The purpose of this report is to define the criteria by which non-major acquisition programs are conducted within the Defense Industry and to summarize the current status of that process. The project was conducted through informal interviews with acquisition personnel within NAVAIR and the Naval Ordnance Station, Indian Head, Md., and through research of the current documentation that applies to both the major and non-major acquisition process. The results of the examination indicate that not much in the way of specific direction currently exists with regard to the acquisition and management of non-major systems within the Department of the Navy. The author concludes that there is a need for such documentation and a formal review process similar to that established for major programs, and recommends that the Navy establish formal review guidelines and appropriate documentation to better define the process of acquisition for non-major systems. The implications are that the Navys acquisition process can be greatly enhanced by the improved lines of communication and cooperation resulting from such action. Author
