The purpose of this thesis is to identify and discuss the key preaward problems encountered in engineering support services contracts and how these problems might be avoided in order to improve the contracting process. The research was conducted by a review of directives and policy guidance, field interviews with Government and Defense Industry personnel, and visits with key individuals involved in source competition and selection initiatives. The intent of the study was to analyze source selection criteria, ascertain problems and issues encountered, and make recommendations that offer viable solutions to the contract award process. This study also recommends areas for future study that may provide insight into improving the engineering support services contracting process.
