Campaign Planning Process


Working Overview Slides

  • Commander's Critical Information Requirements (CCIRs):

    • List of information required by the commander critical to facilitating timely decision making that affects successful mission accomplishment. Key subcomponents are:

      • Critical Friendly Force Information. Friendly information with an anticipated & stated priority for planning and decision making (no abbreviation for this term).

      • Priority Intelligence Requirements (PIR). Intel requirements with an anticipated & stated priority for planning and decision making.

    • Historically, CCIRs have focused upon intelligence requirements identified by the CCTF & thus the C2 was the primary staff for development of CCIR.

      • Within an “systems planning approach” to a crisis, CCIRs expand to cover intelligence and information requirements for decision making.

      • This requires the additional direct support of the C5 (policy), C7 (civil-military), and POLAD (political advisor) to fully outline the CCIR.

  • CCIRs are important to intelligence / information planning & development of the Campaign Plan, OPLANs, & OPORDs.

  • CCIRs are established early on in the CTF planning process & are continually refined as the situation changes. CCIRs are updated to the CCTF, CTF staff, & components on a recurring basis.

EEFI & Critical Info

  • Essential Elements of Friendly Information (EEFI):

    • EEFIs are key questions likely to be asked by adversary officials & intelligence systems about specific friendly intentions, capabilities, and activities, to obtain answers critical to their operational effectiveness.

    • EEFI are critical for operational security (OPSEC), force protection, deception planning, & information operations planning.

    • While assessing & comparing friendly versus adversary capabilities during the planning process for a specific operation or activity, the commander and staff seek to identify the questions that they believe the adversary will ask about friendly intentions, capabilities, and activities (EEFI).

EEFI & Critical Info

  • In OPLANs / OPORDs, the EEFI are listed in Appendix 3 (Counterintelligence) to Annex B (Intelligence). EEFI can also be referred to or listed in the primary sections of the Campaign Plan Directive, Warning Orders, and OPLANs / OPORDs as desired for reinforcement of the criticality of this information.

    • Critical information:

      • Is a subset of EEFI. Information that is vitally needed by an adversary.

      • Identification of critical information is important – it focuses the remainder of the OPSEC process on protecting vital information rather than attempting to protect all classified or sensitive information.

      • Critical information is listed in the OPSEC portion of an operation plan or order. Some general categories of critical information are provided in Appendix A, "Examples of Critical Information."
