The environment in which these programs, practices, and policies have been developed is presented. Academic attitudes are provided regarding the necessity for and effectiveness of ethics legislation directed toward Government contractors. The objective of this study was to identify both similarities and differences between Government and non-Government contractor ethics program, practices, and policies, and to determine whether or not unique legislation directed toward Government contractors makes a difference in the content of ethics policy documents. A survey was developed and used for ranking and analysis of primary areas of ethical interest to contractors. Ethics Sentencing Guidelines, Primary Areas of Concern, Government Contractors, Non- Government Contractors, Defense Industry Initiatives.
