This theses explores training weaknesses and requirements of civilian (GS-1105 series) mid-level personnel in the Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) small purchase arena. The purpose of the study is to identify the training inadequacies and to recommend alternative methods and forums to evaluate and correct training shortcomings. The theses analyzes informal training plans and training methods of the Naval Supply Centers. In addition, formal small purchase mid-level GS-1105 training is examined. To establish a baseline for the research, the existing training documents in this area were evaluated to determine their currency, completeness, and effectiveness. The theses proposes a revision and expansion to the Small Purchasing Professional Development: Training Course for Mid-Career Personnel as one means to fill training shortfalls.
