This thesis explores the application of the Commercial or Industrial Activities Program to Navy Public Works Centers with particular emphasis on problems encountered at Public Works Center San Francisco Bay. Initial discussion covers the evolution of the program at the national level and addresses some of the current controversy raised with the recently renewed emphasis on the program. Next the development of detailed compliance and reporting procedures are traced through the Department of Defense to the level of the individual PWC. A sample submission prepared by PWC San Francisco Bay is presented to demonstrate some of the problems encountered. Following this are the results of a study to demonstrate the potential effect on PWC San Francisco Bay overhead rates if various functions are contracted as the result of the C/I Program. Conclusions and recommendations are intended to simplify compliance at the PWC level.
