Abstract : The methods for evaluating Air Force engineering proposals are well established. However, at times, the rating a proposal receives is arbitrarily and/or subjectively determined. The method proposed in this study will yield a systematically determined rating for each proposal. In this thesis, a multi- attribute evaluation methodology is developed based on the Analytical Hierarchy Process to prioritize proposals. The methods are applied to two different stages of the Air Force laboratory procurement process: the first stage is the resource allocation phase where division-level management decides which projects will be funded; the second stage is proposal evaluation, where the project engineer evaluates proposals sent in by defense contractors.
