The Quadrennial Defense Review 1997 recommended reductions of civilian and military personnel associated with infrastructure. The Naval Reserve Force is aggressively pursuing options to reduce excess infrastructure within the Navy. This thesis examines one of Commander Naval Surface Reserve Force's initiatives for reducing the current number of Operating Budget holder's Comptroller Departments without sacrificing efficiency and effectiveness of operations. The central objective of this research was to determine whether excess capacity existed in these Comptroller Departments. To address this issue, interviews were conducted with key financial personnel assigned to the Naval Reserve Force. Additionally, a questionnaire was distributed to fifty percent (5 of 10) of the Comptrollers to obtain information on manpower requirements, department operating procedures, and department task requirements. The primary finding is that Naval Surface Reserve Force Operating Budget holder's comptroller organizations could be reduced from ten to seven and continue to operate efficiently and effectively. The analysis concluded that enough excess capacity exists in the comptroller organizations to manage nine additional Naval Reserve Centers
