This thesis is a continuation of research initiated by LCDR Daniel Ryan, SC, USN to establish a basis for defining words and terms used in the field of contracting. As in LCDR Ryan's thesis, this work used the methodology of selecting 25 terms for synthesis, surveying a selected group of National Contract Management Association (NCMA) Fellows for input into present definitions used in the contracting field, and synthesizing final definitions from the Fellows' input. Their feedback was used to arrive at an acceptable definition of the words and terms offered. Concurrent research in this area is being conducted by students at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California and the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio. This effort is being coordinated under the sanction of the NCMA.
