Outsourcing entered the lexicon during the 1980s and today is a standard practice in the Department of Defense. Contractors are now filling jobs that traditionally have been held by government employees. As yearly budgets change, the decision to outsource or not outsource government jobs has placed a significant burden on project managers. This thesis focuses on the dynamic modeling of a work force labor mix consisting of civilian and contractor workers. It gives the government manager a tool to determine the optimum work force numbers for a given work load demand. It is envisioned that local managers will be able to use this study to make a more balanced and informed decision when hiring civilian and contract workers.
