520    This report examines mechanisms, sources, and inter-
       Service agreements for funding special operations forces 
       (SOF) operations and provides recommendations to reduce 
       the frequency and duration of disputes between the United 
       States Special Operations Command (SOCOM), the Military 
       Departments, and Geographic Combatant Commands over their 
       respective funding responsibilities for SOF, especially 
       with respect to when Service Common (Major Force Program 
       (MFP) 2) and SOF Peculiar (MFP 11) funds should be used. 
       The Geographic Combatant Commanders, in accordance with 
       guidance received from the President and Secretary of 
       Defense, generate requests for unplanned activities and 
       operations, sometimes in response to unanticipated events.
       Such events fall outside planned and programmed activities,
       creating validated operational support requirements that 
       are unfunded and/or unbudgeted. Each time this occurs, it 
       leads to prolonged negotiations to work out funding 
       responsibility disputes among a variety of stakeholders to
       secure the funding necessary to execute the new 
       requirement. SOCOM's Global SOF Network (GSN) envisions 
       increased use of SOF, which would further increase the 
       frequency of such disputes and could be hindered by 
       current funding processes, motivating the research 
       conducted to produce this report. If the President and 
       Congress agree to expand the use of SOF as described by 
       the GSN concept, it would be necessary to increase the 
       flexibility of funding available for validated but 
       unfunded operations. To increase the effectiveness of SOF,
       the Department of Defense needs funding solutions that are
       responsive to global events while enabling effective 
       financial stewardship that satisfies the needs of all
