Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) the computer-to-computer or more specifically the application-to-application exchange of business data in a standard format. Achieving the large savings mandated by Defense Management Review Decision (DMRD) 941 requires integration of EDI capability into Navy automated procurement systems. This thesis examines the use of EDI in the U.S. Navy procurement function, as well as areas for expanded utilization of EDI, current barriers to implementation, and lessons learned while planning and implementing EDI initiatives. U.S. Navy EDI initiatives involve a wide range of projects in the procurement process. The initial targeted are the high volume found in the small purchase area, and delivery orders against established contracts. A major barrier to full use of EDI in U.S. Navy Contracting Activities is the legal and regulatory impediments, resulting from a lack of specific guidance in the Federal Acquisition Regulations. Contributing to the success of EDI are command involvement,. functional area participation, and networking among users.
