Abstract : Information systems are an integral part of the United States Navy. The effectiveness of the Navy's administrative/logistic information systems is dependent on the Navy's ability to acquire, develop and maintain them. This thesis will review current acquisition strategy guidelines, policies and the resulting acquistion strategy plans for major Navy administrative/logistic information systems. An attempt will be made to determine changes which can be made to improve the system and enable the Navy to keep pace with technology advances. An administrative/logistic system is defined as a system which deals primarily with adminstrative/logistic functions (e.g. payroll, finance, personnel management, inventory control and supply). From a hardware perspective, adminstrative/logistics systems are associated with .... general purpose, commercially available, mass produced automatic data processing components and the equipment systems created from them.
