Abstract : The primary purpose of this thesis is to review the management of the contract closeout process (primarily within the Defense Contract Management Command and selective Department of the Navy contracting activities) and determine if it is performed in an effective and efficient manner. The frequency of occurrence and level of difficulty of the fifteen contract closeout steps listed in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) were assessed and analyzed. Secondary objectives include identifying the areas that impede the process and/or are neglected throughout the process and the ramifications thereof. Finally, recommendations are presented for a 'streamlined' approach to the contract closeout process that can be applied throughout the entire contract administration cycle.
