ineering Command (Seabee Readiness and Logistics, SRL) and Code N44, CBC Port Hueneme CESE Management Branch, need to determine the amount of funding required in order to adequately maintain CESE PWRMS in a Ready-For-Issue (RFI) condition. PWRMS is considered mission essential, but the Project Managers' ability to rapidly respond to a contingency and meet the scheduled mobilization dates are predicated on the ability to get the PWRMS out of storage, mobilized, and transported to the contingency. Therefore, this thesis has direct operational readiness implications. The OMN funding required to maintain CESE PWRMS in a RFI condition was estimated using assumptions for cost of materials, estimates for labor expenditures, and frequency of use of equipment. Recommendations include modifications to the current program's objectives and improvements to issues noted in this study. Areas of further study are provided for improved budgetary decisions.
