Abstract
The Navy Field Contracting System (NFCS) recently began a program of funding its activities based upon the productive units completed. Due to this emphasis on quantity of output, there was concern that the quality of the product would suffer. This research studies the effect of Productive Unit Resourcing (PUR) on the quality of contracts produced by the Navy Field Contracting System. In doing so it examines the current quality practices in the NFCS as well as some past and present practices within the Air Force. These findings are presented along with some of the current ideas found in the commercial sector concerning achieving quality. A program for achieving quality in the NFCS is also proposed.
