This study assesses the process capabilities and competencies of Air Force Material Command's (AFMC) Ogden Air LogisticsCenter (OO-ALC), Contracting Directorate at Hill AFB, UT. This project is conducted with the sponsorship and assistance of the Acquisition Research Program. The assessment uses a cross-sectional questionnaire covering contracting processes and procedure. The assessment spans five units and delves into six different key contracting process areas. The purpose of this study is to analyze the OO-ALC's contracting processes and procedures to better establish a baseline for contract management maturity. This model, in conjunction with the Contract Management Maturity Assessment Tool (CMMAT), is used to gain information on potential areas of weakness and how to leverage those with strengths. Additionally, this study produces an analysis of the ethical culture currently present in the OO-ALC through the administration of an ethics questionnaire. In these times of significant transformation, it is critical to have mature contracting processes and procedures in place to ensure continuity and constant improvement throughout the organization as well as high ethical standards.
