Abstract : The Navy Regional Data Automation Centers (NARDACS) are to become Navy Industrial Funded (NIF) activities on 1 October 1983. This requires that NARDACs bill customers for all data processing services and this requires the development and implementation of a computer chargeback system whereby the NARDACs are reimbursed by users for the cost of DP services provided. As with any new program, there are many unresolved issues. The potential consequences of the change to NIF accounting and the issues of chargeback approach, costs, benefits, goals and objectives are evaluated and addressed within the context of the defined control structure. The purpose of this thesis is to evaluate the potential usefulness of the system, provide an insight into potential pitfalls, present background information, purpose an implementation plan to assist in setting up a chargeback system and discuss methods to minimize disruption generated by the introduction of a chargeback system.
