Joint Staff Officers Guide AFSC Pub 1 -- 1997

Appendix K CJCS Planning Order

1. Purpose. The PLANNING ORDER may be issued by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to initiate Phase V for the supported commander. It does not eliminate the CJCS requirement in Phase IV to obtain NCA approval of a COA before execution in Phase VI. The Planning Order is normally approved by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

2. When Issued. A Planning Order is issued when execution planning is desired before NCA approval of a COA is obtained or to compress the phases of the CAP while obtaining NCA approval on a CJCS-recommended COA (also see Appendix L).

3. How Issued. A Planning Order is normally issued by record communication using a precedence of IMMEDIATE or FLASH. If the situation is sufficiently time-sensitive, voice communications, GCCS Internet Relay Chatter (IRC), or Video Teleconferencing (VTC) can be used to pass Planning Order information; however, a record communication will be forwarded as soon as practicable to confirm oral or WIN orders, tasks, etc., and to keep all crisis participants informed.

4. Addressees. AIG 8790 will normally be used in CAP messages. Action addressees in the AIG are the CINCs and DIRNSA. The C2 paragraph will designate supported and supporting commanders. Information addressees will include the Services and other interested commands and agencies. Component commanders may be included as information addressees to speed dissemination and facilitate planning.

5. Contents

a. At the Joint Staff level, the Planning Order generally equates to a planning directive in the deliberate planning process and will contain all readily available guidance pertaining to the crisis. The precise contents of the Planning Order may vary widely depending on the nature of the crisis and the degree of prior planning. Where little or no prior planning exists to meet a crisis, the supported commander will be given the guidance necessary to permit him to begin crisis planning. The Planning Order should be issued as soon as possible, even if detailed guidance is not available. NORMALLY, THE PLANNING ORDER WILL ALLOCATE MAJOR COMBAT FORCES AND STRATEGIC LIFT AVAILABLE FOR PLANNING. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION SHOULD BE ISSUED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE IN MESSAGE FORM AND REFERENCE THE INITIAL PLANNING ORDER.

b. The Planning Order defines the objectives, anticipated mission or tasks, pertinent constraints, and, if applicable, tentative combat forces available to the commander for planning and strategic lift allocations. Further guidance relating to the crisis, including any specific direction from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will also be included as necessary, but the supported commander will retain maximum flexibility in determining how he will carry out his assigned mission and tasks.

c. Major paragraphs and items of information that should be considered for inclusion in the Planning Order are as follows:

(1) Statement That the Message is a Planning Order. State that the message is a Planning Order and indicate specific task assignments or requests to supported and supporting commanders, such as the deadline for receipt of the Operation Order. If not previously requested in a Commanderís Estimate Request Order, assign USTRANSCOM the task of sending a preliminary deployment estimate and force closure profile to the supported commander and inform the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

(2) Situation. A short summary of the situation, including the following, as appropriate:

(a) Political situation and possible enemy forces in the expected area of operation and a brief description of the area of operation

(b) Anticipated attitude and actions of friendly nations

(c) Type, level, and source of major combat forces available for planning or a request for the commanderís assessment of forces and strategic lift required

(d) Assumptions that may significantly affect the commanderís planning

(3) Mission. A concise statement of the mission to be accomplished and its purpose

(4) Execution

(a) Course of Action. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff will specify a COA to be planned. Reference may be made to an existing OPLAN, CONPLAN, or functional plan.

(b) OPSEC Guidance. Include guidance similar to that in the Warning Order.

(c) PSYOP Guidance

1. PSYOP Mission. Give directions to conduct PSYOP in support of the military mission. Circumstances may dictate a more definitive statement.

2. PSYOP Objectives. List specific target audience perceptions and behaviors sought.

3. PSYOP Themes. List themes to stress and avoid to achieve each objective or refer to theme in an OPLAN.

(d) Intelligence Guidance

1. Intelligence personnel and equipment available to augment the supported commander

2. Availability of national intelligence collection and communications assets

3. Delegation of SIGINT Operational Tasking Authority

4. ROE for intelligence collection operations

(e) Counterintelligence (CI) Guidance

1. Designate Services to furnish forward CI elements.

2. Establish CI liaison responsibilities.

3. Develop CI collection requirements.

(f) Civil Affairs (CA) Guidance

1. CA Mission. List required actions and specific results sought, such as minimizing interference and maximizing influence regarding the civilian populationís impact on military operations; satisfying legal and moral obligations of the commander to the civil population; determining the availability of host-nation support resources; supporting humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations; enhancing friendly nation stability and infrastructure development; and facilitating postconflict restoration or transition activities.

2. CA Objectives. List specific results sought, such as determining assessment of civil, indigenous, and host-nation support resources; supporting humanitarian assistance and population or resource control operations; assisting civil requirements; facilitating postconflict transition activities; and enhancing friendly nation self-help capabilities to furnish socioeconomic services.

(g) Coordinating Instructions

1. Proposed C-day and L-hour (if other than 0001Z) for planning*

2. Anticipated date of execution (D-day). This date may be tentative at this time, but it gives the commander a relative time-frame for planning, based on the CJCS perception of urgency.

3. Anticipated duration of operations

4. DEFCON or deployability posture

5. Known operational constraints; e.g., overflight, port clearances, and revisions to existing ROE

6. USTRANSCOM coordination and monitoring instructions

7. Authorization for direct liaison between commanders

(5) Administration and Logistics

(a) Transportation, as follows:

1. Airlift movement priority

2. Allocation of strategic lift resources available for planning, if applicable (number and type if known)

3. Load planning factors for each type of lift resource, if available (ACL; number of passengers; outsize, bulk, and oversize cargo)

4. Other strategic movement planning guidance as appropriate (such as fund cites for pre-positioning strategic lift resources)

(b) JOPES instructions

(c) Force activity designators (FADs) assigned to forces in the operation or CJCS project code if warranted (CJCS project code obtainable from JMPAB)

(d) Known logistics constraints

(e) Personnel deployment criteria

(f) Code words and code numbers of the operation

(g) Reporting instructions: special instructions and suspenses for the submission of reports

(h) Classification and declassification guidance

(i) Public affairs guidance

(j) Combat camera

(k) Restricted access SPECAT handling

(6) Command and Signal

(a) Communications guidance

(b) Command relationships. Include a designation of supported and supporting commanders, coordination instructions, and listing of the command relationships (COCOM, OPCON, TACON) being proposed for NCA approval that the gaining commander may exercise over transferred forces and the locations where the transfer will be effective (normally the AOR boundary). When it is decided that forces will not transfer from one CINC to another, but those forces must perform actions at the direction of the supported commander, then a "support" relationship must be established between the two combatant commanders.

(c) WIN TLCF guidance
