Defense Contracting: Actions Needed to Explore Additional Opportunities to Gain Effficiencies in Acquiring Foreign Language Support
Sharon L. Pickup (au)
The ability of U.S. military personnel to communicate and interact with multinational partners, security forces, and local indigenous populations can be critical factors to mission success, as evidenced by operational experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Dept. of Defense (DOD) utilizes language professionals and regional experts within its ranks of military personnel to provide foreign language support, such as foreign language skills, regional expertise, and cultural awareness capabilities needed to execute missions, as well as contracted interpreters and translators who provide this support. To meet increased demands on the need for foreign language support from ongoing contingency operations, DOD has relied on contractors to supplement the capability provided by military personnel. As of Nov. 2012, the number of contractor personnel required by DOD was approx. 9,000. As a result, DOD has made considerable investments in providing contract support. This report identifies opportunities for DOD to improve its approach to contracting from a broad perspective as well as in areas related to foreign language support. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
