Staff Operations Officers (SOOs) plan, guide, and support intelligence collection operations, counterintelligence activities. SOOs develop expertise on a particular geographic region or target (such as terrorism, counterintelligence, proliferation, or crime) and perform coordination and investigation that drives operations. Role is to provide strategic guidance, capabilities and resources to the components pursuing operations. SOOs provide the 'big picture' in their guidance to operations.

Certain operations require considerable operational, legal, and budgetary coordination, much of which is performed by SOOs. SOOs also play a role in obtaining approvals, which are directed by Senior Leadership.

SOOs are the customer's representative to the security community. SOOs interact with the broad range of Intelligence Community agencies on operational matters and often work with their counterparts. SOOs may have the opportunity to brief Senior Leadership, or attend high level meetings.

SOOs must possess excellent communication skills, as they are often required to write nuanced operational guidance or brief complex developments, often at short notice. SOOs are also consummate networkers and problem solvers, reaching across the organization to overcome hurdles and enable operations. SOOs must be flexible, pay attention to detail, and have the ability to multi-task.
