Abstract:

The Minuteman Education Program is currently costing the Strategic Air Command 2.2 million per year. Due to the inflationary pressures on the civilian institutions providing the education, it appears that the cost will increase annually. Since the funding for the program comes for SACs limited operations and maintenance budget, a more economical way to conduct the program needs to be found. The comparative analysis of the six individual programs contained in this study serves as one of the steps required in the search for a more economical alternative. Specifically, this study conducted a comparative analysis across a board range of areas within each of the six program. Based on the results of the analysis, the feasibility of placing the Minuteman Education Program under a single manager system headquartered at the Air Force Institute of Technology was ascertained. The study indicated that the single manager system is a viable alternative, provided certain policy decisions are made. Author
