Abstract:

This research investigates the efficacy of applying formal decision analysis methods to the selection of the best contractor for defense systems acquisition. Specifically, Multiattribute Utility Theory MAUT and the Analytic Hierarchy Process AHP are applied to source selection within the United States Air Force. The source selection process is described. MAUT and AHP are applied to an actual Air Force source selection case study. We conclude the Air Force source selection process can benefit from the application of decision analysis.
