On Tuesday, April 17, 2012, at 10:30 a.m., the Subcommittee on Contracting Oversight held a hearing entitled, “The Comprehensive Contingency Contracting Reform Act of 2012 (S.2139).”  Senator McCaskill and Senator Webb introduced S.2139 on February 29, 2012.  The legislation is based on the findings and recommendations of the Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan (the Commission), which were presented in its final report to Congress in August 2011. 

The purpose of this hearing was to review S.2139.  The hearing examined how S.2139 remedies systemic problems in contingency contracting.  The hearing also provided an opportunity to discuss what additional steps, if any, may be required to fully address findings in prior hearings and investigations by the Commission, Congress, and others regarding contracting in overseas military contingencies.
