Abstract
Every major command within the Department of Defense shares an acute interest in the cost effective utilization of research and development results in the field. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command's awareness of the frequently heard statement from the field, "We tell the laboratory what is needed in the field; why don't they research it?,*' resulted in a long-range program to enhance the organization's transfer of technology. This thesis is an effort to determine the following: Is relevant information being received in the field? How much is received? Why is it not received? The thesis also measures the progress made by NAVFAC over the past decade and examines methods to increase the technology reception capacity of the users. The results of the study strongly indicate laboratory support has steadily improved during the past twelve years and the field organizations that utilize research results have a positive opinion of the laboratory and its research data.
