Abstract : This thesis investigates Naval Facilities Engineering Command policies and procedures with respect to construction contract warranties and the extent to which Navy construction contract warranties are enforced in the field. Throughout contract development and administration NAVFAC warranty policy is found to be well stated and consistent with Federal policies. Procedures used to comply with NAVFAC contracting policy are well defined and they are followed by contracting field activities. However, uniform warranty management controls are not used by nor readily available to activities that must manage warranties after construction has been completed. There is a potential for high cost facility deficiencies under warranty to be corrected at Government expense. Recommendations to correct this situation are proposed and discussed.
