Abstract
Increasing costs and declining resources have resulted in emphasis placed on evaluation and measurement of effectiveness and efficiency of Morale, Welfare, and Recreation organizations. This thesis addresses the requirement for evaluation, the construction of measures of output, effectiveness, and efficiency and the development of an evaluation program for nonprofit government organizations which support morale, welfare, and recreation. The research involves a review of the literature on management control, development of criteria and measures, and an on-site study of a recreation activity. The author concludes that an evaluation program is essential and makes recommendations for the use of output measures of effectiveness as well as measures of efficiency and financial viability that can be used by management.
