The primary purpose of this thesis is to provide a case analysis of the contract closeout process at DCMC Lockheed Martin (LM). The contract closeout policies and procedures at DCMC Headquarters are analyzed to develop a basis of comparison for DCMC LM. Secondary objectives include analysis of factors affecting untimely contract closeout, both DCMC-wide and at DCMC LM, and comparison of metrics results to analyze DCMC LM's progress in contract closeout. The current DCMC LM initiatives leading to increased contract closeout efficiency are discussed, and alternative closeout metrics are investigated. Finally, recommendations are made on the applicability of the DCMC LM initiatives to other organizations throughout DCMC.
