This thesis examines the effect an industrial funded chargeback system would have on management and control of Marine Corps non-deployable ADP resources. Within this framework, current Marine Corps ADP structure and planning is discussed, along with regulatory, organizational, and economic issues. The Naval Data Automation Command NAVDAC experience with industrial fund implementation is reviewed and a Marine Corps proposal for industrial funded ADP is developed. While this thesis does propose a method for implementation of industrial funding, it also points out concerns which remain unresolved. Accordingly, it does not conclude that industrial funding is the best solution, only that it is possible, has much to offer, and therefore warrants consideration. Keywords ADP chargeback, ADP cost allocation, ADP pricing, commercial activities, and output pricing.
