This thesis addresses the per diem funding requirements for units deployed to U.S. bases, Three alternative programs are compared: (1) the current Lodgings Plus policy, (2) AIRPAC's Smart TAD test, and (3) the DoD Task Force to Reengineer Travel recommendation to provide rations in kind. The impacts of these three alternatives on the Type Commanders, travelers, messing facilities, and MWR activities are examined to ensure that the missions can be accomplished while maintaining a high quality of life for the travelers. The primary areas evaluated are galley operations, missed meal reimbursement, and MWR compensation. Findings include that savings can be achieved by adopting the Rations In Kind policy, while still maintaining a high quality of life for the travelers. With the reduction in the DoN budget, some action is required to bridge the predicted shortfall between available fluiding and the budget needed to fully support the travel requirements. This study recommends that AIRPAC's Smart TAD test be modified and expanded to ensure that travel funds are available to support future operational commitments and readiness.
