This study was undertaken to develop new and reliable methods for annual public works resource allocations to U.S. Naval shore activities for maintenance of Class II Real Property facilities. Existing data from 134 activities located in the eastern United States were selected for analysis. Economic, geographic, climatic, organizational, and operational factors and measurements were considered and evaluations made to estimate their influence on maintenance fund and manpower requirements. Regression equations, based on data from a selected number of building types and the 134 activities, are given for estimating requirements. Applications of the equations for sample estimates are encouraging, but results indicate need for further refinement and extension of the analysis. Recommendations are made for temporary use of pertinent equations with judicious consideration of their inherent limitations. As such, these methods should be useful as a management tool for resource allocations at field engineering offices and for planning at the Bureau of Yards and Docks. Author
