CONTRACTOR SUPPORT OF U.S. OPERATIONS IN THEUSCENTCOM AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY, IRAQ, AND AFGHANISTANBACKGROUND:
This update reports DoD contractor personnel numbers in theater and outlinesDoD efforts to improve management of contractors accompanying U.S. forces. It covers DoDcontractor personnel deployed in Iraq (Operation New Dawn (OND)), Afghanistan (OperationEnduring Freedom (OEF)), and the U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) area of responsibility(AOR).
KEY POINTS:
Previously for the 4th quarter FY 2010, USCENTCOM reported approximately 194,405contractor personnel working in the USCENTCOM AOR. Because aspects of the earlier census(which is a snapshot in time within the quarter), specifically the numbers in Afghanistan,appeared anomalous, a second count was undertaken. The revised count shows a total of 176,340 contractor personnel working for the DoD in the USCENTCOM AOR. This subsequentcount reflects a reduction in both the number of US and TCN personnel in Afghanistan whichhad been previously reported.

OND Contractor Posture Highlights:
o
There was a ~6% decrease (from 79K to 74K) in contractors in Iraq compared to the 3rdquarter FY 2010 census due to ongoing drawdown in Iraq.
o
USF-I met its goal to reduce the contractor footprint to 50K-75K by Sep 30, 2010, andcontinues the contractor reduction in Iraq. We expect a continued decrease in the number of overall contractors as FOBs close and military footprint is reduced throughout FY 11.
o
The military to contractor ratio in Iraq is now 1 to 1.12
o
DoD and DoS are conducting detailed planning for post-2011 contract support.
Afghanistan Summary
The main categories of contracts in Afghanistan are similar to those shown in the Iraq summary.We are working to present a similar detailed breakout for Afghanistan. We are currentlycapturing data by contracting activity as follows:Theater Support - Afghanistan: 11,428 (16%)LOGCAP: 23,274 (33%)U.S. Army Corps of Engineers: 6,150 (9%)DLA: 8,500 (12%)Other:* 21,247 (30%)Total: 70,599*
 Includes Army Materiel Command, Air Force External and Systems Support contracts, Special Operations Command and INSCOM.
OEF Contractor Posture Highlights:
o
The reported contractor personnel count in Afghanistan has decreased by ~34% (from 107K to 71K) compared to the 3rd quarter FY 2010 census. This reported decrease is not due to alarge reduction in contractor personnel, but rather is due to counting errors (primarily in onespecific reporting activity), that have been perpetuated throughout this Fiscal Year. Theseerrors have been identified and subsequently corrected as part of the reconciliation aspect of the SPOT-plus effort. This further demonstrates that all reporting activities must continue totransition from manual counts to the mandated automated system.
o
The military to contractor ratio in Afghanistan is 1 to 0.68.
o
Recent efforts to develop strategies to improve the viability of business in Afghanistaninclude developing a more skilled workforce, increasing business opportunities, increasingcommunity cash flow, improving public infrastructure such as roads and utilities andcommunity organizational capacity to maintain economic governance. All of these initiativeshave a direct influence on the hiring of Afghani local nationals.

General Conditions Regarding Contracts and Contractor Personnel
The Combatant Commander has provided specific guidance on arming contractor personnel and private security contractors in the USCENTCOM AOR through a series of Fragmentary Orders(FRAGOs) and other authoritative guidance, including the following:
o
Private security contractor personnel are not authorized to participate in offensive operationsand must comply with specific USCENTCOM Rules for the Use of Force (RUF). Under these RUF, private security contractor personnel are authorized to use deadly force onlywhen necessary in: self-defense, defense of facilities / persons as specified in their contract; prevention of life-threatening acts directed against civilians; or defense of Coalition-approved property specified within their contract. U.S Forces-Iraq (USF-I) issues toapproved private security contractor personnel a weapons card authorizing them to carry aweapon. This weapons card also contains the guidance for the RUF and the contractor  personnel’s signature acknowledging the difference between the RUF and the Rules of Engagement.
o
Private security contractor personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan must be properly licensed tocarry arms in accordance with host nation law and must receive USCENTCOM / CoalitionForces’ approval of their operations. DoD contractor personnel armed by DoD authoritymust report any use of force, including the firing of a weapon. This requirement and therequired information to be submitted are identified within the terms of the contract, MNF–IFRAGO, 09-109, and USFOR-A OPLAN 09-01.
