Marine Administrative Message 441/99 directed that Marine Corps administration be consolidated above the battalion level. Secondly, Marine Administrative Message 027/04 directed that over 1,300 Marine Corps billets be civilianized. To embrace both of these directives, this thesis has attempted to describe the consolidation of administrative functions within U.S. Marine Forces, Pacific to the installation level and the civilianization all non-inherentlygovernmental structure. The active duty manpower savings would total 120 marines while actually decreasing the cost of the activity of conducting administration for Oahu-based units by $1 .3 million. It is necessary to consolidate if all 120 billets are to be civilianized. If consolidation does not occur, then the Marine Corps administrator billets within the deploying units will remain inherently-governmental and unavailable for conversion. It is only through the centralizing of non-military tasks that civilianization can be optimized. A deployable cell concept is described to support the 14 deploying units from Oahu. This concept will have to dovetail with future technologies to successfully deploy over-the-horizon administrative support.
