Abstract:

The federal government encourages contracting for the purpose of reducing operating costs. Military base operating support BOS functions are a prime area for such contracting. However, there exists only limited review of how effective this policy has been. This thesis analyzes the results of the various contracting alternatives implemented by bases within different naval warfare communities. It was found that, in most cases, contracting of BOS functions did indeed result in reduced costs. Additionally, it was found that, most of the time, full base BOS contracts performed better than other contracting alternatives. Keywords Theses
