain training and evaluation outlines (known as T&EO) for collective and individual task. Commanders and staffs of Army headquarters serving as joint task force or multinational headquarters should also refer to applicable joint or multinational doctrine concerning the range of military operations and joint or multinational forces. ADRP 1-03 uses joint terms where applicable. Selected joint and Army terms and definitions appear in both the glossary and the text. Terms for which ADRP 1-03 is the proponent publication (the authority) are marked with an asterisk (*) in the glossary. Definitions for which ADRP 1-03 is the proponent publication are boldfaced in the text. For other definitions shown in the text, the term is italicized and the number of the proponent publication follows the definition. ADRP 1-03 applies to the Active Army, Army National Guard/Army National Guard of the United States, and United States Army Reserve unless otherwise stated. The proponent of ADRP 1-03 is the United States Army Combined Arms Center.
