Risk

Management, PEACE, and GAR 2.0

In March 2018 the Commandant issued

ACN 030/18; Promulgation of Risk Management Commandant Instruction. This notice

cancelled existing risk management instructions and implemented COMDTINST

3500.3A, which reintroduces the PEACE and STAAR models for risk management and

analysis, and also implements GAR 2.0. While we have one year from the

promulgation of the message to implement the changes, OIAs are adopting the

changes at varying paces.  Full plans for full Auxiliary implementation

are being finalized and we will post further information as it becomes

available.  Documents and job aids are available

from our Members Only page (login required)

This constitutes some major changes

in the process that we use to conduct risk analysis; it simplifies the process,

and increases accuracy of the end product. In the following links you will find

the Commandant Notice, ACN 030/18; the governing instruction, COMDTINST

3500.3A; links to the referenced Job Aids for PEACE, STAAR, and GAR 2.0; and a

link to the Risk Assessment Matrix (RAM).

Everyone involved in operations is

strongly encouraged to take “Introduction to Risk Management Course” 100202 in

AUXLMS,  https://auxlearning.uscg.mil,  within the Auxiliary

Operations catalog.
