Abstract:

In view of a shrinking defense budget, there will likely be an increase in the number of CostSchedule Status Report CSSR managed contracts. Thus, it is imperative that the DoD non-major system project manager understand how to integrate performance measurement information and analysis into responsible management decision making. This thesis will focus on what the DoD non-system project manager should know to accomplish this by providing a comprehensive look at the CostSchedule Status Report, its implementation, and report analysis. The thesis will also discuss the Navy A-12 Avenger Aircraft Program termination affect on the CSSR environment by presenting and analyzing recent initiatives taken to improve performance management, discussing lessons learned, and providing the researchers recommendations for future initiatives. Finally, this thesis will analyze proposed CSSR Joint Guide revisions and provide recommendations for CSSR improvement.
