Abstract : The key buzzword when depot maintenance is mentioned today is 'privatization'. With irrefutable excess capacity held to provide surge capacity during times of war, the Department of Defense (DoD) depots seem to exude inefficiency and monetary waste. This waste directly limits defense dollars available to address other existing threats. The research will examine the benefits and constraints of privatizing depot workload in order to answer the research question: Are we privatizing depot maintenance workloads in the best way possible?
