Abstract:

The objective of this project is to research current pricing memorandums and determine whether the use of price analysis techniques and pricing memorandums can improve acquisition-pricing outcomes. The purpose of the research is to explore the efficacy of the governments current documentation of price analysis information. The intent is to diagnose what price analysis techniques are being utilized and documented in the contracting file, and to explore potential improvements. This analysis is based on a review of a sample size of 30 contract files and a personnel survey at a Navy contracting office.
