dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the implementation of the Process Oriented Contract Administration Services (PROCAS) program at Magnavox Electronic Systems Company in Fort Wayne, Indiana, one of the seven pilot sites for the program. PROCAS is a Defense Contract Management Command (DCMC) initiative designed to apply the tools of total quality management, including cross-functional teaming, continuous process improvement, and empowerment, to the contract administration process. PROCAS supports DCMC's performance based management philosophy, which strives to allocate resources based on assessed contractor risk. The study describes the development, objectives, and components of the PROCAS program. Implementation of PROCAS at Magnavox is analyzed to determine the factors that contributed to the success of the initiative. Barriers to implementation and problems with the implementation are identified and discussed. The benefits of PROCAS for both the Government and Magnavox are analyzed. The study concludes that the implementation was successful, and recommends continuing support of PROCAS by DCMC. Potential areas for expansion of the PROCAS philosophy are identified. The study shows the value of PROCAS in facilitating a total quality transformation of an organization, and in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of Government contract administration.en_US
