Cost analysis of U.S. Navy Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief missions
MetadataShow full item record
In the wake of rising costs and limited budgets, the U.S. Navy has been challenged to perform its missions while pursuing opportunities to reduce operating costs. One of those missions that has expanded recently is Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HA/DR). In 2007, the Navy officially added Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief as a core competency to its maritime strategy. From 1970 to 2000, the Navy diverted vessels 366 times for HA/DR operations, as opposed to 22 times for combat operations. With the ever-expanding role of the U.S. Navy in HA/DR operations, it is important to study how the Navy can perform its missions while saving costs. This report serves to provide Navy leadership with policy recommendations that will improve HA/DR mission capabiility while saving costs at the same time.
