The focus of this thesis is to determine the use of multiyear contracting for purchasing non-major weapon systems. The intent of this research is to analyze long-term procurement of supplies and equipment, specifically valves, pumps and compressors. The purpose of the study is to determine the level at which multiyear contracting procedures are used to acquire supplies and equipment. The study will determine factors which promote or restrict the utilization of multiyear contracts. Surveys and interviews were used to assess the use of long-term procedures for buying supplies. The conclusion indicates that multiyear contracting is limited when purchasing repair parts for weapon systems, and there are alternative methods used to procure repair parts on a long-term basis. Recommendations include making policy and procedural changes to promote the increased usage of multiyear contracts, and implementing programs to market the benefits of long-term contracting, especially multiyear contracting
