Abstract:

The procurement research was based on the assumption that one of the principal keys to improving the process is understanding how original government cost estimates are produced. This is the point where fact and fiction must be separated in time to affect the decision-making process. The research questions were oriented to examine the current approaches, attitudes, and preferences of managers and practitioners of cost estimating and cost analysis within the Department of Defense DD and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA.
