This Joint Applied Project assesses the maturity levels of the contracting processes capabilities at the Joint Munitions and Lethality (JMandL) Contracting Center, located at Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey by applying the Contract Management Maturity Model (CMMM). The JMandL Contracting Center is one of the Army's six major contracting commands under the Army Contracting Command As a metric to measure the results of the CMMM, an analysis of the results of recent Procurement Management Reviews has been completed to determine whether the outcomes are consistent with the finding of the CMMM. Additionally, survey participants have been questioned to determine their opinions as to the reasons for reported strengths and weaknesses, as well as, suggested methodologies for improvement. Finally, these responses have been evaluated to provide opportunities to leverage best practices and knowledge sharing at both the JMandL Contracting Center and potentially with other centers within the Army Contracting Command. The successful application of the assessment tool and appropriate analysis provides an effective way to identify unique challenges and expose opportunities to improve the organization's contracting processes.
