Abstract:

The primary purpose of this study was to review the peculiarities between Navy and Marine Corps acquisition procedures, concentrating on their inter-relationships as they affect the Marine Air Traffic Control Unit MATCU Program. Within the Marine Corps, certain types of equipment e. g. aircraft and aircraft-related are funded, procured and supported with Navy Blue Dollars other equipments are funded with Marine Corps Green Dollars. When acquiring equipment and systems with Green Dollars, Marine Corps acquisition procedures--as outlined in MCO P5000.10--are followed. However, for Blue Dollar programs, current directives generally require compliance with both Marine Corps and Navy acquisition procedures. This duplication frequently results in confusion and conflict, especially in the areas of determining the proper approval authorities and of coping in the Navy system. The author identifies and discusses ten problem areas and makes recommendations for their resolution.
