Publication Date



The Naval War College (NWC) is in the midst of its initial review and revision of Navy Warfare Publication (NWP) 5-01, Navy Planning. The NWC is the ‘Primary Review Authority’ (PRA) for NWP 5-01. As the PRA, the NWC is responsible for the currency of NWP 5-01, and it is charged with review and revision (as necessary) every five years. Last published in 2013, NWP 5-01 entered the review cycle at the beginning of 2018. The intent of this article is to provide some insights into the NWC’s planning for, and execution of, the review and revision of NWP 5-01. Ideally, this article will stimulate stakeholders in the Navy Planning Process to start thinking about their own inputs to the review process.
