Abstract : Air Force dining facilities are stressed world wide as a result of PBD 720 driven military force reductions, loss of personnel due to deployments, as well as reduced appropriated funds to fund mess attendant contracts, equipment replacement and facility maintenance and repair. This research looks at outsourcing as an innovative method that would provide Air Force decision makers with solutions when considering outsourcing its dining facilities. The fit of the co-sourced feeding model at Kent State suggests that the Air Force would benefit from a similar co-sourced feeding model in its dining facility operations.
