Abstract:

This thesis places the Information Resource Management Architecture of the U.S. Coast Guard in the contagious growth stage of Nolans model of organizational computer growth. Control is the next stage predicted by the model. The financial accounting basis of EDP chargeback and control systems is examined as a precursor to developing five management control requirements of the IRM architecture. These include 1 aggregate financial accounting for information services, 2 an auditable user accessauthorization scheme, 3 a user-oriented chargeback system, 4 pricing to establish an information marketplace, and 5 an information decision tool to assist in user tradeoff decisions between information services, Finally, an integrated system to satisfy these requirements at the Coast Guard District Office level of the IRM architecture is described, based on a Local Area Network system.
