The purpose of this research project is two-fold to explore the development and progression of the Navys Green Procurement Program GPP and then to assess Navy organizations degree of success with incorporating GPPs into their installation procurement processes. This project provides an account of the federal policies and guidance regarding green procurement and the salient parts of the Federal Acquisition Regulation FAR, the framework through which any possible GPP policy would be set. As we surveyed the Navy installations progress toward a more energy-efficient and resource-conscious procurement process, we measured that progress by the goals and metrics outlined in the Department of Defenses DOD GPP instruction. The green procurement process was measured by integrating the Contract Management Maturity Model CMMM, which describes a procurement agencys level of development across the six phases of the Contract Management Process CMP framework. The CMP divides the procurement process into six major phases procurement planning, solicitation planning, solicitation, source selection, contract administration, and contract closeout or termination. While previous applications of the CMMM focused on broader aspects of buying commands, our questions and diagnosis of Navy installation organizations were specifically focused through a lens of green procurement and energy efficiency. Our results show that Department of Navy procurement personnel have only a basic level of contract management maturity in green procurement.
