Summary

This paper presents a microcomputer-based contract termination processing model developed for the U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP). The model, implemented as a microcomputer program, serves as an Expert Advisory/advanced Decision Support System for processing contracts recommended as termination candidates by the Supply Demand Review (SDR) component. The system employs a benefit-cost model approach to evaluate potential supply contract termination actions. It replicates expert decision behavior typical of competent contract administrators in this focused area of performance. Additional features are provided for documentation of the evaluation, processing, collection of data for subsequent analysis, and merging and reporting collective statistics from operational use. The computer model and program, known as TERMINATOR, were developed and implemented in a relatively short period of time and currently have wide operational use.
