Reports examine DoD civilian deployment



Reports examine DoD civilian deployment

On June 9, RAND Corporation released two reports examining the deployment of Department of Defense (DoD) civilians. The full case study is included in Expeditionary Civilians: Creating a Viable Practice of Department of Defense Civilian Deployment, and while a shorter report, Expeditionary Civilians: Creating a Viable Practice of Civilian Deployment Within the U.S. Interagency Community and Among Foreign Defense Organizations, focuses primarily on DoD civilian deployments in interagency and international missions.

The full case study is an end-to-end review and analysis of DoD civilian deployments that looks at the goals of DoD’s civilian deployment capability and attempts to identify gaps between policy and practice. The report also considers combatant commander’s perspectives on the use of civilians, and gathers lessons learned from analogous organizations in the United States and other countries to benefit DoD civilian deployments.

The shorter report explores the requirements needed to deploy DoD civilians, the types of missions deployable civilians support internationally, and the methods used to identify, select, track, and deploy eligible civilians. The report builds on interviews with representatives from 17 government agencies in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, the European Union, and Australia with well-established civilian deployment programs. The report makes several recommendations about championing, structuring, and planning expeditionary civilian operations.
