Abstract : The purpose of this report is to provide, in some detail, an explanation of the methodology employed in the computation of enlisted personnel costs. Sources of information have also been indicated and an analysis of problem areas which were encountered in the course of research has been made. Personnel costs discussed in this report are by no means the only costs incurred by the Navy in the personnel costing area. For example, additional study is required in the area of training costs, particularly for the accurate valuation of amortization of expensive training equipment and the costs of on-the-job training required after school to bring personnel in various ratings to an acceptable technical level.
