Abstract:

The JFMCC can best convey usable risk level information to operational and tactical level planners and maritime mission commanders through operations directives that include an Acceptable Level of Risk ALR Guidance Template. This Guidance Template covers all risk levels and incorporates operational implications, tactical implications, readily accessible historical examples, and expected loss rate for each risk level. The Acceptable Level of Risk methodology enhances current publications as they do not effectively address risk communication between operational and tactical commanders and planners. The introduction of an ALR Guidance Template provides a risk-to-force communication framework that allows operational planners and commanders to communicate with subordinates effectively.
