This thesis examines and analyzes the unique aspects of environmental remediation and the different contracting methods used by the DoD to outsource its environmental contracting needs. The analysis was conducted using archival and opinion research to define the unique qualities associated with environmental remediation and the individual Services's contracting methods. The research revealed that legislative requirements are numerous and a majority of the environmental remediation requirements are unclear in nature. The Navy's choice of the Comprehensive Long-Term Environmental Action Navy (CLEAN) and the Remedial Action Contract (RAC) and the Army's choice of the Total Environmental Remediation Contract (TERC) are compared and evaluated. This evaluation looks at the advantages and disadvantages in their application. The researcher's analysis of the data determined that the Army's TERC contract is the more efficient environmental contracting method. With the ultimate objective of providing an environmental contracting method that would enhance an integrated single face to industry it is recommended that the Army's TERC contracting method be adopted for use throughout the DoD.
