Abstract:

This thesis investigates the Integrated Disbursing and Accounting Financial Management System IDAFMS, the primary supporting subsystem for the Navys Integrated Disbursing and Accounting Financial Information Processing System IDAFIPS. Past deficiencies of Navy financial management systems and the benefits of integrated, real-time systems are discussed. The four sub-systems comprising IDAFIPS are described in general terms. IDAFMS capabilities and the enhanced control it brings to Navy financial managers are reviewed in detail. The employment of microcomputers by Navy financial managers and as an integral component of IDAFMS is investigated. Opportunities for employment of microcomputers in training applications and the considerations for computer based instruction are discussed. The Installation and Implementation Plans for IDAFMS are analyzed, particularly with respect to implementation training. Recommendations are offered to enhance IDAFMS training programs and implementation plans. keywords Automated Accounting Systems U.S. Navy Financial Management Integrated Disbursing and Accounting IDA U.S. Navy Financial Systems Disbursing Accounting Systems Microcomputers in Financial Management.
