Abstract:

Defense Contract Management Commands DCMC are responsible for the administration of the contracts let by the Department of Defense DoD. DoD has the largest acquisition budget in the Federal Government. As such, DCMCs are extremely busy. With an increasing workload and a decreasing defense budget, more is being asked of the Government employee at a DCMC than ever before. The backlog of work and the host of changes in the way DoD is re-engineering its practices make it very difficult for a contract administrator to determine whom he or she is dealing with in the commercial sector. This Analysis was designed to find out whom it is that DoD does business with and determine what improvements to our business relationship can be found by studying the demographics of the customer. Two hundred six contractors chose to participate in the study, which provided a glimpse into the characteristics of one DCMC region.
