The present era of austere budgets and changing Coast Guard missions has brought new importance to the task of estimating future resource requirements. Also, to a large extent the future effectiveness of the Coast Guard is dependent upon the ability of Coast Guard planners to compete with other federal agencies for the limited funds available. This requires that budget requests be justified and well documented. An important part of any Coast Guard Budget request is that portion dealing with the resource requirements of the support establishment. However, because of the special nature of the support establishment, one of the more difficult tasks facing a Coast Guard planner is estimating support costs. This thesis addresses this problem by presenting a method, based upon input-output analysis, for estimating future support costs.
