Liu Zhi headed as the commander in chief, Du Yuming, Li Yannian, Feng Zhi'an, Liu Ruming, Han Deqin, Sun Zhen as Deputy Commanders in Chief, and Li Su-Cheng served as the Chief of Staff. In the beginning of the Hsuchow-Bengbu Campaign, the GHQ Xuzhou Garrison commanded, with six armies and three pacification zones under its operational jurisdiction, a total of about 800,000 ground troops. Xuzhou Garrison also owned a considerable number of elements of ROC Air Forces stationed in Nanjing, Xuzhou, and Bengbu: either under the direct command of GHQ Xuzhou Garrison, or controlled straight through the mobilization of the Air Force Command authority.

January 19, 1949, because of a devastated defeat of the nationalist forces resulted in "Xuzhou-Bengbu Campaign" (Huaihai Campaign), Suppression General Headquarters of Xuzhou Garrison was indefinitely deactivated.
