Abstract:

As part of a multiphased task sponsored by the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Staff, IDA assessed the national security communitys need for unclassified scenarios and found that significant demand exists. The assessment found that the recurring costs for scenario development are substantial, but they might be offset by potential options for major cost savings. Phase I of the study used a multifaceted approach to assess the need for unclassified scenarios among DoD users and their partners. Phase I included engaging key stakeholders, reviewing relevant literature, and surveying the national security community through a questionnaire and selected interviews. Analysis of the Phase I results yielded several major findings, which are detailed in the three volumes of this report.
