Cost and effectiveness estimates form the basis for decisions regarding future Naval forces and weapon systems.” These words, as written in SECNAV Instruction 5223.2, are part of the guiding vision behind the Naval Postgraduate School’s Master of Cost Estimating and Analysis (MCEA) curriculum, a one-of-a-kind degree program wholly focused on developing competent, skilled DOD estimators – an often forgotten player in the acquisition process until cost overruns in the millions of dollars are grabbing headlines across the country.
