The Contractor Risk Assessment Guide Program (CRAG) was developed in 1988 in response to a primary recommendation of the President's Blue Ribbon Panel on Defense Management that the Government promote contractor self- governance as a means to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of Government oversight. This thesis reviews the background leading to the development of the CRAG program and reviews the individual Chapters of the CRAG program. The objectives of the thesis are to assess the achievement of the goals of the CRAG program since its implementation, identify any deficiencies in the CRAG as it exists, make recommendations for modification of the program and provide a medium for Government and defense industry personnel to express their opinions on the relative success of the CRAG. The research resulted in the conclusion that the CRAG has met its goals of improving contractor internal control systems and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of Government oversight efforts. The research also resulted in recommendations by the researcher of methods to enhance promotion of the CRAG and its benefits to the defense industry.
