Abstract : The key role of the Public Works Officer in the management of the Naval Shore Establishment is well known. Recent organizational changes in the Navy Department have placed increased responsibilities on the Bureau of Yards and Docks in a continuing search for more efficient ways to operate and maintain our shore facilities. The value and effectiveness of Bureau management programs is largely dependent upon the degree of acceptance which they are accorded at activity level. This survey polled a sample of Public Works Officers to answer two basic questions. First, how they actually apportion their time between thirteen different functions and how they feel about it. Second, which of the eighteen reports listed in the questionnaire are most regularly used and whether they are in the best format for management purposes. The objective of the study was to determine which functional areas receive disproportionate amounts of the Public Works Officer's time and what type of reports he finds most helpful in conducting his affairs. Results point toward management areas needing attention and suggest methods for improving reporting techniques. (Author)
