Chief of Staff of Starfleet
- See also Joint Chiefs of Staff
The current Chief of Staff of Starfleet is Admiral Osbid Socim.
The Chief of Staff of Starfleet (sometimes referred to as Commander, Starfleet or COS) is responsible for, and has the authority under Article 4 of the Starfleet Charter, to conduct all the affairs of the Starfleet, including: recruiting, organizing, supplying, equipping, training, mobilizing, and demobilizing. The position is directly subordinate to the Starfleet Commander in Chief, and the officer that occupies it holds the minimum rank of full Admiral. The COS also oversees the construction, outfitting, and repair of Starfleet ships, equipment and facilities, and is responsible for the formulation and implementation of policies and programs that are consistent with the Federation's security policies and objectives established by the Federation President and the CinC. The Chief of Staff is essentially responsible for much of the paper work and policy implementation for Starfleet.
