Abstract:

This thesis analyzes the contract modifications on 135 Military Construction MILCON projects administered by the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Command NAVFAC. Data for this study came from projects from 9 of the 10 Engineering Field Divisions EFD sEngineering Field Activities EFA s that makeup the NAVFAC organization. Based on the results of the analysis observations were made regarding the performance of the EFDEFAs in major areas such as claims, value engineering, scope changes and A-E liability modifications. Major differences between the performance of the individual EFDEFAs and NAVFAC as a whole are also addressed. Lastly, the relationship between the Facility Category Code of the proposed structure or building and the projects modification rate is analyzed. The criteria used for the comparative analysis of the EFDEFAs was modification reason code assigned, trade affected by the modification, modification cost and the projects modification rate. Findings and conclusions are presented based on the results of the analysis. MM
