Best Practices In Government Acquisition: A Test Of The Government Accountability Office’S Knowledge-Based Acquisition Theory, Dana C. Wyman II 2010 Air Force Institute of Technology

Best Practices In Government Acquisition: A Test Of The Government Accountability Office’S Knowledge-Based Acquisition Theory, Dana C. Wyman Ii

Theses and Dissertations

The U.S. Government has looked for effective ways of reducing acquisition cost and schedule overruns for decades. The task of isolating the root cause of these overruns has been difficult. Consequently, it has been difficult for the Government to create effective policies that prevent overruns from recurring. In 1998, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) undertook this problem, and looked to successful DOD and commercial companies for solutions. They found that using mature technology, having complete product designs, and having production processes under control was critical to successfully developing new products. The GAO combined these concepts into a single acquisition ...

Algunos Temas Puntuales En Relacion A La Regulacion Normativa Del Proceso Contencioso-Administrativo De “Agravio” O De Lesividad En La Ley Que Regula El Proceso Contencioso Administrativo Del Peru, Ramon Huapaya Jr. 2010 Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru

Algunos Temas Puntuales En Relacion A La Regulacion Normativa Del Proceso Contencioso-Administrativo De “Agravio” O De Lesividad En La Ley Que Regula El Proceso Contencioso Administrativo Del Peru, Ramon Huapaya Jr.

Ramon Huapaya Jr.

Es un estudio preliminar sobre el origen de una institución muy típica en el ordenamiento contencioso-administrativo del Perú, como es el proceso de agravio o de lesividad, por el cual una entidad de la Administración Pública adquiere legitimación procesal para solicitar que se declare judicialmente la nulidad de un acto emitida por ella misma, invocando que dicho acto agravia la legalidad y el interés público.


Section 4 Of The Hindu Succession Act Of 1956, Hari Priya 2010 NALSAR University of Law

Section 4 Of The Hindu Succession Act Of 1956, Hari Priya

Hari Priya

A brief write up in the form of a comprehensive article aiming to critically evaluate the Section 4 of the Hindu Succession Act of 1956. The law, as it stands amended, has not only brought about changes in the succession laws of Hindus, but has also paved the way for some positive modifications in the law of partition, alienation of property, inheritance and adoption, and the paper is an effort to evaluate this provision of the law.

Just The Facts: Solving The Corporate Privilege Waiver Dilemma, Don R. Berthiaume 2010 Columbia Law School at Catholic University

Just The Facts: Solving The Corporate Privilege Waiver Dilemma, Don R. Berthiaume

Don R Berthiaume

How can corporations provide “just the facts” — which are, in fact, not privileged — without waiving the attorney client privilege and work product protection? This article argues for an addition to the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure based upon Rule 30(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which allows civil litigants to issue a subpoena to an organization and cause them to “designate one or more officers, directors, or managing agents, or designate other persons who consent to testify on its behalf … about information known or reasonably available to the organization.”[6] Why should we look to Fed ...


Curbing Rent-Seeking And Inefficiency With Broad Takings Powers And Undercompensation: The Case Of Singapore From A Givings Perspective, Jianlin Chen 2010 University of Chicago

Curbing Rent-Seeking And Inefficiency With Broad Takings Powers And Undercompensation: The Case Of Singapore From A Givings Perspective, Jianlin Chen

Jianlin Chen

Conventional discourses on the perils of weak property rights vis-à-vis government takings have failed to account for and respond to the rent-seeking and inefficiency problems of government actions. Singapore, with its broad takings powers, coupled with express undercompensation, has not suffered from the predicted widespread rent-seeking and inefficiency. This case study of Singapore from a givings perspective demonstrates the importance of imposing a fair charge on the various kinds of givings in curbing rent-seeking and inefficiency. There are also additional benefits of having a healthy fiscal budget and more equitable taxation arising from Singapore's givings regime. The key normative ...


China In Context: Energy, Water, And Climate Cooperation, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson 2010 SelectedWorks

China In Context: Energy, Water, And Climate Cooperation, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Climate resilient communities can be achieved with the support of global research, development, deployment, and diffusion of environmentally sound low GHG emission technologies and processes. Technology cooperation should lower emissions remaining mindful of biodiversity, ecosystem services and livelihoods. China and the United States need to respond effectively to both economic and climate crises and can do so in part by cooperating on environmentally sound technology that transforms the global use of energy.

Saving America's Automobile Industry: The Bailouts Of 1979 And 2009, An Overview Of The Economic Conditions, Factors For Failure, Government Interventions And Public Reactions, Taylor A. Wall

CMC Senior Theses

This paper will discuss the bankruptcies experienced by U.S. automakers in both 1979 and 2009. The main factors which led the automakers into financial ruin was the uncontrolled power of labor unions, the severe financial impact of oil embargos, the aggressive imposition of federal regulations and the increasing dominance of Japanese imports. After discussing these important factors, the paper will describe the specifics of Chrysler’s bailout experience in 1979 with the positive public acceptance of the government loans, largely due to the character of Lee Iacocca. After delving into Chrysler, this paper will explain the specifics of the ...

A Versatile Prism: Assessing Procurement Law Through The Principal-Agent Model, Christopher R. Yukins 2010 George Washington University Law School

A Versatile Prism: Assessing Procurement Law Through The Principal-Agent Model, Christopher R. Yukins

GW Law Faculty Publications & Other Works

Over the past several decades, the federal procurement system in the United States has grown remarkably, and now totals over $500 billion annually.

Over that same period, the rules governing federal procurement have been buffeted by broad efforts at reform. At no point, however, have we ever had an overarching theory - a model or prism - through which to assess the procurement system or its reform. Agency theory provides one such theoretical model. Long established in economics and the other social sciences, the principal-agent model (agency theory) provides a model to explain successes (and failures) in organizational structures, and also to ...
