Abstract : This thesis studies the contract types and incentives involved in the privatization of Newark AFB and the Naval Air Warfare Center-indianapolis. Newark AFB was slated to close by the Base Realignment and Closure Commission (BRAC) in 1993. The Air Force decided to utilize an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract, and utilize an award fee to incentivize the contractor. In 1995, the BRAC commission decided to close the Naval Air Warfare Center-Indianapolis. The Navy also decided to utilize an IDIQ contract and has mostly utilized the Fixed Price Level of Effort contract to obtain its requirements. Through interviews and a study of contract types, the contracts are analyzed to determine if the contract types are appropriate for what the Air Force and Navy are trying to accomplish. Through this effort possible areas of improvement are found that may help in future privatization efforts, to include the Kelly AFB and McClellan AFB depots.
