In view of a shrinking defense budget, there will likely be an increase in the number of Cost/Schedule Status Report (C/SSR) managed contracts. Thus it is imperative that the DoD non-major system project manager understand how to integrate performance measurement information and analysis into responsible management decision making. This thesis will focus on what the DoD non-major system project manager should know to accomplish this by providing a comprehensive look at the Cost/Schedule Status Report, its implementation, and report analysis. The thesis will also discuss the Navy A-12 Avenger Aircraft Program termination effect on the A/SSR environment by presenting and analyzing recent initiative taken to improve performance management, discussing "lessons learned", and providing the researcher's recommendations for future initiatives. Finally, this thesis will analyze proposed C/SSR Joint Guide revisions and provide recommendations for C/SSR improvement.
