dc.description.abstractThis thesis studied the ethics programs, practices, and policies of both Government and non-Government contractors. The environment in which these programs, practices, and policies have been developed is presented. Academic attitudes are provided regarding the necessity for and effectiveness of ethics legislation directed toward Government contractors. The objective of this study was to identify both similarities and differences between Government and non- Government contractor ethics programs, practices, and policies, and to determine whether or not unique legislation directed toward Government contractors makes a difference in the content of ethics policy documents. A survey was developed and used for ranking and analysis of primary areas of ethical interest to contractors. The thesis concludes that the ethics policies of Government and non-Government contractors are almost identical. While rankings of the relative importance of individual ethical concerns varies, the overall content of all programs is the same. Further, academicians are in disagreement as to the need for unique ethics standards and legislation for Government contractors as opposed to non- Government contractors. The thesis provides alternatives to efforts to legislate the content of contractors' ethics programs.
