dc.description.abstractContractor estimating systems that produce reliable proposals are a key safeguard for the Government to obtain fair and reasonable contract prices for goods and services. Government Administrative Contracting Officers (ACO), with the help of the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA), are responsible for determining the adequacy of contractor's estimating systems. If a DCAA audit finds estimating systems deficiencies, the ACO may take several actions including disapproving the contractor's system, in part or in whole. The process of formal disapproval and deficiencies resolution is a series of contractor written responses, corrective action plans and ACO evaluations. This process can take years before a final determination is made. This thesis will focus on how the Procuring Contracting Officer (PCO) obtains the information about deficiencies or disapproval and what actions he/she takes to insure the Government is receiving a fair and reasonable price for the goods and services it buys.en_US
