Abstract
In recent years government agencies have become increasingly reliant on the use of automatic data processing equipment for accomplishing their daily tasks. Without this equipment most agencies, including the Navy, would not be able to function. As spending on automatic data proce ssing equipment escalated at rapid rates, various rules and regulations were published by agencies in an attempt to ensure the effective management of this equipment. These rules often conflict v/ith each other and often hinder activities trying to accomplish their missions. This thesis will examine these rules and their affect on the Na^/y's automatic data processing equipment acquisition system. An attempt will be made to determine changes which the Navy can make to improve the system and make it more responsive to the user's needs. The study will focus on both the approval and the contracting portions of the acquisition cycle.
