Abstract
This research examined the procuring contracting officer's (PCO) role in implementing and administering Cost/Schedule Control Systems Criteria (C/SCSC) within the Department of Defense. The purpose of this study was to develop a practical guide to C/SCSC for the PCO to use as a ready reference while on the job or in a training environment. As such, some germane topics addressed in this thesis include objectives of C/SCSC, C/SCSC related items of DOD solicitations, evaluation of the contractor's C/SCSC plan or program during source selection, C/SCSC validation and compliance reviews, application of cost and schedule performance data, and current initiatives for improvement of C/SCSC. The underlying goals of this thesis was to make the PCO aware of the importance of reliable cost and schedule performance data to the success of a major acquisition program, and the vital role that (s)he plays in assuring that the contractor's integrated management system generates it.
