Abstract:

This thesis investigates the cost effectiveness of consolidating the facility support functions of the Defense Language Institute and remaining portions of Fort Ord with the Naval Postgraduate Schools Public Works Department. The fiscally constrained operating environment facing DOD has required all organizations to search for more effective ways to operate. This study suggests that there are economies of scale associated with centralized facility support organizations that would enable both NPS and DLI to attain cost savings under a consolidated facility support structure. The study analyzes the differential costs to service DLI and remaining portions of Fort Ord using an expanded NPS Public Works organization versus a separate and autonomous Army facility support organization. The study concludes that expanding the NPS Public Works Department to service the local Army installations is more cost effective than operating a separate Army facility support organization.
