Abstract : Presidential Executive Order 12352 directed government agencies to develop contracting career programs that would produce a professional work force. Under this order an interagency group, Task Group Six, proposed minimum selection and appointment criteria for contracting officers. This thesis examined the Task Group's criteria as they relate to administrative contracting officers (ACOs) in Department of Defense plant representative officers. A survey was conducted to determine the demographic profile of the current ACO work force. Minimum experience, education and training requirements were then proposed based on the Task Group's recommendations, the ACO demographic profile and the work force's opinions.
