Abstract:

The initiatives described in this report provide a robust strategic policy and program framework for management of contractors accompanying deployed military forces, substantially strengthen the DoDs capabilities and performance in managing our current relationship with our contractors and contractor personnel, and achieve an unprecedented level of coordination among the DoD, the DoS, and USAID. Particularly through the full integration of contractor support into OPLANS and CONPLANS and the establishment of a deployable joint contracting command with HCA designation, reporting directly to the combatant commander, we have ensured holistic and consistent oversight and management of the acquisition process throughout all different periods of a deployment. Ultimately, the success of our warfighters is linked directly to the success of the management of our contracting workforce. We are working diligently to ensure that policies and procedures are in place for all joint, expeditionary contracting operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kuwait or anywhere else we deploy. Our objective is to better prepare the DoD for acquisition and logistical support of combat operations in the future.
