Abstract:

A company officer at the United States Naval Academy USNA is tasked with developing midshipmen morally, mentally, physically, and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, honor, and loyalty. This task requires increased knowledge on performance measurement and the right tool that will enhance their ability to develop midshipmen into the 2lst century. A performance-measurement-based management information system will greatly enhance the company officers ability to develop, maintain, and use information technology for purposes of performance measurement. Based on user requirements, this research identifies the key result areas and key indicators, designs, and develops a prototype. The Company Officer Management Information System COMIS prototype is developed using Microsoft Access 97, an approved Department of the Navy IT-2l compliant software application. The findings in this research strongly support the use of the COMIS prototype at the USNA and indicate that future research and future application development will significantly enhance the development of midshipmen well into the 2lst century.
