    A Transactions Cost Economics (TCE) Approach to Optimal Contract Type
    (2006-04-01) Franck, Raymond; Melese, Francois; Dillard, John; Financial Management (FM); Graduate School of Business & Public Policy (GSBPP); Acquisition Research Program (ARP); Financial Management; NPS Faculty
    This study examines defense acquisition through the new lens of Transaction Cost Economics (TCE). TCE is an emergent field in economics that has multiple applications to defense acquisition practices. TCE''s original focus was to guide ''make-or-buy?'' decisions that define the boundaries of a firm. This study reviews insights afforded by TCE that impact government outsourcing (''buy'' decisions), paying special attention to defense procurement.

    Developing software requirements supporting open architecture performance goals in critical DoD system-of-systems
    (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2006-09-15) Naegle, Brad; Graduate School of Business & Public Policy (GSBPP); Research and Sponsored Programs Office (RSPO); Graduate School of Business & Public Policy (GSBPP); Graduate School of Business & Public Policy (GSBPP)
    To implement the capabilities conceptualized in the National Military Strategy, complex, secure networks of weapon systems, intelligence platforms, and command-and-control mechanisms must be seamlessly integrated and maintained over time. Accurate and timely information will enable National Military Strategy key tenets to be realized. These networks are central warfighting platforms in the information age. As these capabilities are developed over time in an evolutionary manner, interoperability on the Net-Centric Warfare (NCW) networks is essential, and both hardware and software systems must be designed in an Open-systems Architecture (OA) fashion to accommodate the vast number of changes anticipated. Professional Program Management will be needed to successfully develop these key warfighting platforms. Materiel Developers will need to recognize the relatively immature nature of the software engineering domains and actively compensate for this immaturity. System software performance capabilities must be much more detailed than typical hardware-centric systems, as the current state of software engineering disciplines is unlikely to satisfy implied, yet critical performance requirements. Essential OA performance characteristics including Maintainability, Upgradability, Interfaces/Interoperability, Reliability, Safety and Security (MUIRSS) must be fully analyzed and clearly communicated to the software developer to ensure the DoD obtains the flexibility and longevity desired from NCW systems.-- p. i.

    Rapid transformation in a dual identity Defense University
    (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2005) Sekerka, Leslie E.; Zolin, Roxanne; Simon, Cary; Graduate School of Business & Public Policy (GSBPP); Research and Sponsored Programs Office (RSPO); Graduate School of Business & Public Policy (GSBPP); Graduate School of Business & Public Policy (GSBPP)
    We discuss and examine strategies used to achieve rapid transformation when there are specialized identities within an organization. In this case study we use a grounded theory approach, conducting interviews with individuals representing the various subgroups in the organization two years after a reform initiative was undertaken. Transcripts were thematically analyzed. The findings contributed to the development of a model to depict the effects of a specialized management identity that employs a deletion strategy using coercion to effect rapid transformation. Recommendations are presented for specialized identity change management strategies.

    Privatizing the Naval Surface Warfare Center Depot at Louisville
    (2005-05-01) Lucyshyn, William; Financial Management (FM); Graduate School of Business & Public Policy (GSBPP); Research and Sponsored Programs Office (RSPO); Acquisition Research Program (ARP); Financial Management; Other Research Faculty
    During the 1995 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process, the Department of Defense (DoD) recommended that the Louisville depot be closed and its workloads transferred to several DoD facilities. The depot''s principal mission was to overhaul and repair the Navy''s multi-platform 5-inch gun and its Phalanx close-in antiaircraft system. The plan was to transfer the gun repair work to the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, Virginia, the Phalanx to the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane, Indiana, and the engineering support functions to the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme, California. During the BRAC review process, the city of Louisville proposed to the Commission that the DoD privatize the depot workload in-place. The Commission found that the Navy''s cost savings from the closure were overstated, that the gun systems engineering functions at Louisville are consistent with operational requirements, and that the maintenance and overhaul functions performed at the facility have contributed substantially to the effectiveness of the Department of the Navy.
