This thesis examines current recommendations and initiatives to streamline the Navy Field Contracting System and improve procurement support for naval shipyards. Specific recommendations from the Coopers & Lybrand shipyard study and Department of Defense and Navy initiatives which will have a positive and significant impact on shipyard procurement support are examined. Additionally, current shipyard requisition processing procedures are reviewed, which highlight the complexity of the system and factors involved in the requisitioning, ordering and receipt of material. Finally, this report explores personnel quality enhancement tools and automated procurement systems designed to improve the acquisition process.
