The Pacific Missile Test Center, PMTC, is utilized by various DOD components to test and evaluate weapons systems. Range facilities include tracking and surveillance radar, telemetry, communication, recording and command/control/destruct instrumentation systems. PMTC is a component of DOD's Major Range and Test Facility Base and is subject to operating under a uniform Funding Policy. This thesis investigates the proposal made by PMTC's Engineering and Design Department that a surcharge system be developed to levy instrumentation maintenance costs on range users. The COC organization for RDT&E and Weapons Systems Acquisition is discussed in brief. This is followed by a detailed examination of the Uniform Funding Policy and Industrial Maintenance Principles. The PMTC Financial Management System is presented and surcharge implementation problems are identified. A conclusion is made to effectuate a surcharge; and allocation and implementation procedures are introduced.
