Abstract:

Government contracting personnel have had a history of accepting a procurement procedure which appeared to be successful in past program and erroneously applying those same procedures to new and different programs. The F- 15 contract contains some new and some uniquely applied standard contract clauses. These clauses were described, analyzed, and presented independently in the thesis. After the independent study of the clauses, a summary of the interrelatedness of these clauses was presented. The authors interpretation of what external factors influenced the F-15 contract and how the F-15 contract philosophy evolved are also presented. The authors have made recommendations which apply to the future use of the F-15 contract clauses.
