This article explains what forward-deployed lawyers need in order to properly review work orders under LOGCAP. It explains the LOGCAP project validation process and the role of the legal advisor in that process. The article emphasizes that LOGCAP contracts and task orders are not subject to special treatment under the law, but must be formed, funded, and executed in accordance with the laws and regulations governing government contracts generally. In doing so, the article discusses United States fiscal law concepts as applied to rapid acquisition authorities used in the LOGCAP process. Ultimately, through explaining this process to deployed lawyers, then the deployed commanders who receive their advice will be empowered to make better informed decisions without risks of Anti-deficiency Act violations.

Keywords: LOGCAP, Afghanistan, Fiscal Law, unpriced, undefinitized
