Abstract : This thesis set out to determine if it was possible or required for the Department of Defense to competitively procure electrical utility services (power). The research was conducted by archival research of legal rulings, industry and governmental publications, federal regulations, federal statutes, and federal policies. This was followed with field research and interviews with key individuals involved in utility management and utility procurement. It was determined that competitive procurement of electrical utility services is not only possible, it is required. The thesis presents an overview of the electric utility industry, a review of competitive procurement guidance and policies, and an analysis of several considerations and strategies for competitive procurement, and it provides conclusions and recommendations for actions and further study.
