A Holistic Compliance Model for Capture Teams: A Grounded Theory Approach
Anderson, Duane C.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
By the time a Department of Defense (DOD) Request for Proposal (RFP) is awarded, its initial targets have moved, in many cases so much as to render any replies by the defense industry to an RFP useless. Requirements tend to evolve during the development of systems specifications. This may be caused in part by new information acquired during the period prior to the award of the RFP, thereby mandating changes in how the system performs. This research will address one small but important part of these problems: the development and specification of requirements analysis. The intended strategy in conducting this research is to review and analyze the existing body of knowledge about holistic compliance, capture teams, and RFP standards and requirements. By performing content analysis of the unstructured texts published by a United States DOD acquisition organization originating an RFP, themes will be uncovered. The resulting themes will be instrumental in designing a theory that could explain how holistic compliance is actualized in a capture team's proposal efforts during the evolution of an RFP. This study will use the grounded systems engineering methodology (GSEM) framework, devised by Galal and Paul (1999) to establish requirements pertinent to the assessment and description of the RFP. Data analysis will be aided by Leximancer (Version 4), a qualitative analysis software package. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
