Conditions: You are assigned to the Expeditionary Sustainment Command (ESC) / Sustainment Brigade (SB) Human Resources (HR) Operations Branch in a mature theater. Your unit is conducting the Military Decision Making Process (MDMP) in support of unified land operations. Your Area of Responsibility (AOR) is projected to surge from 60,000 to 90,000 personnel arriving over the next 90 days. The Support Operations Officer (SPO) tasks you to participate in the sustainment planning process to ensure HR operations are fully integrated into overall sustainment operations. You need to provide input from the theater HR perspective to include personnel accountability, postal, casualty operations, and contracting activities. You have access to references listed in the enclosed table. Some iterations of this task should be performed in MOPP 4.
Standards: Prepare a HR estimate that supports discussion of likely courses of action (COAs) developed during MDMP. Provide the SPO an update on all critical personnel capabilities affecting the operation. Identify risks associated with each considered COA from an HR perspective. Communicate risks by developing performance indicators to ensure HR operations are fully integrated into the overall sustainment plan.
