Abstract:

This research examined the training needs for contingency contracting officers for a Power Projection Strategy. Contingency contracting officers CCOs that deployed to Operation Desert ShieldStorm ODS where asked to provide their perceptions of the training they received before ODS, training and equipment needs identified as a result of lessons learned from ODS, and whether current training meets those needs. The results of the study show that CCOs believe there are many areas of training that can be improved to ensure future contingency participants do not have to relearn the same lessons of ODS.
