The purpose of this research effort was to test and evaluate a proposed Management Information System indicator. The indicator was proposed by the Air Force Logistics Command for use of contractor performance. This research includes 1 the plan for the overall evaluation, 2 the tests to assure validity of the input data, and 3 procedures, criteria, and recommendation for selection of the proposed indicator. The prroposed indicator of contractor delivery performance was tested for relevance by comparing it to the existing measurement of delivery delinquencies. In the course of the research, it was discovered that the new indicator would provide little additional information of use to managers. Additionally, it was found that Purchase Request need dates may not be true indicators of the needs of the Air Force that contractors tend to deliver on their own schedules, regardless of contract requirements and that post-award contractual action by the Government appear to be ineffective.
