In 1989, the Defense Management Review (DMR) recommended the conversion of the Plant Representative Offices of each service into Defense Plant Representative Offices (DPROs) . Once an office has been converted to a DPRO, it will be required to use the automated reporting system, Mechanization of Contract Management Services (MOCAS) , as the organizational management information system. This thesis research was undertaken to recommend the most efficient method for a specific DPRO Commander to gather on-site management information to meet the organizational business goals after the conversion and also support the required use of MOCAS. The results of this research indicate that MOCAS, while a necessary system for strategic management at levels above a DPRO, does not provide the level of detail required by the DPRO manager. Furthermore, the currently used Contract Administration Management Information System (CAMIS) should be maintained and modified for use in conjunction with MOCAS by Navy offices that are converted to DPROs. This will support the new organization while continuing to support the needs of the existing customer base.
