Contractors on Deployed Military Operations: Unite... Cover Image
Added September 01, 2005
Contractors on Deployed Military Operations: United Kingdom Policy and Doctrine. Authored by Professor Matthew Uttley.
The author examines the controversies surrounding deployed contractor support, the ways that the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MoD) has harnessed private sector capacity, and the lessons this provides for U.S. policymakers and military planners. He suggests the need for ongoing policy and doctrine refinement by defence officials as well as greater independent scrutiny of developments, not least because the use of contractors on deployed operations has an important impact on government expenditure choices, public accountability, the efficiency and effectiveness of the military establishment, and the conduct and outcome of armed conflict.
