Universal Joint Task List

The Universal Joint Task List (UJTL) is the authoritative menu (or library) of all approved joint tasks required for planning, readiness reporting, training and exercises, lessons learned processing, and requirements. A universal joint task (UJT) is an action or activity assigned to a unit or organization to perform a specific function and/or provide a capability or resource. UJTs are based on extant joint capabilities, and they have a foundation in approved joint doctrine. Specifically, UJTs describe "what" joint organizations must do using common and joint terminology. The UJTL is required for developing a joint mission-essential task list (JMETL).
