The Naval Construction Force, much like the Department of Defense, is adrift without a formal strategic plan for building an integrated information system. The purpose of this study is to explore and discuss how Strategic Information System Planning (SISP), is used by corporate business to plan integrated information systems The paper examines how SISP is used as means of gaining competitive advantages by corporate business in the marketplace with a view of how it can benefit the military. In addition, this paper will examine business process improvement as a means of making processes more efficient prior to the development of an information system. This research targets the development of information systems by the Naval Construction Force. An ancillary objective of this thesis is to provide the Naval Construction Force with a framework for developing integrated information systems. Throughout this research, the SISP methodology of Information Engineering will be used to make comparisons to corporate business that use this strategy and applications within the Naval Construction Force. This methodology will also be used to determine if this strategy can be tailored to suite the needs of the Naval Construction Force in information system planning.
