Abstract:

Sequestration has forced the military services to downsize, but given today s world events, the mission appears to be growing. With that said, the Department of Defense DoD has relied extensively on the private sector during contingencies to help carry out various aspects of its mission for military operations. Because of certain military specialties needed, total force capacity restraints, and service rotation policies, the critical reliance on contractor support has increased the DoD s demand for Operational Contract Support OCS. This OCS increase has resulted in an equivalent reliance on Contracting Officer Representatives COR in order to provide effective and efficient contract surveillance for Contingency Contracting Officers CCO and ultimately Combatant Commanders CCDR. This has been further amplified because as the DoD continues to downsize, a COR s competencies knowledge, skill, and abilities KSA must be further developed to meet the CCDR s evolving OCS needs.
