Normally, specific procedures are established to maintain these contacts, be it by means of contractual arrangements between the states involved, be it at the level of the ministers of defense or of subordinate commanders, or be it within a corps headquarters, where the commanding general may issue an order to that effect after prior coordination.
It is a feature of corps headquarters organized in a truly integrated way that the participating partners are accorded the same rights and duties in every respect.
This is ensured by manning key command functions, such as commanding general, deputy commanding general and chief of staff, on a rotating basis.
