The purpose of this MBA Project is to review the current budgeting model and existing ship's Operating Target (OPTAR) data for fiscal year (FY) 2006 and 2007. The scope of analysis is limited to the Ticonderoga Class Cruiser (CG) 1B1B OPTAR other consumable (SO) account. The objective of this paper is to analyze the operating costs supporting the funding allocation method used by Commander, Naval Surface Force (CNSF) in support of his stakeholders and to identify and evaluate the underlying costs and cost drivers in relation to each cruiser's location in the Fleet Response Plan (FRP). An analysis was performed by fiscal year, expense element, federal supply group (FSG) and FRP phase to find outliers or anomalies with regard to ships expenditures. Additionally, an examination was done to identify expenditure differences between fleets within the cruiser class squadron (CG CLASSRON) and in an attempt to understand the spending disparity between Pacific (PAC) and Atlantic (LANT) Fleets.
