The purpose of this thesis is to determine if there are contracting techniques that can be employed to reduce procurement administrative leadtime PALT for the procurement of spare parts at the Navy Aviation Supply Office ASO. Findings were that implementation of the initiatives in the Competition in Contracting Act of 1984 and Section 908 of the FY87 DOD Authorization Act has resulted in increased PALT. Reasons for this increase in PALT include the establishment of a Competition Advocate processing of justifications and authorizations increased synopsis time in the Commerce Business Daily a reduced threshold for contractors certified cost or pricing data and missed requirement dates due to prospective pricing of BOA orders. The major conclusion is that ASO is using the appropriate contracting techniques for spares procurement. A spirited application of those techniques to streamline the procurement process may reduce PALT.
