Abstract : LMI investigated the role and effectiveness of facilities capital as a factor in contract pricing to support the Defense Financial and Investment Review study. Various statistical analyses were performed to test the sensitivity of pricing to facilities capital as well as other factors. The report also investigates the response by defense contractors to the investment incentives of the manufacturers in general, and to defense contractors own past behavior. This report is not required to understand the Defense Financial and Investment Review final report, but is an excellent document on the specific subject matter of facilities capital. Keywords: Facilities Capital, Investment Incentives, Weighted guidelines, Profit Policy, Contractor Investment Behavior, Financial Risk. (Author)
