Monthly ANDSF
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 5 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.
