Organization: NPFC
Publication Date: 29 November 1999
Status: inactive
Page Count: 9
scope:

This Directive:

Applies to the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), the Military

Departments, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Combatant Commands, the Defense Agencies, and the DoD Field Activities, and all other organizational entities within the Department of Defense (hereafter referred to collectively as "the DoD Components").

Ensures that OPSEC planning and analysis, to determine applicability, is performed by those most familiar with the operational aspects of a particular activity together with their supporting intelligence, counterintelligence, and security countermeasures elements. The applicability, implementation, scope, and OPSEC measures are determined by commanders, supervisors, or decisionmakers with the ultimate responsibility for mission accomplishment.

Applies to all activities that prepare, sustain, or employ the U.S. Armed Forces during war, crisis, or peace. The DoD OPSEC Program reaches all levels of military operations; research, development, test and evaluation activities; treaty verification activities, nonproliferation protocols, and international agreements; and other selected support activities such as force protection.

Applies to DoD contracts that support the functions stated in subsection 2.3., above when the Heads of the DoD Components, or their designated representative, determine, in writing, that OPSEC measures are necessary in a contract. Certain acquisition programs may require OPSEC measures to help protect critical program information in accordance with DoD Directive 5200.39 (reference (d)).

Applies to special access programs as they require unique OPSEC plans, surveys, and activities to be conducted as a method to identify, define, and provide countermeasures to vulnerabilities in accordance with DoD Directive O-5205.7, DoD Instruction O-5205.11, and DoD 5220.22-M (references (e), (f), and (g)).

The DoD Components with minimal activities that could affect national security may apply to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Command, Control, Communications, and Intelligence for an exemption to the requirement to establish a formal OPSEC program.
