AbstractEstablished in 1985, the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP) is a U.S. Department of the Army (Army) program that preplans for the use of global corporate resources in support of worldwide contingency operations. In the event that U.S. forces deploy, contractor support is then available to a commander as an option. The focus of this review is LOGCAP Task Order 130 that was awarded on April 27, 2006, to Kellogg, Brown and Root Services Inc. (KBR) to provide services necessary to support, operate, and maintain the Chief of Mission and Multi-National Force-Iraq staffs located at the U.S. Embassy-Iraq, and at other Chief of Mission sites within Iraq located in Baghdad, Basra, Al Hillah, and Kirkuk. We performed this review at the request of the Management Counselor, U.S. Embassy-Iraq. The broad objectives of this review were to determine whether the U.S. Government is receiving the services paid for under LOGCAP Task Order 130 and whether the support provided is reasonable, efficient, and cost effective. This report specifically addresses three issues: (1) Does the government have a process in place that ensures requirements are properly validated?; (2) Did KBR's performance meet contractual requirements in an effective and efficient manner?; and (3) Is the government performing adequate oversight of KBR's performance? This is a partial review of Task Order 130; it specifically examined elements of contractor operations conducted within the International Zone of Baghdad, Iraq, for services in four areas: fuel operations, food service, billeting, and morale/welfare/recreation services.
