Abstract:

The Naval Facilities Engineering Command, like all other major commands within the Department of Defense, is interested in the cost effective utilization of their limited research and development investments. Assessments of NAVFACs RDTE results conducted in 1968 and 1980 established baselines for determining where improvements are needed. This study uses the results of a mail questionnaire, sent to military and civilian personnel at NAVFAC family activities worldwide, to provide a basis for a current assessment of how effectively NAVFACs RDTE investments are being utilized. This current assessment is used to make comparisons with the previously established baselines, in order to provide a basis for measuring the degree of improvement and to provide information for the development of an RDTE investment strategy for the 1990s. The results indicate that numerous trends have been continued, progress has been made, and that there are some areas of concern.
