The purpose of this thesis is to examine the factors that may increase or decrease the cost that the Government specifically the Air Force pays for reprocurement data and to determine how much the Air Force should pay for this reprocurement data. This is the data that enables the Air Force to competitively buy spare parts after a major system becomes operational. A conceptual model is presented to assist procuring contracting officers to determine those actions that should be taken to minimize the amount the Government pays for reprocurement data throughout the life of the contract. The authors contend that the cost of data, in addition to development and production costs, is affected by rights to the data, government format requirements, and techniques of ordering data from the contractor. Six major system contracts were examined in an attempt to verify these contentions. Modified author abstract
