Abstract : This study assembled the experiences of the contracting professionals who supported Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm from their continental United States based Department of Defense offices. The results of the study show that these professionals actively supported the conflict just as much as the contingency contracting officers who were deployed to the Middle East. No major differences in contracting methods appeared among the different agencies studied. However, the study does suggest that certain regulations should be considered for changes or waivers that go into effect during military contingencies. Also, there are specific training requirements that contracting professionals should receive in order to support a military contingency properly.
