Early Predictive Indicators of Contractor Performance: A Data Analytic Approach
A recurring challenge to successful acquisition program execution is poor contractor performance. The DeputyAssistant Secretary for Acquisition Integration, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition,Technology, and Logistics (SAF/AQX) asked RAND Project AIR FORCE to develop and prototype data-analyticmethods on a variety of disparate and disjointed government and external data sources to identify potentialexecution performance and relative contractor performance risks earlier than would be typically reportedvia traditional methods. In this report, the authors discuss initial insights and approaches in exploring andprototyping these methods. Subsequent work and further development are ongoing.
