Abstract:

This report examines the Army, Navy and Air Force instructions that implement the provisions of DOD Directive 5000.1. The relationships that exist between the Program Manager and his respective Contracting Officer in each Service as a result of this DOD Directive are emphasized with the primary emphasis being placed on the Navys system. Based on conclusions reached, it is recommended that the directive be revised to place ultimate responsibility in the hands of the Program Manager for major weapons system acquisition as intended by the intent of DODD 5000.1.
