This thesis examines funding sources for two Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) System Centers. SPAWAR System Centers Chesapeake and SPAWAR ITC, located in New Orleans, is the focus of this thesis. This thesis conducts a through review of the current funding structure at each SPAWAR System Center. Funding options available to SPAWAR System Centers are mission funding, which are monies appropriated by Congress, and reimbursable funding, which are monies recovered from customers for services rendered. Strengths and weakness of each funding method are analyzed for potential improvement. Each SPAWAR System Center's business base is also studied in regard to opportunities to grow the existing customer base and to identify potential threats to current market share. After careful examination of existing funding methods and in depth interviews with top financial officials at the different SPAWAR System Centers, change recommendations to existing funding requirements and organizational structure are presented.
