Data was collected OFC-01 funds administrators, obtained through field visits and telephone interviews, and compared with Type Commander directives and research on management control systems. Specific areas described in the research included the administration and flow of OFC-01 funds, the Budget OPTAR Report, and the Navy Flying Hour Program. The conclusions contained in this thesis provide an evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the OFC-01 management control system. Strengths include a well developed information system, an established financial structure, and a strong structural organizations. Weaknesses include a flow of funds that does not follow the operational chain of command and a lack of formal feedback from CNAP to the squadron level.
