Abstract : The study develops a simple but rather detailed marginal cost model for the Direct Procurement Method (DPM) of moving personal property within the Department of Defense and examines sources for the data elements that could make the model a management tool for the comparison of the DPM and Through Government Bill of Lading (TGBL) systems. The study concludes that the required data elements can be accumulated from sources in the MTMTS purview with minor modifications of the existing reporting structure. (Author)
