dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the Federal Government's decision to shift from almost total reliance on Government Specifications and Standards to a greater reliance on commercial off-the-shelf products and commercial specifications and / standards. The policy is analyzed from a Department of Defense perspective, with special emphasis placed upon the impact that the policy will have on competition, pricing, quality and the small business community. The conclusion is that the "Buy Commercial" policy will have a positive effect on competition and pri,cing without sacrificing any of the essentials of quality. The effects on the small business community overall will be positive, in that more smali firms will be encouraged to compete for Government contracts. For those small businesses however, that are heavily involved in producing products to meet Government specifications and standards the policy may spell financial disaster unless the Federal Government renders special consideration and assistance to them.en_US
