United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM)Preservation
of the Force and Family (POTFF) Programs Support Contract The
United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) is a Unified
Combatant Command of the Department of Defense (DoD). USSOCOM's
mission is to "Provide fully capable Special Operations Forces to
defend the United States and its interests." This also includes
three command priorities: "Deter, Disrupt, and Defeat Terrorist
Threats; Develop and Support our People and Families; and Sustain
and Modernize the Force". These priorities support USSOCOM's
ongoing efforts to ensure SOF are highly trained, properly equipped
and deployed to the right places at the right times for the right
missions. The USSOCOM Preservation of the Force and Family
(POTFF)'s mission is to build and implement a superior holistic
approach to address the pressure on the force and also the
increased stress on operators' families. POTFF's mission is
accomplished by increasing the physical, mental, social, and
spiritual capacity of the SOF over their careers, decreasing the
rate of physical and emotional injuries from all causes, and
significantly accelerating return to duty times. POTFF will
identify and implement innovative, persistent and valuable
solutions across the USSOCOM enterprise aimed at tangibly improving
career long occupational capacity, enduring health and ability to
remain highly resistant to extreme combat and inter-deployment
stress. USSOCOM is implementing a set of initiatives designed to
enhance the resilience and well-being of SOF and their families
throughout the USSOCOM enterprise. These initiatives are largely
preventive in nature and are intended to reduce incidences of
behavioral health problems throughout the force. The POTFF
initiative consists of four primary lines of effort (LoE): Human
Performance (HP), Behavioral Health, Spiritual Enhancement, and
Social/Family Programs. The program's end state is to prepare,
preserve, sustain and ultimately multiply USSOCOM's combat power by
application of integrated inter-disciplinary personal services
teams. These teams shall consist of Government Program Management

contract is to organize contractor support for human performance
and behavioral health services in order to augment DoD and Service
programs. These services shall be provided at the individual and

successfully implemented with the use of contractor personnel.
