Abstract:

One of the mandatory sources of supply for U.S. Government procurement requirements is the Federal Prison Industries, Inc. FPI. Established by the U.S. Congress in 1934 under authority of the Prison Made Supplies Act, Title 18, USC, 4121-4129, the Federal Prison Industries, Inc. has become a supplier of a wide range of goods and services for Federal Government agencies. Initial research into the attitudes and opinions of Department of the Navy DoN field contracting activities toward FPI revealed that many misunderstandings exist and that relations between DoN and FPI could be improved. This study presented some of the problems that exist between DoN and FPI, why they exist, and some recommendations for improvement of those relations.
