Abstract : This project concentrates on examining the extent of competitive procurement accomplished by prime contractors in placing their subsystem and equipment contracts. The report presents findings on prime contractor subcontract policies, concepts, and procedures regarding competitive procurement, and recommends a Department of Defense guide on advance procurement planning, competitive forecasting, and summary progress reporting. It is emphasized that the recommendations contained in this report are intended only as a guide, not a directive. Further, the ideas presented in this report do not in any way represent a shift of procurement responsibility from prime contractors to the Department of Defense.
