This thesis examines and analyzes the unique aspects of environmental remediation and the different contracting methods used by the DoD to outsource its environmental contracting needs. The analysis was conducted using archival and opinion research to define the unique qualities associated with environmental remediation and the individual Servicess contracting methods. The research revealed that legislative requirements are numerous and a majority of the environmental remediation requirements are unclear in nature. The Navys choice of the Comprehensive Long-Term Environmental Action Navy CLEAN and the Remedial Action Contract RAC and the Armys choice of the Total Environmental Remediation Contract TERC are compared and evaluated. This evaluation looks at the advantages and disadvantages in their application. The researchers analysis of the data determined that the Armys TERC contract is the more efficient environmental contracting method. With the ultimate objective of providing an environmental contracting method that would enhance an integrated single face to industry it is recommended that the Armys TERC contracting method be adopted for use throughout the DoD.
