The Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (OPNAV) allocates roughly $9OO million annually from its operations and maintenance (O&M) appropriation for facilities maintenance and repair. Annual reports of facility condition, plant value, and maintenance and repair costs provide the basis for apportionment of these funds to each of 15 major Naval organizations (major claimants). Funding shortfalls have contributed to a chronic deferral of maintenance and repair projects. The resulting backlog of critical unfunded requirements for facilities maintained by the O&M appropriation totaled $2 billion at the end of fiscal year 1995. OPNAV's objective is to stabilize or reduce this backlog over time while providing maintenance and repair funding for the major claimants consistent with readiness objectives. This thesis develops a multiobjective, infinite horizon linear program to determine multi-year maintenance and repair funding levels for the major claimants while adhering to annual budget constraints and a standard Navy facility priority system linked to operational readiness. The model produces funding recommendations that are managerially and administratively feasible, and it shows an improved capacity to apportion funding consistently with the existing priority system
