TITLE:  DoD Instruction, "DoD Munitions Requirements Process (DoD MRP)," 10/23/2003

SUMMARY:  This Instruction:  1. Reissues reference (a) to implement policy, assign responsibilities, and prescribe procedures for the Department of Defense Munitions Requirements Process (DoD MRP) under current Defense Planning Guidance (DPG), reference (b).  2. Guides the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to develop Threat Reports (TRs) for the operations specified in the current DPG, reference (b), and Contingency Planning Guidance (CPG), reference (c), or as directed by the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy (USD(P)) through the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence USD(I).  3. Guides each warfighting Combatant Commander, as determined by the current DPG, reference (b), and CPG,
reference (c), to generate a near-year Phased Threat Distribution (PTD), which allocates targets to each Military Service and allied forces (where political commitments exist). The near-year PTD focuses on a Combatant Commander-selected Operational Plan (OPLAN)/Contingency Plan (CONPLAN). The development of near-year PTDs is based on theater specific assumptions, which allow each warfighting Combatant Command to assess Service target allocations, target overlap, and risk. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff shall collaborate with the Combatant Commands and the Military Services, using the near-year PTDs and mid-term Defense Planning Scenarios (DPS), to develop the associated out-year PTDs, which are used by the Military Services to generate the DoD MRP munitions requirements to support the Defense Strategy addressed in the current DPG, reference (b), and CPG, reference (c). Each near- and out-year PTD consists of a Strike Favorable case and a Strike Unfavorable case.
