The objectives of this research were to identify and discuss the background of current warranty policy and its application to the acquisition of spare parts within the Navy Field Contracting System, specifically the Navy Aviation Supply Office and the Navy Ships Parts Control Center. As a result of this research, the conclusions are as follows: 1) Navy policies on warranty development and implementation must be definitized, 2) Spare parts warranty form development should utilize the same decision process as used for weapon system warranties, 3) Weapon systems warranties ultimately drive the type of warranty coverage for spare parts, and 4) Pending a formalized administration and centralized data collection system, spare parts warranties should specify coverage for Materials and Workmanship defects, unless a more complex warranty is dictated by the weapon system program office.
