Abstract : Defense Management Report Decision 916 resulted in the consolidation of all Service Plant Representative Offices into the newly created Defense Contract Management Command. This study focused on the impacts of this consolidation on Contract Administration support of Naval Air System Command customers. The results of surveys with Procuring Contracting Officers and Program Managers of the Naval Air Systems Command, Administrative Contracting Officers from four Defense Plant Representative Offices, and industry personnel from four defense contractor facilities are reported. It was concluded that the new Defense Plant Representative Offices are supporting the basic needs of Navy and industrial customers, but not as well as the previous Naval Plant Representative Offices had. Twelve recommendations are presented to correct the deficiencies identified. Contract Administration Services; NAVPRO; Defense Management Report Decision 916.
