This thesis is a continuation of research initiated by Lieutenant Commander Daniel F. Ryan, SC, USN to establish a basis for defining words and terms used in the field of contracting. Concurrent research in this area is being conducted by students at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA and the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, OH. The twenty five terms selected were taken from a master list of contracting terms developed by previous researchers. A synthesized definition was developed for each term from various published sources. The synthesized definitions were then scrutinized by a select group of contracting professionals. Their comments were then used to develop a revised definition based upon consensus.
