Abstract:

This report describes six programs that encompass standby agreements or elements of standby agreements, discusses their histories and the organizational responsibilities for their creation and implementation, and analyzes their effectiveness with respect to mobilization responsiveness and problems associated with their use. The purpose of this report is to create a better understanding of how standby agreements might be used to improve responsiveness in manufacturing and service sectors critical to a mobilization effort. This document also presents a systems model of the processes for developing, updating, and activating standby agreements. It describes various authorities and responsibilities that may come into play during these processes and specifies the appropriate roles of government agencies and private firms with respect to a standby agreement program.
