The focus of this research project is the transformation of defense contracting activities associated with supporting logistics organizations. For purposes of this research paper logistics contracting support is defined as being those contracting activities associated with supporting the organizations providing logistics support to the services to include base operating support services for deployed elements in a combat theatre. It does not include logistics contracting support for post camp or station in the continental United States or permanently deployed units overseas (i.e. - Europe Korea or Japan). In particular this paper will look at the logistics support contracting activities within the Department of Defense the Department of the Air Force the Department of the Navy (including the Marine Corps) and the Department of the Army and make recommendations for providing more efficient contracting support to the service logistics organizations through a joint logistics contracting support organization. This will eliminate redundancies improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the contracting support activities and save operating and procurement costs which can be reprogrammed to support equipment modernization.
