Abstract:

The study was initiated to determine whether one facet of bid and proposal effort on major weapon systems acquisition -- the submission of complex proposals by principal subcontractors to several prime contract competitors -- was unduly burdensome and costly. The primary source of information was interviews with defense industry representatives. It was found that submission of multiple proposals by major subcontractors did not appear a frequent occurrence. Subcontractors, however, who did submit multiple proposals found their efforts characterized by peak demands for technical talent and overhead funds.
