Abstract : This report was prepared to provide the client, Business Executives for National Security (BENS), with a framework to identify defense functions suitable for privatization. This is a timely and relevant issue. The defense budget has declined 35% between 1985 and 1994, forcing key decision makers to maximize the value of dollars spent on each military function. The private sector can compete for functions formerly performed by the military, a multi-billion dollar market, while the Department of Defense (DoD) benefits from cost savings through private expertise and market-driven efficiency. DoD can use these savings to fund higher priority defense programs or offset reductions imposed by budget-conscious officials.
