The Impact of Statutory and Regulatory Imperatives to Include Energy Considerations in Acquisition Programs
MetadataShow full item record
This research investigated the impact of statutory and regulatory imperatives to include energy considerations in acquisition programs. Specifically, it explores whether individual acquisition programs are implementing energy-related key performance parameters (KPPs). If services and individual acquisition programs are implementing energy-related KPPs, the study seeks to describe how they are implementing energy-related KPPs, and to identify the impacts of energy-related KPPs in acquisition programs. It explores the development and progression of the Navy's Green Procurement Program (GPP) and then assesses the Navy organizations' degree of success with incorporating GPPs into their installation procurement processes. As we surveyed a Navy installation's progress toward a more energy-efficient and resource-conscious procurement process, we measured that progress by the goals and metrics outlined in the Department of Defense's (DOD's) GPP instruction. The green procurement process was measured by integrating the Contract Management Maturity Model (CMMM), which describes a procurement agency's level of development across the six phases of the Contract Management Process (CMP) framework. The CMP divides the procurement process into six major phases: procurement planning, solicitation planning, solicitation, source selection, contract administration, and contract closeout or termination. While previous applications of the CMMM focused on broader aspects of buying commands, our questions and diagnosis of Navy installation organizations were specifically focused through a lens of green procurement and energy efficiency. Our results show that Department of Navy procurement personnel have only a "basic level"of contract management maturity in green procurement.
