This is an archived version of the Commission on Wartime Contracting website which was frozen on September 29, 2011. The Commission on Wartime Contracting is "an independent, bipartisan legislative commission established to study wartime contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Created in Section 841 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008, this eight-member Commission is mandated by Congress to study federal agency contracting for the reconstruction, logistical support of coalition forces, and the performance of security functions, in Iraq and Afghanistan. Section 841 requires the Commission to assess a number of factors related to wartime contracting, including the extent of waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement of wartime contracts. The Commission has the authority to hold hearings and to refer to the Attorney General any violation or potential violation of law it identifies in carrying out its duties. [...]. The Commission is required to issue at least two reports, an interim report and a final report to Congress. The final report shall include findings, identify lessons learned, and include specific recommendations for improvements to be made in a broad range of matters related to wartime contracting. The Commission will sunset 60 days after submitting its final report."
