Intelligence Community Needs Reform
Identify an intelligence collection-related issue that requires a solution.
You will need to:
1) Identify an intelligence collection related issue that requires closer examination.
2) Clearly state the problem.
3) Explain why this is an important issue. How will further research and solution assist with mitigating the effects of this issue?
4) Offer a set of solutions, with an optimal solution for recommendation.
These are the parts that need to be included:
A. Introduction/Synopsis. Identify and introduce your key issue. Provide a succinct synopsis of the problem and why the issue merits further discussion and resolution.
B. Background/Problems. Outline the scope of the issue and provide background information to orient your audience. The focus of this section is to orient a decision-maker to key issues in order to facilitate the resolution of the problem on an understanding of the facts that you identify. This section should be supported by evidence - as opposed to opinion. It is imperative that you do not shift from the mail topic and pose issues that cannot be resolved.
C. Solution. Propose a set of solutions with pro's and con's to each. Recommend the optimal solution.
D. Conclusion. Write a conclusion in order to wrap up the white paper and enhance your readers' understanding.
