CENTER FOR NAVAL ANALYSES ALEXANDRIA VA
Pagination or Media Count:
The Navy is considering outsourcing some ship functions to civilians. This report focuses directly on the issues related to the outsourcing of service functions aboard deploying ships and examines practical issues that arise in integrating civilians into a mlitary working environment on board the ship. Our main interest in this effort is to get an accurate sense of the fleets issues and concerns, particularly the sailors who will have to work with civilians, should the Navy decide to outsource. This research memorandum identifies the main issues and discusses their effect on the compatibility of a mixed crew of active duty personnel and civilians.
