ABSTRACT

Defense Acquisitions: How and Where DOD Spends and Reports Its Contracting Dollars [December 20, 2016]   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The Department of Defense (DOD) has long relied on contractors to provide the U.S. military with a wide range of goods and services, including weapons, vehicles, food, uniforms, and operational support. Without contractor support, the United States would be currently unable to arm and field an effective fighting force. Costs and trends associated with contractor support provides Congress more information upon which to make budget decisions and weigh the relative costs and benefits of different military operations--including contingency operations and maintaining bases around the world."
