Abstract : This thesis establishes the framework for determining the feasibility of consolidating the two current Marine Corps recruiting depots into one location. The drawdown in manpower and growing fiscal constraints is forcing all services to analyze their expenses. Through the analysis of costs to consolidate depots at one of the existing locations or establish a new facility, the researcher makes recommendations on which costs are relevant to the Marine Corps in this process. The final product provides a framework for identifying relevant costs and benefits applicable to making decisions for the consolidation of depots.
