Abstract:

To determine the savings associated with the consolidation the Navy Publishing and Printing Service NPPS first collected fiscal year 1990 cost and production data for the services and DLAs printing and duplicating facilities that would be consolidated in the new structure. This information included 1 actual fiscal year 1990 costs for civilian salaries, equipment maintenance and repair, and equipment leaserental and 2 certain factors and percentages that were agreed to by the services and DLA to determine costs for civilian benefits, military personnel, personnel support, space, supply, depreciation, and miscellaneous overhead. NPPS determined a NPPS comparable cost for the other services and DLAs production by 1 computing a NPPS average price per thousand units of production for the other services and DLAs production based on its expected 1992 prices 1 and 2 multiplying each activitys total production units for fiscal year 1990 by these average prices per thousand units of production to get NPPS cost for the other services and DLAs 1990 production. NPPS then subtracted the difference between each activitys fiscal year 1990 costs and NPPS estimated cost for comparable production to determine the savings associated with the consolidation.
