Abstract:

This study was concerned with the proliferation of data associated with the planning, controlling and reporting of the activities in the small program office commonly referred to as the basket SPO. Two questions were addressed 1 What kinds of control documentation do the basket SPOs presently use 2 what type of Management Information System MIS could be used to simplify the planning, programming and control system for the basket SPOs. To gain answers to these questions three basket SPO Program Managers were interviewed to ascertain their approach to a MIS. Interviews were also conducted at AFSC and CSAF to determine what kind of reporting higher headquarters required to maintain program visibility.
