Abstract
Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) is responsible for all U.S. Navy and Marine Corps facilities. The mission of NAVFAC is to plan and deliver innovative, best-value, technology-leveraged solutions and alternatives that enable the clients and various commands to accomplish their missions. NAVFAC is the major claimant for the eleven Engineering Field Divisions/Activities (EFD/A). The Officer in Charge of Contracts (OICC) is primarily responsible for the post-award phase of construction contracts that NAVFAC administers. The OICCs work at the various field offices throughout the NAVFAC organization. The resource sponsor for NAVFAC is N4, Fleet Readiness and Logistics, who is responsible for identifying the mission, funding and authorizing requirements for NAVFAC. As the major claimant, NAVFAC is responsible for determining the requirements for the EFD/As, which are funded by N4. Due to funding constraints, the Navy is required to be as efficient as possible. This research analyzes the current manpower algorithm used to determine requirements for the various EFD/As. The data shows that the current algorithm does not reflect a number of factors impacting work-hours. An analysis was conducted to derive a more accurate algorithm to include the number of contracts and a method to include other missing factors such as distance, complexity, other military construction providers and commanding officer interest, etc. The conclusion of this research is that a more accurate algorithm that includes these missing factors is essential to the safe, efficient and thorough completion of workload accomplished by the EFD/A in support of NAVFAC's mission and ultimate responsibilities of N4.
