dc.description.abstractThis thesis is an initial attempt to develop a procurement task classification scheme. The paper begins with a theoretical framework highlighting current taxonomic issues and practices. The development of the 169 Federal Acquisition Institute/Acquisition Enhancement Study (ACE II) Program procurement task statements used in this paper is then reviewed. From the objectives of this study and the nature of the procurement task statements, criteria are developed to select an existing task classification scheme. The Berliner, Angell, and Shearer classification scheme was selected. An objective procedure was developed by the researcher to classify the behaviors of the procurement task statements in accordance with the Berliner classification scheme. The procedure through use, was found to be almost entirely subjective. Due to the potential benefits of the procurement task classification scheme and activity hierarchy, the researcher concludes that it is in the best interests of procurement personnel and the procurement process to continue taxonomic research to validate the procurement task classification scheme and activity hierarchy.en_US
