Abstract : This study is a comparison of the 'DO-IT-YOURSELF' (DITY) Household Goods moving program, including both administrative and payment procedures. The two purposes of this comparison are, firstly, to determine if fraud, waste and abuse exists within the Navy system to a significant degree and, secondly, to provide recommendations for beneficial modification of the Navy program. This study was supported through personal interviews at the various service headquarters and supporting staffs, personal observations of member counseling sessions, and interviews with major civilian contractors involved in this program. Conclusions are drawn based upon personal observations and interviews with planning and operational staffs while taking into consideration manning types and levels, political limitations and realities, fiscal responsibilities, and, most importantly, the possibility of degradation of service to the member.
