A discussion of the rationale for public regulation of subcontracting, including an analysis of current subcontracting policy, and suggested changes. The analysis of current policy focuses on: (1) choice of items to be subcontracted; (2) method of selecting subcontractors; and (3) provisions of the contract between the prime contractor and the vendor. The suggested changes in subcontracting policy emphasize these questions.
