The Defense Department is exploring measures to build up its contracting activities and drive infrastructure sustainability through reviews of its commercial capacity requirement and business base, DoD News reported Tuesday.

Amaani Lyle writes that DoD is working toward a goal of more operational flexibility and integrating contract support into war games and curriculums at war colleges to build it into the thought process.

“We consider all that so that we can come up with a coherent defense seal of policy,” Alan Estevez, principal deputy undersecretary of defense for acquisition, technology and logistics, said Monday.

Sustainability efforts include work with commercial partners to provide power capability at bases such as Fort Irwin in California, the report said.
