Abstract:

This thesis was directed at identifying the effects of multiyear procurement MYP on the subcontractor competitive environment. Two separate questionnaires were utilized to elicit operational procedures and subjective opinions from a sample of U.S. Navy MYP prime contractors and their vendors associated with the multiyear contract. The responses from the prime contractors were not of sufficient detail to derive any generalized statements about the effects of MYP on their subcontracting activities. The subcontractor surveys indicated a strong consensus of opinion that their current position as a subcontractor created a definite advantage for their firm at contract resolicitation. The perceived negative effects of multiyear procurement are on the subcontractors who have to wait for up to five years to recompete for that segment of business.
