The primary purpose of this thesis is to analyze the database of contract claims and Requests for Equitable Adjustment (REAs) experienced at the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) between January 1997 and December 1998 as a means to identify areas of potential improvement in management practices which could result in reduced numbers of claims being submitted. Areas of focus are on claims from NAVAIR Headquarters in Patuxent River, MD and from NAVIR's three warfare centers. This thesis segregates claims into seven categories according to the underlying basis of the claims and identifies patterns which are then used to help focus attention on problem areas. Finally, this thesis offers recommendations to NAVAIR officials of areas on which to focus and actions to take to reduce the number of claims submitted.
