The primary objective of this thesis was to determine the feasibility of modifying the Productive Unit Resourcing (PUR) model to accurately reflect contract administration functions performed at the Navy Field Contracting Activities (NFCAs). Data concerning contract administration functions were collected from NFCAs and analyzed in three ways: by the percent of contracts affected, the number of labor hours expended per contract, and the percent of the total contract administration expended per function. the analysis revealed that NFCAs applied subjective interpretations to the contract functions, and did not have a credible historical database from which the gather their data. Large deviation factors between the NFCAs were documented. From the data collected, contract administration functions could not be quantified or standardized. It is currently not feasible to modify the PUR model in a manner that would accurately reflect the contract administration functions performed at NFCAs.
