Abstract:

The Armys current activity-based costing model, called Service Based Costing, focuses on costing Major Commands MACOMS and large installations. The Army has yet to develop an activity-based costing model for smaller organizations. This thesis develops an activity-based costing model for a small army organization, the Presidio of Montereys Law Enforcement Command LEC. This study arrived at the model by analyzing the LEC to determine the LECs products, processesactivities needed to produce those products, and the resources consumed by processesactivities while producing products. The model identifies seven major products produced by the LEC. These products are Police Information, Police Patrol Service, Investigations, Crime Prevention Education, Crime Watch Hot-line, Physical Security Inspections, and Magistrate Support.
