DOD ON CONTRACTORS AND ARMED FORCES

from the FAS Project on Government Secrecy, Volume 2005, Issue No. 99, October 21, 2005

A new Department of Defense Instruction defines "DoD policy and procedures concerning DoD contractor personnel authorized to accompany the U.S. Armed Forces."
Contractors deployed alongside U.S. military forces in Iraq and elsewhere have assumed increasing responsibilities for military tasks up to and including prisoner interrogation, but in doing so they have also created legal, administrative and procedural problems.

The new DoD Instruction attempts to bring some order to what has occasionally been a chaotic situation and addresses, for example, the conditions under which contractors may be armed.

The issuance of the Instruction earlier this month was first reported by InsideDefense.com.

See DoD Instruction 3020.41, "Contractor Personnel Authorized to Accompany the U.S. Armed Forces," October 3, 2005:
