The purpose of this study was to develop a practical guide to C/SCSC for the PCO to use as a ready reference while on the job or in a training environment. As such, some germane topics addressed in this thesis include objectives of C/SCSC, C/SCSC related items of DOD solicitations, evaluation of the contractor's C/SCSC plan or program during source selection, C/SCSC validation and compliance reviews, application of cost and schedule performance data, and current initiatives for improvement of C/SCSC.
