Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to develop and test a hypertext version of the Certified Professional Contracts Manager Candidates Workbook and Supplements. A literature review was conducted on two distinct subject areas. The first area includes a review of the findings of six commissions on professionalism of acquisition personnel, initiatives of the Office of Personnel Management, the Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act, and the National Contract Management Association. The discussion of professionalism in contracting establishes the relevance of products like the hypertext workbook completed as a result of this research. The second area is a review of the history of hypertext, applicable definitions, application schemes, and system design. Through a development effort that followed five objectives, a complete hypertext workbook was designed and tested. The results of the questionnaire answered by ten graduate students revealed that the hypertext workbook was easy to install, learn and use.
