Approximately one in four Department of Defense production contracts are being carried in a delinquent status. These late deliveries have a value of several billion dollars, and eighty percent of the delinquent contracts are over ninety days late. The impact of these last deliveries affects many military organizations in a variety of ways. The causes of delinquency stem from actions of the Government and of the contractor. The Government attempts to use a number of incentives to motivate the contractor to provide timely delivery of the required items. It also utilizes a variety of procedures in an attempt to control and reduce the number of delinquent contracts. Yet a significant portion of the contracts are delinquent. The objective of this research effort was to provide a survey study of the delinquency problem, with a particular view of stimulating further in-depth research into its various aspects.
