dc.description.abstractThe focus of this research was to examine several critical factors attendent to the issues of energy conservation and efficiency in major systems acquisition as viewed by the U.S. Defense Aerospace Industry. These factors include energy conservation acquisition strategies, management programs and contingency plans. The research objectives were (1) to investigate how the Department of Defense (DOD) motivates Industry to conserve energy, (2) to examine Industry's views for conserving energy in the acquisition process and (3) to provide recommendations based upon Industry's views. The results of the research indicate that selected acquisition concepts such as Life Cycle Costing, Value Incentive Clauses, Specifications and Profit, in addition to management programs and contingency plans, can effectively motivate Industry to conserve energy. The study's major contribution is that it presents the candid views of Industry for DOD consideration. Recommendations are presented to increase DOD's emphasis and support of energy conservation and efficiency in the acquisition process.
