Abstract:

The merits of life cycle costing LCC as a method of procurement by the Departments of Defense and Army are noted. The logic of LCC is appealing, but after years of effort, only a handful of LCC contracts have been awarded by the Army. The study investigates the current status of LCC procurement in the Army. The underlying deterrents responsible for the retardation of the LCC program are identified and analyzed. General and specific recommendations are presented. Author
