Abstract:

This study sought to understand and evaluate a management system currently being utilized by the Air Force Contract Management Division termed Contractor Management System Evaluation Program CMSEP which is used in evaluating prime contractor management systems and practices. Although CMSEP is unique to the Air Force, the author concludes that the program has significant merit and should be considered by other agencies within DOD that are involved with contract management of prime contractors. The program is designed to prevent adverse impact on cost, schedule or performance on government acquisitions caused by contractor management system deficiencies. The evolution of CMSEP provides important lessons learned in establishing and implementing a program of this magnitude. Described in this report are several problem areas that developed since the inception of the program that required andor require management attention and action.
