With the end of the Cold War the military services have experienced significant cuts in endstrength. Within the Navy, the Civil Engineer Corps (CEC) has also experienced some reductions. This thesis sought to determine how CEC endstrength is derived and whether it declined commensurate with overall naval officer endstrength. The command and billet structures for the CEC in 1986 and 1996 were used to represent the Cold War and Post Cold War respectively. The thesis determined how the CEC has changed and compared these changes to those that occurred in the larger naval officer community. One major finding is that CEC endstrength is indirectly affected by naval officer endstrength and directly affected by the size of the infrastructure. Downsizing the military without downsizing infrastructure results in minor reductions in CEC endstrength. The CEC has experienced a 17 percent reduction in endstrength over the period, with more than 50 percent attributed to the closure of commands. Another finding is that these reductions have not changed the missions of the CEC, construction contract management, facilities maintenance, and advanced base construction
