This thesis examines a potential application of using a previously developed taxonomical structure for classifying goods procured by the Federal Government to measure the productivity of Government buyers for evaluation purposes. A taxonomical approach has been employed to determine the key characteristics of goods that differentiate the amount of time and effort required to procure the good for the Federal Government. A productivity measurement model is developed based on weighted characteristics derived from utilizing a taxonomical approach.
