During the Carter Administration the Office of Management and Budget Circular A-7 6 was brought back as an important program to reduce Government spending. This emphasis increased the number of service contracts within the Department of the Navy. This thesis looks at the administration of installation support service contracts in the Department of the Navy by dividing administration into three areas. They are: contract type and incentives, education and training of Government personnel, and the tasks involved in administration. It recommends that the present emphasis on fixed-price contracts continues, but that the Government use negotiations instead of sealed bids and contractors obtain performance bonds. Additionally, it reinforces the importance of proper preparation of the statement of work, and recommends changes to the Government education and training programs.
