The Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) is seeking to simplify procedures and find efficiencies in the Personally Procured Move (PPM) program in response to a larger Department of Defense effort to simplify Defense Travel policy. This thesis describes the weaknesses in the current PPM policies and procedures. An analysis of the PPM policies and procedures concludes that the root cause common to the weaknesses indentified in the current PPM policies is an incentive structure that rewards a service member in the form of a variable monetary incentive based on the amount of weight he/she transports. This thesis proposes a three-step pilot plan to address the weaknesses and to incentivize service members to transport fewer household goods. The first step implements a NAVSUP proposal to provide a financial charge card for service members to charge their transportation expenses. The second step is a shift to a fixed monetary incentive based on the average government contract cost for a Transportation Service Provider to ship household goods. The third step is a shift to a simple Electronic Fund Transfer while maintaining the fixed monetary incentive.
