To date, most efforts for developing microcomputer based financial applications for small Navy public works departments (PWD's) has occurred using an ad hoc approach, database management software, and independent user development. Recent technological advancements in computer hardware and software provide a cost efficient method of improving the effectiveness of financial decision making in PWD's. This thesis addresses two primary research questions: Can a generally applicable model for financial accounting and reporting be developed for PWD's using a commercially available decision support system generator such as Lotus 1-2-3? Can such a model be used to apply decision support system theory to financial management within the PWD? In this thesis, Lotus 1-2-3 Release 3.0 was used to develop a microcomputer based financial accounting and reporting model for PWD's. A small test data set was used to demonstrate the model and illustrate its use as a decision support system. The software developed in this thesis is available from the thesis advisor upon request.
