This theses studied the advancement of professionalism within the contracting work force and established a baseline of contracting terms that, when defined, will form a dictionary of contracting terminology. This theses is a part of an effort at both the Air Force Institute of Technology and Naval Postgraduate School to identify and define those terms to be included in the initial publication of a dictionary by the National Contract Management Association. This study had two main objectives first, to examine how further developing the contracting body of knowledge will enhance the professionalism of the contracting discipline and work force and second, to compile a master listing of candidate terms to be defined by associated research leading to the eventual publication of a dictionary. A master listing of terms, built using the comments and recommendations of selected experts in the contracting and education fields is the main product of this research effort.
