Abstract : These studies include a broad class of intellectual activity characterized by the application of the tools of operational or systems analysis to Army problems. The studies are analytical examinations to assist Army decisionmakers. They develop assessments, alternatives, recommendations, or supporting methodologies. They contribute to greater understanding of relevant issues and lead to conclusions and recommendations for use by decisionmakers. The central purpose of each study is to support action when there is a reasonable expectation of a significant contribution to decisionmaking or policy development. These studies are performed by, or with assistance from specially formed ad hoc task groups, organizational staff personnel, in-house Army study organizations, appointed or contracted consultants or experts, commercial study organizations, or nonprofit organizations. Two new data items have been added to this edition of the TASP. The first added item is the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) accession number. The second new data element is the contract level of effort (CLOE), expressed in professional staff years (PSY). The CLOE is an agency's estimate of the level of work required to accomplish the study effort.
