FY 2024 Joint Strategic Oversight Plan for Operation Atlantic Resolve (JSOP-OAR) is the annual joint strategic oversight plan submitted to Congress by the Lead IG for OAR. This plan complies with the oversight requirements pursuant to 5 U.S.C. § 419 of the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended.
The JSOP-OAR describes the Lead IG and partner agencies’ oversight of U.S. Government activities in support of the ongoing OAR mission, including activities related to Ukraine.
Operation Atlantic Resolve dates back to 2014 when the United States began an effort to reassure and bolster the NATO alliance in the wake of Russia’s military actions in Ukraine. Since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the OAR mission has grown. In July 2023, the U.S. President signed an executive order approving the mobilization of select reserve forces in support of OAR. In August 2023, the U.S. Secretary of Defense designated OAR as an overseas contingency operation following the activation of reserve forces.
