In this era of scarce resources and intensified interest in reducing governmental spending, organizations such as Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) and Naval Support Activity, Monterey Bay (NSAMB) find themselves under heavy scrutiny to ensure they are managing their commands at the utmost level of efficiency. This study provides a "snapshot" of the functions, structures, costs, resources, and cost saving methods in place for these two co-existing commands in FY98 as a source of information for future benchmarking studies. By examining command flow diagrams, budgetary documents, and manpower listings, and conducting interviews with NPS and NSAMB personnel employed in these areas, the data acquired for this thesis have been molded into a document that provides a baseline for past and future year comparisons. As a result of data comparison, a co-dependent, vertical relationship between NPS and NSAMB was discovered. Functional redundancies in areas such as administration, resource management, and computer support were also identified
