Abstract : The purpose of the Navy's breakout program is to improve the acquisition status of replenishment spare parts through either, (1) identification of the actual manufacturer of an item, or (2) the competitive procurement of a part that was previously purchased noncompetively. The program, as established by the Department of Defense in 1983, had the annual buy value (ABV) as its determinator of candidate items. Since 1983 considerable sophistication has evolved in the breakout determination process. In particular, three models have been developed by various services to replace the ABV approach. This thesis develops a similar model for Navy use. Since such models depend on technical data, the procuring of such data is also considered. The obvious conclusion is that technical data should be obtained during the initial provisioning process.
