The purpose of this MBA Project is to identify financial, manpower, and time variables in the contract berthing budget line and to determine the effects of the variables on cost and efficiency statistics of the budget line given a continuance of current policy. A contract berthing budget line refers to the funding provided under a contract berthing policy to reservists to cover certain lodging and meal expenses. More particularly, selected Reservists SELRES are required to conduct drills for pay at their assigned Readiness Command REDCOM, including the Naval Air Reserve NAR andor Naval Air Facility NAF. REDCOMS are typically assigned according to the facility closest to the home of residence of the SELRFS. Under current Command Naval Reserves Forces Command CNRFC contract berthing policy, SELRFS living more than 50 miles from their assigned NAR are authorized lodging and meals expenses in addition to their drill pay. In this project, REDCOM statistics are analyzed to estimate the increase or decrease in funding required for contract berthing budget line. The current berthing process ad the potential future effects on the e50-mile radius rule of the contract berthing policy are also examined. The data included in this MBA project were generated in pre- BRAC 2005 decisions therefore, analyses in this project are based on that data. Finally, based on the foregoing analyses, an assessment is made as to whether changes to the current contract berthing policy are warranted.
