Abstract : The Defense Manpower Data Center conducted a survey of DoD procurement personnel in support of the Defense Financial and Investment Review study. The questionnaire was broken down into five main sections: Section I covered respondent characteristics; Section II covered pricing policies and practices; Section III covered profit policies and practices; Section IV covered contract financing policies and practices; and Section V covered contractor investment incentive policies and practices. Responses are compared to previous profit studies for each of the subject areas. This report is not required to understand the Defense Financial and Investment Review final report, but the personnel survey does present the most current perceptions of the procurement community in the subject areas. Keywords: Capital Investment, Contract Financing, Contract Pricing, Profit Policy, Pricing, Progress Payments, Weighted Guidelines. (Author)
