Doctrinal definitions

(Field Manual 3-0)

The commander's critical information requirements are elements of information required by commanders that   directly affect decision making and dictate the successful execution of military operations. The key to   effective information management is answering the CCIR.

CCIR are those key elements of information commanders require to support decisions they anticipate.

Information collected to answer CCIR either confirms the commander's vision of the fight or indicates the need   to issue a fragmentary order to execute a branch or sequel.

(Field Manuals 5-0 & 6-0)

CCIR are tied to decision commanders expect to make. They change throughout an operation, as   commanders make decisions and identify potential future decisions.

CCIR address only near-term decisions, not every anticipated decision. As commanders make decisions, their   CCIR change to support other anticipated decisions.

CCIR spare the commander from receiving irrelevant information. They also protect subordinate headquarters   from receiving excessive requests fro information.

The CCIR set information management and resource allocation priorities for staffs. CCIR also establish   priorities for allocating ISR resources.

All CCIR are not tied to decision points; however, some CCIR may support one or more decision points.
