Abstract:

Recent research has proposed the transformation of contracting from a management art to a science. To this end, a description and classification of the subject matter has been undertaken and a model developed that classifies goods procured by the Federal Government. A great deal of effort has been given to validation of this model. The rudimentary model has been refined and purposes for its application have been presented. This thesis offers three potential applications and benefits of the previously developed taxonomical structure for classifying goods procured by the Federal Government. These potential applications are identification and utilization of commercial items, workload management and staffing. Taxonomy, Classification, Goods.
