Abstract:

The role of subcontractors is significant in the process of acquiring major defense systems. With over 50 percent of defense funds tied up in subcontracts, the Government has been seeking ways to increase its methods for increased surveillance over subcontractor operations without destroying the contractual relationship between the prime contractor and its sub. This case study parallels an actual situation which took place within a program office. It is designed to surface some major factors concerning the Government and the subcontractor. The major areas of consideration are privity of contract, associate contracting, price escalation and its effect on a subcontract, default procedures, logistical considerations, prime contractor management responsibilities, flow-down problems and recent trends.
