Abstract:

This Thesis investigates the extent to which Public versus Private Competition has been integrated into the Naval Aviation Depots and evaluates the effectiveness of that implementation. This study describes the initial implementation of Public versus Private competition and analyzes early program results based on General Accounting Office Reports, internal Navy Audits, and Special Procurement Management Reviews. Following this background analysis, this study focuses on more recent evaluations of the competition program from a variety of industry and Government perspectives. These differing views and philosophies regarding how competition should be managed, suggests that there is a need for a Department of Defense-wide policy regarding Public versus Private competition. The Navys current policy, as well as the policies of other Services, are evaluated against such criteria as industrial base considerations, budgetary constraints, and political reality. The study concludes that a Department of Defense policy which embraces the Naval Aviation Depot Industrial Strategy is required for the long term health of both the Government depots and the competing aerospace industry.
