Can be scheduled, spontaneous or ad hoc
Less than a full-blown analysis (LFAR)

important to the reader/decisionmaker
Most popular report (“one-pager”)

To write SFAR, all available sources can be used:
Finished intelligence products
Historical essays
Academic journal articles
Past and recent classified reports
News articles

SFAR should have 6 main parts:
Executive Summary (using WEPs).Use specific words and Make estimation ( how luckily and unlikely )
Comment ( express your thought as an expert and analysts of the field )
Contact Data ( code name or your real name )
Endnotes/annexes( references of the source you have used )

Should not contain new facts (-> in discussion)
Should not contain estimative judgment (WEPs) -> there is no place to provide facts and analysis here
Should not be a restatement of the BLUF
Should provide insight into the analyst’s thinking on the subject
Uses words like ‘may’, ‘could’, etc (instead of WEPs)
May suggest future research (if you are prepared to do this)

How to start a SFAR?
Clarify your task
Organize your time
Consider your reader(s) / audience
Zero in on your subject –> focus, key questions, key findings
Use prewriting tools
Consider sources & plan research (search & research)
Organize your information & write first draft

What are the available sources on the topic? Maps?
 -> Consult colleagues, contact other agencies, etc.

How could more information be collected?       
Sources: access, reliability, validity?     
Analysis & judgment
Are structured analytical techniques beneficial?
