Abstract
This study conducts a cost-based analysis to determine the feasibility of insourcing the ordnance handling at Navy Munitions Command Pacific East Asia Division Detachment Pearl Harbor (NMCPAC EAD DET PH). Contractors have provided the service for over 30 years, after an Office of Management and Budget A-76 study in the 1980s determined it was more economical for the private sector to do the work previously done by military service members. This study examines whether using the government civilian workforce to perform ordnance handling generates cost savings when compared with contracting. Using a cost-based analysis, this study reviews all the associated costs of converting to a government civilian workforce and compares them with the cost of contracting out these services. Based on the methodology and data used in this study, the findings show savings from using government civilian workforce over contracting starting with year seven. The recommendation is for NMCPAC EAD DET PH to revert to insourcing the labor and purchasing/leasing the material for ordnance handling operations in order to provide the service in-house instead of continuing to contract out. This can generate monetary savings and other intangible benefits, such as better command and control.
