dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this research was to investigate the role of the nongovernment standards setting bodies and the Department of Defense in the standards setting process, and; current DoD initiatives to streamline the acquisition process via more efficient selection and application of standards and specifications. Discussions and analyses were conducted in the areas of private standards setting organizations, motives for developing and using standards, various types of standards, and some problems encountered regarding the use or non-use of standards. Attention was focused on Department of Defense (DoD) policies and procedures for the development and adoption of standards and specifications and methods of interacting with nongovernment standards setting organizations. Specific examples were discussed regarding specification and standardization problems in the DoD followed by review of the DoD's Streamlining Initiative. Conclusions reached were: Methods used by the DoD to develop, write, and adopt standards and specifications were undecipherable from current literature; DoD specifications and standards are applied in a haphazard manner, and; The Streamlining Initiative is a successful step in solving some of the DoD's problems with overspecification.
