Abstract:

Declining budgets and the reduction of workforce has caused many organizations to perform additional job assignments with fewer personnel. These organizations realized that in order to survive in a competitive market, scarce resources would provide the most value if used to work on mission-essential tasks, while allowing the performance of support functions by an outside source called outsourcing. The Department of the Navy DoN is one organization that has chosen to outsource many business areas, but none bigger than the outsourcing of information technology IT to form the Navy Marine Corps Intranet NMCI-the largest IT outsourcing contract to date. While the DoN has faced many challenges since the onset of the NMCI contracting agreement, this thesis focuses on the challenges faced by the Navy Reserve with managing the Intranets user accounts. The research uses the principles of Business Process Redesign BPR and Knowledge Management KM to determine the current state As-Is and to recommend changes in the account management process. Specifically, the Knowledge-Value Added KVA methodology was used to determine the amount of knowledge quantitatively embedded in each sub-process for a relative comparison of the value that the sub-processes provide to the overall process.
