This study was undertaken to delineate, analyze, and aluate the various relationships established between the vernment, prime contractors and subcontractors in the acquition of modern weapon systems within the Department of fense. Envisioned were the achievement of two primary objecves . First, to identify the relationships as currently tablished, as well as any significant problems created by sse relationships and second, to attempt to ascertain the pact of these relationships, and their inherent problems, the weapons acquisition process itself. Research methodology consisted of an extensive literature view along with personal interviews of key acquisition ficials within both Government and industry. While present relationships were found to be basically fective and efficient, problems and inequities were perceived rticularly by subcontractors and should be addressed. While s size and scope of this effort precluded a conclusive nding that present relationships, on the whole, impact gatively on the Federal acquisition process, evidence was and that inequities and problems inherent in present rela- Dnships have the potential for hindering the objectives of e weapons acquisition process and that certain remedial tions were both feasible and desirable.
