The Department of Colonial Affairs is a cabinet level department of the government of the United Federation of Planets, headquartered along with the other government departments in Paris, France, Earth (Sol III). The Secretary is appointed by the President of the Federation, and confirmed by the Federation Council. As such, the Secretary for Colonial Affairs reports directly to the CINCSF within ASR.
UFPDOCA is charged with the oversight of colonial development by Federation member worlds, in an attempt to avoid disputes and provide aid and support to all parties involved in colonial development. UFPDOCA supervises the various stages of colonial development, and keeps an extensive database of colony worlds. UFPDOCA is involved in nearly all stages of colonial development by Federation member worlds, includeing (but not limited to): surveying, initial establishment, resource allocation, dispute mediation, and conflict resolution. UFPDOCA also serves as a liaison between the Federation government, colony worlds, member planets/systems, and development corporations.
DOCA has been given the task of indexing the various colonies in use by players throughout ASR. Over the years, many players have created colony worlds of the Federation, either for their characters, or for various missions. By creating an index of these worlds, DOCA will be creating a resource for all players to use in the future, for a multitude of purposes.%nbsp;
