Abstract:

First, we outline a general model of how DoD acquisition skills and organization integration capabilities affect the contribution of PMFs to mission performance. Second, we address risk management in PMF contracting by outlining a spectrum of control mechanisms. As PMF management is clearly not the sole job of the acquisition community, we argue that DoD policy-makers should rethink how the department might change itself in order to integrate PMF services more effectively and efficiently.
