Abstract
In response to a perceived decline in the global threat and reduced defense budgets, the Navy has sought to reduce costs and increase efficiency through the concept of regionalization, i.e., the consolidation of support functions for all activities in a specific geographic area. The regionalization concept is currently in various stages of implementation throughout the world, and uses as its basis the concept of "best business practices." A comprehensive means to evaluate the effectiveness of regionalization has not been established; therefore there is no accepted basis upon which to judge the financial benefits of regionalization, the associated financial and readiness costs, or the best approach to implementation. This thesis synthesizes best business practices and ongoing regionalization efforts at the Pacific Northwest, Pacific Southwest, and Hawaii regions and establishes criteria for evaluation of regionalization
