Abstract
The Joint Planning Process (JPP) - by doctrine - does not include Contingency Contracting Support Plans (CCSPs) as an annex within Joint Operation Plans (OPLANs) or Joint Logistics Plans (LOGPLANs), thereby limiting Combatant Commander (COCOM) flexibility and responsiveness. Current OPLANS at the Joint-level generally discuss how forces will be contractually supported in-theater, but are not specific enough within the framework of the Joint Planning Process (JPP). This project analyzed the effectiveness of the Joint OPLANS with respect to contracting relationships in a contingency contracting environment. Conclusions and recommendations for the formal, detailed inclusion of CCSPs within the JPP include: The CCSP should be formally detailed in the Deliberate Planning Process (DPP) and Crisis Action Planning (CAP) Process from the National-level to the small unit-level; The formal, detailed inclusion of CCSPs within the planning process at the Joint-level would be a force-multiplier in terms of proactive vice reactive planning to contingencies within the Joint arena; and, Utilizing the experience of Contracting Officers (COs) within Joint planning cells would result in the ability to leverage time and provide the COCOM flexibility and responsiveness early on in the planning process within the framework of the CCSP.
