This study was conducted in an effort to develop improved techniques for labor resource analysis and reporting to enhance workload management and planning. A labor resource audit is described that is sufficiently flexible and adaptable to all Navy public works activities. This thesis presents a step-by-step method to analyze, design and implement a prototype labor auditing system for determining and budgeting for proper level, mix, and balance of personnel to support maintenance and repair operations. Specifically, this thesis focused on workload growth, backlog completion time, personnel and funding shortfalls in the area of real property maintenance and repair at the Naval Postgraduate School. Information developed provided insight into: effectively identifying resources to decrease backlog; managing incoming work requests more effectively; and providing financial accountability and credibility at middle management levels.
