---- Approved For Release 2000/08/08 : CIA-RDP96-00788R002000190001-0 IAFM-OPS-HU-SA Reorganization of HQ INSCOM and CONUS Elements CH, SPEC ACTIONS BR 19 EKV 9att/glf/7829 1. Reference: IAFM-OPS-I3tJP DF, SAES, dtd 16 Nov 79. 2. Ref DF (Para 6) requested addressees review their functions and tasks, including those contained in USAINSCOM Reg 10-2, and provide list of functions which might be transferred to the Bde G-3 or USAOG. 3. As you well know, the classified mission and functions of this office are not covered in USAINSCOM Reg 10-2 so I will not address that issue. In regards to whether of not our functions might be transferred to the Bde G-3 or USAOG, I recommend against any such action at this time because it might be premature due to the nature of our project. 4. We have recently forwarded to the DCSOPS an action recommendinq the establishment of a Task Force consisting of 9 personnel. Personnel assigned to this task force will remain accounted for by their parent organization but will work directly for this office for the next 18-24 months. For the POM of FY 81, we have proposed the establishment of a detachment with an authorized strength of 12. Until such time, if ever, such a detachment becomes a reality I recommend against the functions of this office being assigned below the HQ INSCOM level. If the Task Force concept is approved it might be a bit awkward (command & control-wise) working directly under the ADCSOPS-UUMINT and might be more appropriate for the Task Force element to be assigned to the Office of The Special Assistant (OPS). 5. My bottom line is: until such time as the project develops into an actual operatinet element (if indeed it ever does) then the staff supervision of the project should remain at the HQ INSCOM level.
