This thesis provides a cost/benefit analysis and job design for the placement of Naval Construction Force (NCF) Liaison Officer billets on each Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF) staff. The three NEFs are the largest, most capable form of a Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF). Each NEF has been authorized a billet for a Navy Civil Engineer Corps (CEC) Lieutenant as the NCF Liaison Officer. The NCF (or Seabees) have supported the Marine Corps with a wide range of advanced-base construction from the origin of the Seabees during World War II through the Persian Gulf War. Discussion of this support role and the organizational/command relationships between the NCF and the Marine Corps is provided. Discussion of the benefits and costs expected to be realized from those billets will lead to a proposed job design. This design of responsibilities attempts to optimize results from the billets. Job characteristics for work motivation for the officers assigned are also considered.
