Figure 1-3. Suggested Outline Format for a Final Survey Report.
The final report will be used by the surveyed unit commander and his staff to upgrade the existing OPSEC
program of the unit. This detailed survey report also provides supporting Cl personnel with the information
necessary to provide the specific Cl support services necessary.
This type of detailed information can be critical, particularly when supporting special weapons units.
OPSEC PLANNING GUIDANCE
After the OPSEC survey is completed, the OPSEC planner for a unit or activity will use the report as one source
for preparing planning guidance. OPSEC planning guidance consists of:
An estimate of probable adversary knowledge of friendly capabilities and intentions. The OPSEC survey
report, a review of past compromises, and a review of open source literature should be summarized.
A preliminary listings of the EEFI pertaining to the unit or activity must be constructed. These EEFI are
defined as key questions about friendly intentions and military capabilities likely to be asked by opposing
planners and decision makers in competitive circumstances. EEFI listings routinely include items such as
specific capabilities, vulnerabilities, and intentions. It may be necessary to include specifics about troop
strengths, start times of operations and certainly, mission objectives. Items listed on EEFI listings do not need
to be restricted to classified information. A great deal of unclassified information, may fall into the category
defined as EEFI.
A summary of adversary intelligence capabilities. This information may be taken from the OPSEC Survey
report and any additional sources of threat information available. It should discuss the all-source intelligence
threat, as well as terrorist threat. Foreign intelligence collection capabilities should be discussed relative to the
different phases and sequences of events of the operation, or program being undertaken.
