Abstract : This thesis analyzes the conduct of the Procurement Management Review (PMR) within the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), the Army, the Navy, and the Air Force in order to develop a process and guide for the Marine Corps in its conduct of the PMR on the Marine Corps Field Contracting System. The objectives are to produce a user/management guide that will focus review efforts on the goal of procurement process improvement instead of deficiency reporting; minimize preparation time by HQMC evaluators; streamline the preparation effort and performance by the field contracting offices; and create a cooperative, nonadversarial environment in order to improve procurement efficiency and effectiveness. The development will proceed with a study of DLA and other Services procedures concerning their management philosophy regarding PMR conduct, their organization for conducting PMRs, and their measurement of legal and regulatory compliance. An incremental approach to Total Quality Management (TQM) implementation will be introduced to the conduct to the PMR.
