Abstract:

The U.S. Special Operations Command USSOCOM is concerned that certain decision aids do not adequately support analysis of contributions by special operations forces SOF. Of special concern are the computer based models, currently in use by the Joint Staff, staffs of unified and specified commanders, and service staffs to support the Joint Strategic Planning System JSPS and the Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System PPBS, i.e., those models used to support resource allocation decisions. RAND was tasked to evaluate current coverage of SOF by computer based models, develop a construct for analysis of SOF contributions, and make recommendations for further development of models. RWJ
