Abstract
The emergence of the United States as the only remaining superpower requires its forces to deploy to an increasing number of foreign countries. U.S. businesses are expanding their markets to include many foreign countries as well. Additionally, the United Nation's role as a multi-national peacekeeping force is growing. This thesis investigates and compares the different contracting structures of the U.S. Army, the UN, and Apple as well as the duties and responsibilities of the contracting individuals within these organizations. It also explores the regulations and policy, training and organization-specific issues relevant to overseas contracting. This thesis revealed that although each organization is unique in its methodology of overseas contracting, it is possible for each organization to learn from another's method of contracting. This thesis did not determine the best way to conduct overseas contracting, nor was this the intent. The objective was to compare different ways of contracting overseas. In doing so, a reference document is now available for current and future contractors. The knowledge gained from this document will help prepare these contractors to meet the challenge of contracting in a foreign country
