The purpose of this thesis is to examine problems with the Navy's two price aviation depot level repairable (AVDLR) billing and tracking system. These problems include fluctuations in post fiscal year obligation levels and the distortion of flying hour cost reporting due to AVDLR carcass charges and credits received during the expenditure availability periods of the Operations and Maintenance, Navy appropriations used to fund AVDLR purchases. Fluctuations in post fiscal year obligation levels can potentially result in the unintentional over obligation of funds. Distortions in flying hour costs result in inaccurate flying hour program budget requests. This thesis also explored the feasibility of a two price/one bill system of charging for AVDLRs which has often been proposed as a solution to the problem mentioned above. The conclusion reached is that the problems with the two price system have diminished significantly over time. The two price billing system remains the best means of maintaining systems visibility of AVDLR carcasses and holding down overall AVDLR costs.
