Contractors represent more than half of the U.S. presence in the contingencyoperations in Iraq and Afghanistan, at times employing more than a quarter-millionpeople. They have performed vital tasks in support of U.S. defense, diplomatic, anddevelopment objectives. But the cost has been high. Poor planning, management, andoversight of contracts has led to massive waste and has damaged these objectives. The volume and complexity of contract actions have overwhelmed the ability of government to plan for, manage, and oversee contractors in theater. Contractingdecisions made during urgent contingencies have often neglected the need todetermine whether host-nation governments can or will sustain the many projectsand programs that U.S. contracts have established in their countries.Americans’ “Can do!” response to the challenge of contingency operations isadmirable, but human and
nancial resources have limits, and long-term costs areseldom considered when short-term plans are being framed. Much of the waste,fraud, and abuse revealed in Iraq and Afghanistan stems from trying to do too much,treating contractors as a free resource, and failing to adapt U.S. plans and U.S. agencies’responsibilities to host-nation cultural, political, and economic settings. This
nal report to Congress summarizes the Commission’s work since 2008 and o
 
ers15 strategic recommendations that it believes warrant prompt action.Delay and denial are not good options. There
will 
be a next contingency, whetherthe crisis takes the form of overseas hostilities or domestic response to a nationalemergency like a mass-casualty terror attack or natural disaster.Reform will save lives and money, and support U.S. interests. Reform is essential. Now.
