Identifying the appropriate balance between contractor and government staff is not a new challenge for the government. However, recent direction from Department of Defense (DoD) leadership has led to increased awareness of the importance of finding this balance. During the past decade, in-sourcing has received increased support from members of Congress and the Obama administration. Unfortunately, producing definitive guidance that can be used to objectively determine the appropriate balance between contractor and government staff has proven quite challenging.
The authors review the recent history of outsourcing and in-sourcing in DoD, assess relevant laws and policies, and offer interpretations of key terms. Using this information, they describe an approach to implementing current in-sourcing guidance and present a questionnaire designed to help officials make in-sourcing assessments in accordance with DoD policy.
