Abstract : This report conducts a cost-benefit analysis of the policy implemented to scrutinize non-DOD conference attendance at the Naval Postgraduate School. Using historical conference travel data fromFY12 to FY15, this analysis assesses the strengths and challenges associated with the current policy compared with the conventional process prior to the travel restrictions. The findings of the cost-benefit analysis identify the resource and labor expenses resulting from the increase in processing requirements. This report recommends an abridged process to improve the efficiency of processing non-DOD conference requests.
