One of the first tasks given to the Strategic Planning Operational Research Team (SPORT), upon its establishment in January 1197, was to lead the effort of the Directorate of Defence Analysis (DDA) to develop a scenario-based capability planning framework. After consulting with Canada's major Allies, reviewing the literature and exploring possible methodologies, a concept for the framework was specified. A proof of concept trial was undertaken during the Spring of 1999. The status of the Force Planning Scenario Framework and the results of the proof-of-concept trial were reported to the Director General Strategic Planning (DGSP) in a series of two briefings. The first briefing took place on 28 June 1999 and covered the background of the project: the initiating factors, the goals and objectives of the project, the results of the concept exploration and the details of the proposed Framework concept. The second briefing, 14 July 1999, focussed on the results of the proof-of-concept trial and sought endorsement for the proposed way ahead. This report covers the content of the second briefing given to DGSP, describing the results of the Framework trial. This report will serve as one of the documents recording the history and process of the development of the Force Planning Scenario Framework.
