Abstract : This thesis examines the key contracting issues that have caused Repair Turnaround Time (RTAT) of Depot-Level Repairables (DLR's) under the Contractor Depot Maintenance (CDM) program to be excessive. Many of the DLR's repaired by commercial depots under this program exceed the Naval Supply System Command's goal of 60 days for items managed by the Navy Ships Part Control Center (SPCC) and 45 days for items managed by the Aviation Supply Office (ASO). SPCC, ASO and four commercial depots were visited to gather RTAT data on DLR's and identify potential improvements in the CDM program that would reduce RTAT. An analysis of the policies and procedures used by SPCC and ASO in requirements determination as well as the effects of the repair workload forecast on the CDM process was also conducted. Recommendations are made to reduce RTAT through the contractual vehicle utilized and enhanced demand forecasting. Keywords: Theses, Government furnished material.
