Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs is a program initiated by the Office of the Secretary of Defense OSD in order to ensure that each Military Department gathers, tracks, and computes operating and support costs by weapon system. VAMOSC II is an Air Force management information system which is responsive to the OSD initiative. It uses information from existing Air Force data systems to satisfy both Air Force and OSD needs for certain weapon system operating and support OS costs. At present, the VAMOSC II system comprises three subsystems 1 The Weapon System Support Cost WSSC system D160, which deals with aircraft, 2 The Communications - Electronics C-E system D160A, which deals with ground communications - electronics equipment, 3 The Component Support Cost Subsystem CSCS D160B, which deals with subsystems and components for aircraft. This report provides the verification and validation of the algorithm called Base Other Support General Costs . Other Support General denotes those Support General activities other than inspections e.g. ground handling and servicing. The costs of Base Other Support General are the sum of direct labor costs and allocated portions of base maintenance overhead costs. These sums are provided separately for each combination of aircraft MDS and base. Base Other Support General costs are calculated exactly the same way as the Base Inspection Costs, which were reviewed in a previous ISI report.
