Abstract : This thesis is a cost comparison between Active Fleet and Naval Reserve Force (NRF) Oliver Hazard Perry class guided missile frigates (FFG). It examines the rationale for having a Naval Reserve surface ships program and documents the cost savings attributable to the transfer of a ship to the NRF. A representative annual cost to operate an Active Fleet FFG is compared to the annual cost of a NRF FFG; the primary source of data is the Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs (VAMOSC) data base provided by the Naval Center For Cost Analysis. The thesis also sets up theoretical depreciation schedules for selected ships to examine how this expense would affect the annual operating costs for both NRF and Active Fleet ships.
