Abstract : The purpose of the thesis is to show that centralized management concepts increase the efficiency and the effectiveness of the Coast Guard Exchange System. Current exchange operations in areas such as administration, policy, and accounting in a model area were described. The Satellite Exchange System (a centralized management concept) was introduced and data collected from the model exchange area. The concept of the Satellite Exchange System was expanded to all Coast Guard Exchanges in the continental United States and areas in which the satellite concepts could be applied were discussed. Explanations were given as to why concepts are non-applicable in other areas. (Modified author abstract)
