Abstract:

This handbook is meant to serve as a tactical guide for Contingency Contracting Officers (CCOs) performing construction-focused activities within the USSOCOM theatre of operations. This handbook is not intended to override or contradict any applicable regulation, policy, or standard operating procedure, nor is it intended to cover contingency contracting principles from A-Z. For an overview of contingency contracting fundamentals, see the USSOCOM Contingency Contracting Module or Contingency Contracting-A Joint Handbook for the 21st Century. As an acquisition professional, a CCO should always practice responsible stewardship, flexibility, and adaptability to best support mission objectives. While this handbook will provide examples, possible solution sets, and guiding principles for successful construction management by a CCO, no two contingency experiences are the same. Thus, this handbook is intended to help the CCO operate with a synergistic approach to integrating the joint capabilities of the expeditionary environment.
