ambassador and USAID director prior to nominating a proposed HCA activity for approval in OHASIS, the approval process within the higher echelons of the DOS is generally an affirmation of the U.S.
* Information to support a legal review of an HCA project proposal may be obtained from the appropriate command HCA point of contact, project subject matter expert(s), and the project proposal form submitted via the Overseas Humanitarian Assistance Shared Information System (OHASIS).

Original Message From: Cables, Ted A LCDR COMUSNAVSO/C4F N431 Sent: Friday, June 22, 2012 15:45 To: Jones, John P LCDR, Mil-Group Orange N51 Subject: Orange Coast Guard [U] John, I just reviewed your ENCAP submitted via OHASIS, the one that proposes some construction and repairs to Orange Coast Guard facilities in Porto Nuevo.
The first place to gather more information is the HCA project proposal in the OHASIS database, which contains a section entitled "Detailed Description of Work." Pictures of the site location and engineering schematics would also be useful.
The "Justification" section of the OHASIS HCA project proposal form should contain the factual bases for how the project will promote the security of both the United States and Orange.
The information should also be reflected in the OHASIS HCA project proposal form, which receives interagency review during the nomination and approval stages.
Record of such approval/coordination is often reflected in the OHASIS HCA project proposal form.
In such event, the Comfort's medical team must act quickly to nominate the project proposal in OHASIS and receive USSOUTHCOM approval via the chain of command.
