Abstract : This thesis is a continuation of research initiated by Lieutenant Commander Daniel F. Ryan, SC, USN to establish a basis for defining words and terms used in the field of contracting. Concurrent research in this area is being conducted by students at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA and the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, OH. Published definitions of twenty five terms presently used in Government contracting were examined and a synthesized definition was developed for each term. The synthesized definitions were then scrutinized by a select group of contracting professionals. Their feedback was used to develop a proposed definition based upon consensus.
