The United States Navy currently owns 532 foreign-produced equipments and this number is expected to increase as a consequence of U. S. commitments to NATO. Supply support of these equipments is vital to the missions of the Navy. This thesis begins with an examination of the international cooperative programs between the United States and other NATO nations which provide the United States Armed Services with foreign-manufactured equipments. The current procedures of the U. S. Navy's Ship Parts Control Center for determining the initial and follow-on supply support for both U. S. and foreign-manufactured equipments is then reviewed. The problems associated with the support of the 532 foreign equipments are identified. Finally, suggestions for improvements in the present support procedures are made.
