This thesis is a continuation of research initiated by LCDR Daniel Ryan, SC, USN to establish a basis for defining words and terms used in the field of contracting. The twenty terms selected for this thesis were synthesized from collected definitions, Government regulations and contracting literature and reviewed in some cases more than once by National Contract Management Association professionals in previous research efforts which lacked significant consensus and refines them using a Delphi Technique. This research is a joint effort conducted by students at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, and the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio.
