Abstract:

The purposes of this reconnaissance study were to gain an insight into contractors bid and proposal B and P activities, to examine the impact of Government policies on those activities, and to make recommendations concerning the desirability of additional study in this area. The reconnaissance revealed that, on the whole, there are not the serious problems in contractors B and P activity which the amount of controversy in the area would suggest. The report discusses Government constraints on contractor B and P activity, such as negotiated cost ceilings and the requirement that such activity have potential military relevancy. The report also treats contractors B and P policies, rationale, and criteria, as they influence the formulation of B and P budgets, proposals for Government versus commercial work, and specific bid decisions.
