The United States Naval Facilities Engineering Command awarded over 1-billion dollars in construction contracts in 1990 and is expected to increase that figure in 1991. These contracts will be awarded all over the world. They will range in size from five thousand dollar playgrounds to hundred million dollar buildings. The objective of this paper is to develop a guide that will allow contractors to make a smooth transition from contracting with other sources into contracting with the United States Navy. It will cover various areas that often lead to difficulties for contractors unfamiliar with Navy construction contracting. Also the guide will provide an overview of the entire contracting experience from reading the advertisement for the job, to the warranty period after construction. It should be understood that the information presented in this guide applies to the most common type of construction contract used by the Navy - fixed price/lump sum.
