The purpose of this thesis is to provide a unit cost comparative analysis of electricity and water utility services between Navy Public Works Center San Francisco Bay and three local non-Department of Defense public and private enterprises. The research focused primarily on procurement costs and the direct costs of distribution for fiscal years 89. 90 and 91. The latter costs include direct labor, direct material, and contract costs associated with preventative maintenance, repairs and capital improvements. A review of the Navy's facility management strategy, the historical perspective of Navy facilities management, and the impact of Defense Management Review Decisions 967 (consolidation) and 971 (Defense Business Operating Fund) on Public Works San Francisco Bay is also provided. The research is conclusive in comparing procurement costs. While the Navy's water procurement costs were favorable, its electrical procurement costs were found to be 10% to 35% higher on a unit cost basis than the other sites. Electrical and water distribution costs for the Navy were very high in comparison to the other sites, but a number of factors exist which prevent any conclusive findings regarding the Navy's efficiency.
