Abstract:

Downsizing is and will continue to be a fact of life in the U. S. Military for the foreseeable future. Many military organizations are reorganizing to reduce expenses and increase efficiency in an effort to survive budget cuts. The Fleet and Industrial Supply Center FISC, San Diego, CA., is an organization that desires to reorganize to maintain its position as a leader and innovator in the military purchasing community. This thesis analyzes the structure, key management processes, information flows, and employee perceptions of the efficiency of the organizational structure at FISC Site North Island and FISC Site Naval Station, in addition to the procurement management functions at the FISC Headquarters. As a result of this analysis, a new organizational design and the beginnings of a transition plan are recommended to improve the efficiency of FISCs purchasing management.
