Abstract:

The Should Cost analysis technique of contract pricing, because of its integrated-skills approach to accomplish detailed cost analyses, requires the talents of highly qualified personnel in order to be cost-effective. The study reviews the personnel selection techniques commonly employed in business, and the personal characteristics normally considered in personnel selection. Observations are made regarding the applicability of these techniques and personal characteristics in selecting personnel for Army Materiel Command AMC Should Cost teams. The selection methods used to staff Should Cost teams in the past are then evaluated. The study concludes by offering guidelines for improving the process of identifying and selecting highly qualified personnel to perform Should Cost analyses.
