This thesis develops an automatic data processing charge back system for the Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center (FNOC) in Monterey, California. A brief introduction to FNOC is followed by a review of the current literature on charge back systems, focusing on the goals and principles of charging, types of charge back systems, hard and soft money, and on the resources that should be charged. Navy guidelines on charge back systems for organizations operating under the Resource Management System are reviewed, and reimbursable costs under these guidelines are identified. FNOC's current algorithm for computer service costs is examined and a new algorithm and rates for billing users are proposed. Possible future directions that charge back may take in the Navy in response to initiatives by the General Accounting Office and the Office of Management and Budget are discussed.
