Abstract : The focus of this research is to examine the Electronic Commerce/Electronic Data Interchange (EC/EDI) implementation plans within the Marine Corps and its various procurement offices. The primary intent is to evaluate the plan and determine if the Marine Corps can meet the Presidential Mandate that agencies adopt EC/EDI by 1997. This research analyzes, compares, and contrasts the plan to commercial EC/EDI implementation practices. Additionally, this thesis identifies the obstacles and virtues of the Corps EC/EDI implementation plan. Finally, recommendations and improvements to the Marine Corps EC/EDI implementation plan, if needed, are offered.
