About the Edition

This thesis effort is a continuance of research to determine, through a consensus of opinion among contracting professionals, a definition for current contracting terminology. This research was first initiated by Lieutenant Commander Daniel L. Ryan, Supply Corps, United States Navy and was later accomplished by others at both the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, and at the Air Force Institute of Technology, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. As with the previous efforts, this thesis examined literary sources for the current definitions and usage of the chosen terms. A definition for each of twenty five terms was synthesized, incorporated in an open ended survey, and sent to contracting professionals affiliated with the National Contract Management Association. Respondent comments were analyzed, and, when appropriate, incorporated in the final, proposed definitions.
