This thesis is a limited determination of the most cost effective method of acquiring Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) cognizance initial outfitting material for new construction ships. The study is restricted to Contractor Furnished Material (CFM) required to support Contractor Furnished Equipment (CFE) contained in the Hull, Mechanical, Electrical, Ordnance and Electronics (HMEO&E) Coordinated Shipboard Allowance List (COSAL). Three alternative methods of procuring the material are analyzed for cost effectiveness: (1) the shipbuilder procures the material commercially, (2) the shipbuilder is allowed access to the Federal Supply System (FSS) and requisitions the material, (3) the Naval Supervising Agency (NSA) requisitions the material from the FSS in which case it becomes Government Furnished Material (GFM). Material availability using each of the alternatives is also examined.
