Commission on Wartime Contracting

Congress created the independent, bipartisan Commission on Wartime Contracting in Iraq and Afghanistan (CWC) in 2008 to assess contingency contracting for reconstruction, logistics, and security functions; examine the extent of waste, fraud, and abuse; and provide recommendations to Congress to improve the structures, policies, and resources for managing the contracting process and contractors. The Commission held a number of hearings and filed interim reports to Congress in June 2009 and February 2011, and a final report in August 2011. It also issued five special reports.

The mandate of the CWC expired on September 30, 2011. The CWC website now serves as an archive of the Commission's work and is no longer updated.
