The purpose of this report is to examine the process used by the Strategic Joint Staff to determine the Force Posture and Readiness FP and R of the Canadian Armed Forces. The CDS Directive for CAF Force Posture and Readiness 2013 identifies a need to better direct, quantify, measure, and manage the Readiness of the CAF. The goal is to refocus discussions of CAF Readiness away from what has been generally a qualitative depiction and focusing dialogue on a quantitative approach that deliberately measures output and better represents issues described as Force Posture and Readiness The scope of this task included a review of the business requirements, the existing process, an examination of the current FP and R data collection application, and a review to determine if the Strategic Analysis Support Tool SAST system or other DND information systems should provide data to FP and R.
