Abstract:

The purpose of this project is to identify and analyze Process Management and Audit Program PMAP results for Naval Facilities Command, Southwest NAVFAC SW. The goal is to identify reoccurring contract deficiencies and issues using the Six Phases of Contract Management Process as a guide to target areas for improvement, in order to provide a comprehensive process review, with recommendations for future contracting process improvements at NAVFAC SW. It will be to management s advantage to share these results with their acquisition workforces in order to help increase acquisition compliance and reduce the recurring findings, with the overall goal of reducing the exposure to risk. During this project, it was discovered that there are 14 recurring PMAP findings that need to be addressed. Suggestions are offered to help get these problems under control. It was also suggested that in 24 to 36 months, an NPS student conduct similar research to see whether there has been PMAP improvement, so that the work of contract process improvement will continue to go forward at NAVFAC SW.
