dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study is to identify problems that contingency contracting officers have faced in past contingencies, what problems they are facing in current contingencies, and what problems they are likely to face in the future as the nature of warfare changes in order to increase their efficiency and effectiveness. This effort was accomplished by conducting a historical analysis of contingency contracting from 1775 up to today's Operation Iraqi Freedom, with special emphasis placed on contingencies between 1990 and 2005. An evaluation of the generations of war was conducted to determine what challenges contingency contracting officers may face in the future. The results of this study revealed four main problem areas that hinder a contingency contracting officer's efficiency and effectiveness. These four areas are (1) Policy, (2) Planning, (3) Organization, and (4) Training. This study then analyzed each area to identify how it was hindering the contingency contracting officer. Recommendations ranged from developing a Joint Contingency Contracting Operations Manual to adopting a new contingency contracting structure based on the Yoder Three-Tier Model.en_US
