Summary
Faced with a goal of increasing the Department's investments in modernization without increasing overall defense budgets, DOD has recently focused on the cost of support operations and their associated infrastructure, with the objective of finding ways to provide required support resources and capability at reduced costs. DOD recognizes that portions of its support structure are inefficient and continue to absorb a large share of the defense budget To the extent support costs can be reduced, available future defense dollars could be used for modernization or other defense priorities. The Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) requested that DSB identify DOD activities that the private sector could do more efficiently and to determine the expected savings from outsourcing. DSB, a civilian advisory board to DOD, issued two reports in 1996 addressing outsourcing and other opportunities for substantially reducing DOD support services. The first focused solely on outsourcing and privatization issues. The second, incorporating findings from the earlier report, had a broader scope that included other methods for reducing infrastructure costs. In preparation for the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR), OSD's Program Analysis and Evaluation (PA & E) directorate assessed the DSB's savings estimates from the second report. Our analysis also focused on the second report's findings and recommendations
