Abstract : Turkey embarked upon an intensive program to modernize its armed forces to bring them in line with emerging technologies and the requirement of NATO. Foreign Military Sales (FMS) has been, and is still, one of the most important Security Assistance Programs that Turkey uses to modernize and maintain its armed forces. The purpose of this thesis is to document and analyze issues involved with FMS pricing, billing, contract closure, and FMS contract administration by the Turkish Navy. Adopting the recommendations in this thesis should improve the administration of FMS contracts by the Turkish Navy. Additionally, this thesis contributes to the knowledge needed by the Turkish field officers who will work in implementing FMS contracts.
