dc.description.abstractPrior MBA projects have analyzed the capabilities of various in-theater non-government organizations (NGOs) and their interactive efforts with the U.S. military toward rapid and effective humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. Those works, which focused on three Areas of Responsibility (AOR) (European Command, Pacific Command, and Southern Command) encompassed dozens of independent countries, thousands of miles of land and ocean, and 88 different NGOs, intended to provide guidance for decision makers to avoid redundancy in efforts and achieve more effective distribution of essential resources. However, inconsistent research methods and differing standards were applied across AOR, causing a lack of convenience and comparability of the data when evaluated as a whole. Our work systematically evaluated each NGO for the three AOR and universally applied a standardized financial and capabilities analysis to provide consistent and comparable results for decision makers. Commanders can now readily determine which NGO is best suited to perform the type of assistance required in the AOR based on financial stability and internationally accepted definitions of competency.en_US
