Abstract : This thesis examines the internal information management needs of a Marine Corps Facilities Maintenance Department. The processing of information, and its associated work flow and reports, is discussed. The Facilities Maintenance Department is viewed as a Fund Administrator and the information flow is tied to fiscal management. The conclusion reached is that current processes are heavily dependent on manual systems. These manual systems are considered inadequate for eficient management of funds and work progress. Trend information and historical data is difficult to retrieve and managerial feedback is incomplete and untimely. Recommendations are made for modernizing these systems using internal ADP support and interfacing the internal system with Marine Corps-wide systems such as SABRS.
