Abstract : This report addresses: (1) the extent to which the Army is using the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP); (2) reasons for increases in the program's cost for the Bosnia peacekeeping mission; and (3) opportunities to improve program implementation from a doctrine, cost control, and contract oversight standpoint. As requested, it also addresses the potential for inefficiency by having similar support contract programs in the Navy and the Air Force. This report focuses on LOGCAP use during the peacekeeping mission in Bosnia but also includes information on LOGCAP use in Somalia, Rwanda, and Haiti. Details on our scope and methodology are included in appendix I.
