Contract negotiations have been an area in the acquisition process where there has been much opportunity for compromise and resulting ethical dilemmas. The area of this research concerns the subject of ethical practices for both Government and industry in contract negotiations. It is not right to legislate ethics, yet it is necessary to provide a model that can address ethical practices and resulting dilemmas that the contract negotiator is faced with. This thesis addresses the policies, procedures, and practices resulting from the subject of ethics in contract negotiations. It also develops a model of essential elements for practice as derived from analysis of requirements, regulations, and the current ethics culture of contract negotiations.
