Abstract:

This thesis examines the need for computer training of financial management officers in the Marine Corps. Currently, there is no computer requirement in the financial management training program. In order to determine if a need for computer training exists, a questionnaire was distributed at 28 Marine Corps installations to officers who possess disbursing, accounting, financial management, or financial management specialist military occupational specialties. Forty-nine percent of the officers responded. An evaluation of the computer education and training taken by these financial management officers to meet their computer related responsibilities is provided as well as the identification of microcomputers and software packages in use. The analysis indicates that a need for computer training exists and that formal courses of instruction should be implemented.
