Abstract

Objectives:

  • Establish a view of the acquirer and supplier/contractor roles and responsibilities.
  • Show how measurement and analysis skills for internal development can be recast for acquisition and contracting environments.
  • Address a prevalent question in the acquisition community:
    • How can we conduct casual analysis when we no longer control the collection processes and/or data?
