In the last 20 years, Congress and senior DoD officials have exerted significant pressure on each of the services, to develop methodologies for providing objective, rigorously derived, quantitative justification for resource requirements. Of the programs that resulted, at the Department of Defense level and within the Navy, several were intended to support the manpower and budget requirements determination process for naval hospitals. Programs emanating from the Department of Defense were the Uniform Chart of Accounts UCA, Uniform Staffing Methodologies USM, the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System DEERS, and CHAMPUS. Navy-sponsored programs were eventually incorporated under the umbrella of the Navy Manpower Engineering Program NAVMEP. This thesis attempts to describe the process employed within the Navy medical department to determine manpower budget requirements for naval hospitals, the role of each echelon of the chain of command, and the contributions of the formal programs to the process.
