Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis was to continue the research effort of establishing a baseline of contracting terms which was initiated by Lieutenant Commander Daniel L. Ryan. By accomplishing a thorough literature review, 51 international contracting terms and their existing definitions were gathered and analyzed. The results from the initial analysis were compiled and formed the basis of the draft mail questionnaires which were sent to a panel of experts in the international acquisitions field for feedback. Likert scale ratings and written comments from the panel of experts from the draft survey were used to improve our data collecting instrument. The revised survey as then sent to a random sample of qualified National Contract Management Association Certified Professional Contract Managers for feedback. The format for the finalized survey was the same as the draft survey. The feedback from the actual survey was used to revise the proposed definitions which resulted from the test survey. These revisions attempt to mirror the actual use of the 51 terms. Contracting, Procurement, Contract terminology, Contracting management, Contract administration
