Defense Management Review Decision (DMRD) 901 requires inventory control points managing Department of Defense (DoD) stock-funded materials to include all the costs of doing business in the stock fund surcharge. The inventory control points will no longer receive direct operational and maintenance (O&M) funding in the defense budget. As a result of DMRD 901, for fiscal year 1991, the Defense Electronics Supply Center (DESC) must recoup, through its operational surcharge, $84.1 million of its own operational coasts and $100.9 million of DLA Headquarters and support activity costs (a total of $181.0 million). The increased surcharge has significantly raised the retail prices DESC's customers must now pay for materials requisitioned. This thesis will present alternative methods for allocating costs by changing the allocation base and examine the use of a fixed order charge to determine their effect on the retail prices of material.
