Government contracting is one of the most important issues facing federal, state, and local governments. As governments contend with lower tax revenues and a growing belief that smaller government is better government, contracting has become a fundamental means of providing goods and services to citizens. This volume, which is geared toward practitioners as well as students, addresses the broad range of issues that comprise government contracting – from the political, economic philosophy, and value of contracting – to the future of government contracting. Throughout the volume academic theory provides a foundation to address practical subjects, including the contract process, monitoring and evaluating contracts, ethics, and both federal and state local government contracting. Contributors to this volume are both academicians and practitioners, who together offer their scholarly expertise and practical experience, encouraging readers to ask the very question "What is the role of government in American society?" Through this approach, students will acquire the knowledge needed to understand the various aspects of government contracting, and practitioners will enhance their public procurement skills. Government Contracting is ideally suited to MPA students, practitioners in the public sector, and elected officials looking to enhance their understanding of privatization and contracting in order to provide public services more effectively.

This is the first comprehensive book on Military Cost-Benefit Analysis and provides novel approaches to structuring cost-benefit and affordability analysis amidst an uncertain defense environment and cloudy fiscal prospects. Lifting the veil on military Cost-Benefit Analysis, this volume offers several new practical tools designed to guide defense investments (and divestments), combined with a selection of real-world applications. The widespread employment of Cost-Benefit Analysis offers a unique opportunity to transform legacy defense forces into efficient, effective, and accountable 21st century organizations. A synthesis of economics, statistics and decision theory, CBA is currently used in a wide range of defense applications in countries around the world: i) to shape national security strategy, ii) to set acquisition policy, and iii) to inform critical investments in people, equipment, infrastructure, services and supplies. As sovereign debt challenges squeeze national budgets, and emerging threats disrupt traditional notions of security, this volume offers valuable tools to navigate the political landscape, meet calls for fiscal accountability, and boost the effectiveness of defense investments to help guarantee future peace and stability. A valuable resource for scholars, practitioners, novices and experts, this book offers a comprehensive overview of Military Cost-Benefit Analysis and will appeal to anyone interested or involved in improving national security, and will also be of general interest to those responsible for major government programs, projects or policies.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,7, Bayerische Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (Institut für Wirtschaftsinformatik), Veranstaltung: Wirtschaftsinformatik-Seminar, 11 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Erfolgreiche Unternehmen zeichnen sich dadurch aus, dass sie Wettbewerbsvorteile gegenüber ihren Konkurrenten haben. Der immer größer werdende Wettbewerbsdruck durch zunehmende Globalisierung und durch immer kürzere Produktlebenszyklen und Entwicklungszeiten zwingt Unternehmen zu innovativen Ideen. Innovation bedeutet, neue Ideen bzw. Erfindungen zu generieren und diese wirtschaftlich umzusetzen. Die Forderung nach Innovation ist unumstritten, jedoch in der Praxis nicht immer leicht realisierbar. Die wichtigste Aufgabe für das Management besteht darin, Wege zu finden, um die Innovationsfähigkeit zu erhöhen. Immer mehr erfolgreiche Unternehmen stoßen bei dieser Frage auf einen völlig neuen Denkansatz: Die TRIZ-Methode. TRIZ ist das russisches Akronym für „Teoria reshenija izobretatjelskich zadacz“ und bedeutet soviel wie die „Theorie des erfinderischen Problemlösens“ (engl. TIPS für Theory of Inventive Problem Solving). Nach vielen bekannten Kreativitätstechniken wie dem Brainstorming oder der Trial and Error-Methode ist TRIZ der erste Ansatz der sich damit beschäftigt, wie man systematisch Lösungen für Probleme findet. Galt Systematik und Kreativität lange Zeit als widersprüchlich, so soll in dieser Arbeit mit TRIZ ein Ansatz vorgestellt werden, der diesen Widerspruch auflöst. Es werden verschiedene Methoden vorgestellt, die es ermöglichen, die Entwicklungsdauer von Innovationen anhand von geregelten Vorgehensweisen bzw. Leitfäden zu reduzieren. Obwohl sich TRIZ aus technischen Bereichen heraus entwickelt hat, sind viele der in dieser Arbeit vorgestellten Lösungsansätze auch für andere Bereiche anwendbar. Beispiele am Ende dieser Arbeit werden dies verdeutlichen.
