This thesis is the initial effort to establish a universal dictionary of acquisition and contracting terminology. As 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 fifty terms selected for this thesis were taken from the dictionary of acquisition and contracting terms which is maintained through thesis research conducted within the National Contract Management Association. This work differs from previous research in that it takes the terms from those efforts and attempts to attain, through questionnaire results from four national acquisition and contracting professional associations, a general consensus for commonly held terminology. This research is the initial effort conducted by students at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California.
