dc.description.abstractMandated reduction of natural resources consumed by U.S. Federal Facilities hasforced agencies to reconsider how facilities are acquired. The process for acquiringfederal facilities is guided by laws, executive orders, policies and regulations. While thisguidance is intended to create an open and competitive process to achieve lowest cost orbest value, conflicts among traditional acquisition processes and new law requirementsare emerging. To meet the new requirements, laws must be implemented througheffective policy. For over 6 years, the Navy has been acquiring sustainably designedfacilities and has recently set sustainable development policy guidelines. To meet thesenew sustainable development goals, facility acquisition processes must reflect currentpolicy mandates. In this thesis, numerous sustainable acquisition processes are evaluated. Selectedprocesses occurring primarily in the Planning and Programming phases of a constructionproject are emphasized and represent common practices used by other governmentalagencies. Through interviews and case study research, a set of feasible actions aimed to helpNA VF AC achieve sustainable development goals are outlined. This thesis providesprocess improvement recommendations for Naval Facilities Engineering Command.en_US
