Abstract:

The United States Marine Corps Installations Logistics Department, located at the Navy Annex in Washington D.C., conducts the Sustainment Program Evaluation Board as part of the Planning, Programming, Budgeting, and Execution Process. One of the functions of this board is to estimate the future funds required to support equipment maintenance world-wide in the Marine Corps. Since these estimates compete with other USMC funding needs, they must be based on reliable data using defensible methodologies. In support of Installations Logistics priorities, the department needs to improve the defensibility of its estimates in the current budgetary environment. The Assistant Deputy Commandant, Installations Logistics, Headquarters Marine Corps, located at the Navy Annex in Washington D.C., has requested this study to develop pricing models for OperatingCrew, Field levels, and Sustainment level of maintenance in order to predict maintenance funding requirements at the Marine Forces level. The inputs will include historical inventory quantities for the Marine Forces equipment and corresponding cost data for each echelon of maintenance.
