In 1974, Department of Defense Directive 3200.11, Use, Management and Operation of Department of Defense Major Ranges and Test Facilities implemented a uniform funding policy for certain members of the Major Range and Test Facilities Base. Under this policy, Department of Defense and other federal users reimburse test facilities for the direct costs excluding military labor of test and evaluation support. Non-federal users reimburse the full costs of test support. Because of the wide diversity of activities at the various ranges and test facilities, the possibility exists that widely varying interpretation and implementation of the uniform funding policy could have occurred. The definition of direct cost, in particular, seems open to wide interpretation. After sampling the way the facilities classify costs, the authors conclude for many costs uniformity does exist. However, there appears to be some confusion between the classification of costs at the facility, the assessment of costs to a user and the reimbursement of costs by a user.
