Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to identify and discuss the components of large purchase Procurement Administrative Lead Time (PALT) at the Naval Regional Contracting Center (NRCC) Philadelphia and techniques which may be employed by NRCC personnel to reduce PALT given the current acquisition environment at the NRCC. Findings were that implementation of the initiatives in the Competition in Contracting Act (CICA) of 1984 and the Productive Unit Resourcing System (PURS) have resulted in increased PALT. The major conclusion is that NRCC Philadelphia is employing the correct techniques for control and management of PALT. Recommendations include initiation of a customer education and training program, early synopsis of appropriate requirements, revising the PURS unit weighting system, and development of a MIS to reduce PALT.
