Abstract : The notion that adoption of commercial practices can improve defense acquisition is generally accepted. However, concise, readily available information and guidance, specifically designed with the objective of enabling DoD programs managers to adopt commercial practices, is currently lacking. To help fill this gap, the Defense Systems Management College (DSMC) initiated a study of commercial practices with the goal of identifying practices that may be useful to DoD program Managers. Documenting the study resulted in this guidebook. Market research and surveys, Supplier relationships, Contracting practices, Documentation and specification practices, Warranties, Programmatic practices
