Abstract: The purpose of this research project is two-fold: to explore the development and progression of the Navy's Green Procurement Program (GPP) and then to assess Navy organizations degree of success with incorporating GPPs into their installation procurement processes. This project provides an account of the federal policies and guidance regarding green procurement and the salient parts of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), the framework through which any possible GPP policy would be set. As we surveyed the Navy installation's progress toward a more energy-efficient and resource-conscious procurement process, we measured that progress by the goals and metrics outlined in the Department of Defense's (DOD's) GPP instruction. The green procurement process was measured by integrating the Contract Management Maturity Model (CMMM), which describes a procurement agency's level of development across the six phases of the Contract Management Process (CMP) framework. The CMP divides the procurement process into six major phases: procurement planning, solicitation planning, solicitation, source selection, contract administration, and contract closeout or termination. While previous applications of the CMMM focused on broader aspects of buying commands, our questions and diagnosis of Navy installation organizations were specifically focused through a lens of green procurement and energy efficiency. Our results show that Department of Navy procurement personnel have only a basic level of contract management maturity in green procurement.
