Abstract:

The volume presents the results of the study which was divided into the following three interrelated subtasks 1 An analytical and empirical examination of cost-quantity relationships with the objective of laying the framework for other parts of the study and attempting to identify factors other than cumulative units that might be incorporated in the progress curve 2 an examination of competitive procurements with the objective of examining quantitatively the effect of competition on selling price and 3 a comparison of prices paid for similar military and commercial equipment with the objective of testing quantitatively the hypothesis that commercial procurement practices are superior to military procurement practices and that, as a result, commercial equipment costs less than similar military equipment. The appendices contain supporting data and analyses.
