This thesis has identified the primary regulatory and administrative requirements related to the acquisition of major automated information systems (AIS) . In addition, case analysis was performed on current ADP projects to evaluate the application of acquisition directives and to obtain pertinent cost data for model development. A baseline model was created from available data using the Interactive Financial Flaming System (IFPS) . This model delineates -he cost elements germane to the approval and acquisition phases of the life cycle management process. This concluded the initial phase of an effort towards a comparison of government and private sector acquisition processes. Further analysis of these acquisition processes is recommended for continued model refinement, including decision support system applications.
