This thesis is a limited determination of the most cost effective method of acquiring Defense Logistics Agency DLA cognizance initial outfitting material for new construction ships. The study is restricted to Contractor Furnished Material CFM required to support Contractor Furnished Equipment CFE contained in the Hull, Mechanical, Electrical, Ordnance and Electronics HMEO and E Coordinated Shipboard Allowance List COSAL. Three alternative methods of procuring the material are analyzed for cost effectiveness 1 the shipbuilder procures the material commercially, 2 the shipbuilder is allowed access to the Federal Supply System FSS and requisitions the material, 3 the Naval Supervising Activity NSA requisitions the material from the FSS in which case it becomes Government Furnished Material GFM. Material availability using each of the alternatives is also examined.
