Abstract:

Since fiscal year 1999, the Navys budget for repairing spare parts to support its aviation weapons systems has increased by about 50 percent, from 1.2 billion to 1.8 billion. Some military commands have asserted that the escalating cost of these parts has adversely impacted the funds available for the readiness of military forces.
