Abstract According to United States (U.S.) security strategy policy and military doctrine nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and commercial contractors are vital partners in accomplishing national security and military objectives. Contractors partner with the military and other U.S. agencies to provide security logistics nation-building and administrative duties during peacekeeping and combat operations. NGOs are vital for the U.S. and United Nations (U.N.) when conducting relief and reconstruction operations. Recent operations provide case studies on the performance of NGOs and contractors in different environments. This paper describes the effectiveness of NGOs and contractors in permissive and non-permissive environments. Additionally it examines the degree in which the military Services depend on contractors to ameliorate force structure and force cap limits. Finally this paper draws conclusions with respect to U.S. policy premature use of contractors to meet force structure constraints and implications on mission success. Recommendations are provided for future policy and strategy endeavors.
