This report presents the Contractor Financial Data Retrieval and Analysis System FINANDAS, a timesharing computer system to assist DoD financial analysts in evaluating the financial condition of a contractor or potential contractor. Its primary uses will be in procurement pre-award financial reviews, source selection, negotiation, post-award monitoring, and in analysis of contract finance policy. FINANDAS reports the annual and quarterly financial data included in the Compustat data bank for approximately 900 companies. It also provides extensive ratio and trend analysis of those data. The same analysis can be prepared with FINANDAS for companies not in the data bank if the data are entered by the user. A projection routine linked to the historical data is also part of the system. This report describes FINANDAS and its analytical output. Applications to DoD financial analysis also are described. A plan is presented for implementation. Appendices contain sample FINANDAS output, a description of the system components, analytical methodology used, and a selected bibliography.
