Secretary of Defense William Cohen announced on November 10, 1997 the Defense Reform Initiative (DRI) which essentially outlines a plan to mirror those business practices that American industry has successfully used to become leaner, more flexible and more competitive. The DRI calls for a reduction in DoD infrastructure by means of subjecting the positions of 120,000 civil-service personnel performing non-inherently Governmental functions to the competitive A- 76 process with private firms and other Government agencies during the next five years. The Defense Contract Management Command (DCMC) which provides central contract administration services to DoD customers, has not historically pursued outsourcing as a means to reduce costs. This thesis examines outsourcing through the A-76 process, its advantages, disadvantages and its feasibility, applicability and current use at DCMC
