The Department of the Navy (DoN) disposes of large quantities of obsolete personal computers (PCs) annually. The methods of disposal are well regulated and predictable. There seems to be little concern, however, for the financial implications of such practices and if there exists cost-effective uses for obsolete PCs. With initiatives to put new computers in the hands of DoN employees, no initiatives were discovered that make use of used PCs to help meet the need. This thesis explores disposal procedures for obsolete DoN computers and examines if cost-effective alternatives exist. The pending Navy/Marine Corps lntranet (NMCI) initiative is examined (along with PC leasing) since computer disposal could be a significant function in the annual cost of NMCI. Major conclusions: A PC disposal problem will exist under NMCI, existing regulations do not expedite putting used PCs in the hands of DoN employees and there may be uses for obsolete PCs in Navy Recruiting efforts. Major recommendations: Selling or giving obsolete NMCI PCs to DoN employees thereby reducing the cost of NMCl, an interim suggestion to modify our disposal procedures to include PC issue to DoN employees, suggestions for Navy Recruiting to give used PCs to Delayed Entry Program personnel
