This thesis focuses on the French Navy's resource management effects in the areas of ship construction, maintenance and personnel. The central question is whether the French Navy will be able to both upgrade an ageing fleet, and man that projected new fleet with qualified personnel, given defense budget constraints and the fact that naval pay scales are falling below those in the private sector. The thesis concludes that novel approaches to maintenance and upkeep, and a reform of length of service contracts may help the French Navy meet its global missions. The thesis recommended that he French Navy consider greater cooperation with the U.S. Navy so that both navies may avoid wasting time and money investigating maintenance and procurement methods already employed or abandoned by the other. It also recommends greater standardization of responsibilities, methods, and programs in the French ship repair organization.
