 Kellogg Brown and Root - SourceWatch
Kellogg Brown and Root, also known as KBR Engineering and Construction, is a unit of the Halliburton Company which provides military support services.
Formerly known as Brown and Root Services, KBR was scrutinized in 2000 by the GAO for overcharging and providing unnecessary services in the Balkans.
Brown and Root's open-ended logistics contracts from the Army and Navy --indeed much of the military privatization campaign -- are grounded in a 1992 study the company did for the Defense Department that several analysts said formed the template for privatization of logistics for a downsized U.S. military.

Currently, Brown and Root estimates it has $740 million in existing U.S. government contracts (approximately 37 percent of its global business), most of which are in addition to the LOGCAP deal.
Brown and Root's work in the Balkans has been the most profitable for the company – the General Accounting Office (GAO) estimates the company made $2.2 billion in revenue during the military operations there, building sewage systems, kitchens, and showers and even washing underwear for the 20,000 soldiers stationed there.
A subsequent GAO report, issued September 2000, showed that Brown and Root was still taking advantage of the contract in the Balkans, noting that army commanders were unable to keep track of the contract, as they were typically rotated out of camps after a six-month duration, erasing institutional memory.

 Windfalls of War - The Center for Public Integrity
In 1992, Brown & Root was awarded the U.S. Army's first Logistics Civil Augmentation Program contract, an omnibus contract that allows the Army to call on KBR for support in all of its field operations, including combat, peacekeeping and humanitarian assistance.
KBR lost a second five-year LOGCAP contract—awarded to DynCorp in 1997— after the General Accounting Office reported in February 1997 that KBR had overrun its estimated costs in the Balkans by 32 percent (some of which was attributed to an increase in the Army's demands).
KBR was awarded a State Department contract in August 2002 to design and construct office buildings and diplomatic staff apartments among other tasks for the U.S. embassy in Kabul.
