Abstract:

This thesis proposes the use of several project and portfolio tools that demonstrate the advantages of integrated delivery and finance methods. It also depicts several strategic frameworks by which to shape internal organization and procurement structure in order to attract innovative private sector forces. Two decision support tools were used to analyze Navy housing portfolios at eight installations. First, solicitations, operations and maintenance budget histories, and project programs were collected. This information was assembled in CHOICES decision support software to analyze portfolio cash flows for varying configurations of delivery and finance methods. Next, several construction contract method selection tools were used to illustrate how the same bases could narrow choice of delivery methods based on specific regional, project and market drivers. This process illustrated several plausible delivery types for specific projects in lieu of relying upon predetermined methods. Several strategic frameworks were outlined and used to analyze the Naval Facilities and Engineering Commands NAVFAC internal structure and its housing procurement and sustainment strategies. First, the case studies were reviewed in light of fundamental principles for public procurement strategy. Results of this assessment call for focus on increasing competition and innovation, maintaining transparency and leveraging private capital. Next, basic frameworks of competitive private sector strategies were used to analyze NAVFACs organizational and acquisition structures. This process yielded several proposals that would align organization and solicitation configurations to create more attractive infrastructure markets for private industry.
