This thesis provides an initial cost estimate of outsourcing the academic component of the Information Technology training pipeline, designated as Information Systems Technician (IT) University. This estimate is based on a model of sending the ITs straight from recruit training to civilian community colleges throughout the country. The model builds assumptions into the conduct of this program to facilitate relative cost comparisons between the proposal and the current program. Final results show that it would cost almost three times as much to fund this alternative program. However, discussions of excess capacity at educational institutions and total throughput reveal benefits that may justify the increased cost of an outsourced program
