Abstract : This monograph proposes a four step model for coordination planning between other government agencies (OGAs) and the U.S. Military during military operations. It discusses the need for such a model based upon the operations involving OGAs in a detailed report on Operation UPHOLD DEMOCRACY, 1993 through 1995 in Haiti. Military operations in Haiti during Operation UPHOLD DEMOCRACY confirm the doctrinal requirement for close cooperation between military forces and OGAs. This operation in particular involved many OGAs that required integration and coordination during the crisis action planning. This monograph also defines the roles, missions, and functions of some of the OGAs that are commonly involved in military operations. From this case study and the roles of specific OGAs, one can follow the discussion on the proposed coordination process details. This four step coordination process includes: Guidance Development, Capability Assessment, Integration and Resourcing, and Program Assessment (OCIP). The author recommends that military planners review GCIP and include it as doctrine to help planners with the difficult task of coordination planning, It also recommends that the model be taught or explained to those most common OGAs.
