Abstract : Responding to the call for better resource management, improvements in financial procedures and practices, and the reduction of waste within the Defense Department, this thesis presents a review of the Navy's major afloat supply and accounting system. A review of this Shipboard Uniform Automated Data Processing System (SUADPS) was conducted to determine if the system met the objectives of an efficient and effective financial information and control system. A survey of the managers and users of the SUADPS system in relation to financial management aboard several Submarine Tenders was carried out to uncover deficiencies in implementation and recommendations for their improvement or resolution. The thesis findings also provide SUADPS designers and command level management with the user perspectives of SUADPS resource management operations and problems. (Author)
