Professor Trevor Brown has won a grant from the U.S. Department of the Navy's Naval Postgraduate School to further his research on contract design. The $78,000 grant provides Professor Brown the resources to assess how the characteristics of different goods and services and the relative bargaining strength of vendors impact whether the Department of Defense relies on fixed price or cost reimbursement types of contracts. The results of this study will help the Department of Defense secure the best possible value when it buys goods and services. This new research will build on work Professor Brown has conducted with Yong Woon Kim, a graduate of the Glenn School's doctoral program.
