Abstract : The U.S. Navy's procedures for repairing and overhauling Naval vessels in private shipyards in presented as an overview. Particular attention is given to the problems the Navy has experienced in controlling overhaul schedules and costs, and in distinguishing between growth changes and new work changes in overhaul contracts. Recommendations include procedures for standardizing definitions for growth and new work among Navy activities, simplifying current overhaul reporting procedures, and upgrading the quality of personnel assigned to overhaul contract administration functions.(Author)
