Abstract:

John DelGreco starts each morning at 0600 at the Defense Contract Management Agency DCMA Raytheon Tewksbury Contract Management Office CMO. He s been doing it a while. January 2014 represented the start of his 27th year as a contract pricecost analyst at DCMA. Over the course of his career, he has seen many changes within the agency and the pricing career field. In the early 1990s, with mandatory personnel reductions, the pricing function began its slow move away from DCMA and toward the buying commands. When DelGreco first started at DCMA, 12 pricecost analysts and six cost monitors assigned to the CMO were performing pricing work. By 2008, only two pricecost analysts remained at the CMO. In April 2009, however, this was all set to change as Ashton Carter was appointed the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics.
