The purpose of this project is to analyze Operational Contract Support OCS planning doctrine for maturity and applicability to single services. In the OCS Initial Capabilities Document, the Department of Defense declared OCS a core defense capability. Service components are participating in numerous initiatives to institutionalize this function through the creation of resources spanning doctrine, organization, training, material, leadership, education, personnel, facilities and policy DOTMLPF-P. This project argues for the balanced development of OCS planning acquisition and non-acquisition focused resources to effectively integrate this function across disciplines.
