Abstract:

This thesis explores the process of major systems acquisition in Britain and the United States. It describes the process of initiation and development of systems from the management viewpoint, and also the methods used by each government for control of the project and the contractor. The differences between the systems of the two countries are highlighted. Many differences are described, some of which are attributable to the geographic size or the resources of each country. Others are attributable to the fact that there are more than one way of operating efficiently, and finally, it is concluded that there are differences in which one country would benefit by heeding the practices of the other.
