Abstract:

At the request of the Department of Defense DoD, the Institute for Defense Analyses IDA assessed the national security communitys need for unclassified scenarios and found that a significant demand exists. Furthermore, IDA found that the current recurring costs for scenario development are significant but potential options for cost-savings exists. The intent of this volume is to provide detailed analytic support to these conclusions and others that are discussed in volume I, Assessment Overview and Results. In order to develop these findings, in Phase I of the study IDA constructed an online questionnaire that was distributed by the Office of the Director of Program Analysis and Evaluation and the Force Structure, Resources, and Assessment Directorate Joint Staff, J8. Between 26 September 2007 and 31 October 2007, IDA received a total of 78 completed responses to the questionnaire. Upon reviewing the completed responses, IDA determined that a sufficient amount of data for analysis had been collected and began to induce a number of general and detailed conclusions. This volume graphically depicts the data from the questions in the on-line questionnaire. Data from the questionnaire are broken down at both the aggregate and organizational levels and are ordered sequentially consistent with the order of the questions in the questionnaire. For reference, this volume also contains a copy of the questionnaire as it appeared to respondents. Additionally, in instances where graphs were not conducive to depicting data collected from the questionnaire, other methods, such as lists, were used to describe findings.
