The Contract Management Maturity Model (CMMM) is a proven tool for contract management process analysis across all phases of the acquisition process. This includes procurement planning, solicitation planning, solicitation, source selection, contract administration, and contract closeout. We intend to use the Contract Management Maturity Assessment Tool (CMMAT) to apply the CMMM to the Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC) and the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center Wright-Patterson (AFLCMCWP) Contract Management processes. The SMC is headquartered at Los Angeles Air Force Base, California, and the AFLCMCWP is at WrightPatterson Air Force Base, Ohio. The primary purpose of this research is to analyze the SMC and the AFLCMCWP contracting processes, to identify key process area strengths and weaknesses, to discuss examples of contract management process tools, and to make recommendations for improvements if necessary. The results will provide the SMC and the AFLCMCWP a snapshot of the maturity level of their contracting processes, allowing them to identify the unique challenges that they are facing and provide an assessment tool to effectively engage and overcome these challenges and potentially improve the organizations contracting process.
