Concerns exist among field level commercial activities (CA) program managers. This poses a threat to proper implementation of the CA program. The concerns are manifested in a poorly manager command CA program. This study examines the allegations of bias in CA program policy structure towards the elimination of federal employees from Department of Defense commercial activities. The feasibility of a federal incentive system to improve overall program efficiency and management is discussed. Other areas of interest addressed are individual role perceptions and responsibilities; OPNAV relationships; and the mechanics of program operations. The study concludes that the Navy's CA policy needs to provide a greater degree of equity in its treatment of both the federal managers and the affected civilian employees in CA activities.
