Abstract
This thesis is a continuation of research initiated by Lieutenant Commander Daniel F. Ryan, SC , USN to establish a basis for defining words and terms used in the field of contracting. The 20 terms defined in this thesis were selected from a master list of contracting/procurement terms compiled by previous researchers. The methodology used to reach a consensus definition was to: (1) synthesize a definition from current published sources, (2) validate these definitions through an opinion survey of a selected group of contracting professionals, and (3) finalize definitions based on a consensus from all sources. Students at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA and The Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, OH are conducting concurrent research on this topic.
