Abstract : The purpose of this study is to explore alternative methods of analyzing build-and-lease (charter) versus purchase options for acquiring naval ships. Two methods are developed for calculating the total Federal Government cost of a build-and-lease program. Sensitivity analyses are made to test the cost-effects of differences in Federal Government discount rate policies, mortgage interest rates, percent of the acquisition cost that is mortgaged, and other variables.
