This thesis investigates the evolution and implementation of Office of Management and Budget Circular A-109, Major System Acquisition. The presentation begins with background material illustrating the evolution of acquisition principles incorporated in Circular A-109, particularly the recommendations contained in the Commission on Government Procurement. The policies of Circular A-109 to be followed by executive branch agencies in the acquisition of Major Systems are analyzed in detail as to content and interpretation. Three areas of major change to the Department of Defense and the Department of the Navy acquisition policies and procedures as a result of the implementation of Circular A-109 are presented. The Navys Shipyard Intermediate Range Combat System Program is examined as one of the first full-scale attempts to implement the Circular A-109 policies. Lessons learned from the initial implementation of Circular A-109 are described in the form of improvements to Major System Acquisition. Author
