Assessment Report (MAAR)
Resolute Support uses the MAAR report to gauge
the performance and capabilities of the Afghan National Defense and
Security Forces (ANDSF). The MAAR is submitted on a monthly basis by the
Train, Advise, and Assist Commands (TAACs) to the Resolute Support
headquarters in Kabul. The MAAR assesses the capabilities of the ANA and
ANP in warfighting functions and the
Functional Pillars - leadership, combined arms operations, command,
and control, personnel and training, and sustainment.
Resolute Support uses the MAAR to assess the
Afghan National Army (ANA) corps based regionally throughout the
country, the 111th Capital Division located in the Kabul area, the
Afghan Air Force (AAF), Afghan National Police (ANP) regional and
provincial Type A headquarters, Afghan Border Police (ABP) headquarters,
and other Afghan Special Security Force (ASSF) units.
Capability and Effectiveness Ratings. There are
five ratings for the MAAR. "In Development", "Partially Capable",
"Capable", "Fully Capable", and "Sustainable". Advisors at the TAAC
level and above deliver their assessments to the Security Force
Assistance (SFA) Center which systhesizes the information into an
overall assessment of the Ministry of Defense (MoD), Ministry of
Interior (MoI), and other organizations of the Afghan security force.
This analysis is conducted in a series of weekly, monthly, and quarterly
assessments that are used to continually refocus RS advising plans.
