U.S. Congressional Oversight

U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee

Together with the House Armed Services Committee, the Senate Armed Services Committee and its subcommittees oversee the nation's military, including the Department of Defense and proposed legislation that affects U.S. military strategy, resources, and operations. The committee monitors on-going governmental operations related to military affairs, identifies issues suitable for legislative review, gathers and evaluates information, and recommends courses of action to the full Senate. The committee also investigates Department of Defense programs and examines allegations of wrongdoing.

The oversight of the U.S. government's use of PMSC's fits squarely within the jurisdiction of the committee. The committee has issued reports on the subject, and has held hearings to investigate Department of Defense spending requests for contractor services, among other DoD policy and procurement issues.
