The purpose of this thesis is to research the history of the Corps SAM program, focusing on the issue of whether to maintain competition or to down select to a single contractor. An analysis is conducted to examine the down selection and whether the program risks of cost overrun, failure to meet schedule, and poor weapon performance can be averted without the use of continuous competition. This thesis concludes that down selection to one contractor provides more benefit to the program than maintaining competition throughout the acquisition process for the Corps SAM program.
