The teams and SOTFs retain responsibility for planning and executing those Concepts of Operation (CONOPs) while CJSOTF-A has a supporting role.
To correct the shortfall, the CJSOTF-A staff revamped the Commander's PIR for a more accurate reflection of the mission and decision points.
Therefore, we relied heavily on the CJSOTF-A J3 and SOTF Commanders' discretion on general direction and prioritization of each VSP's expansion plan.
The briefing flowed from the operational macro view of CJSOTF-A's mission to the tactical micro view of a VSP, followed by the comprehensive collection plan as it related to the phases of VSO expansion and meeting the lines of operation-based PIR.
At the successful conclusion, CJSOTF-A walked away with a phased collection plan mirroring the original requirements.
The CJSOTF-A J2 team developed a method to get out ahead of a highly ambiguous COIN fight.
