Abstract:

The Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center is tasked with the mission of developing, administering, and evaluating the Marine Corps Combined Arms Training Program. The allocation of increasingly scarce resources mandates that this training program be conducted as efficiently as possible. The purpose of this thesis is three fold. First, it examines the problems with the present budgeting system, cost accounting and reporting procedures, and the methods of establishing levels of resources to be used in combined arms training exercises employed by the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center. Second, it presents a model for accurately estimating the cost of these exercises through the establishement of standard costs. Third, it presents an alternative budgeting and cost reporting system and makes specific recommendations to improve the efficiency of the Combined Arms Training Program.
