This thesis used action research to make restructuring recommendations for the Director of Military Operations (Code 04), Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). The restructuring recommendations were provided to assist Code 04 in managing Base Operations Support (BOS) it provides to the Presidio of Monterey (POM) and other activities. Following the closure of Fort Ord, BOS for the POM shifted from Fort Ord to NPS. This created some of the largest and most complex Interservice Support Agreements (ISAs) in DoD. Because of the size and scope of the ISAs, a much more complex organizational relationship exists between Code 04, the POM, and other supported commands. This complex organizational relationship has caused coordination problems and overloaded Code 04. The criteria used to make restructuring recommendations were the cost associated with the restructuring and the congruence of the of the organization structure with its environment. The central recommendation is that NPS include an integrator function under Code 04 to coordinate and control the development and execution of ISAs.
