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. The twenty terms selected for this thesis were synthesized from collected definitions, Government regulations and contracting literature and reviewed once by National Contract Management Association Fellows in previous research efforts. This work differs from previous research in that it takes the terms from those efforts which generated significant diversity and refines them using the Delphi Technique. This research is a joint effort conducted by students at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, and the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio.
