Abstract : This thesis reviews the out-of-service debt with emphasis on the personnel policies driving the debt. Using criteria developed in the thesis, elimination of all debt categories, except reenlistment bonuses was accomplished. A review of the policies governing the Selected Reenlistment Bonus Program was conducted, followed by a cost-benefit analysis of the Program. The results indicate a net benefit from this Program of $48 million for the Navy. The requirements of the Debt Collection Act were then reviewed, and compared to implementation of the Act's provisions by NFC. The impacts on debt collection methods, provided by the Act, were reviewed. The collections under each provision of the Act were identified, with those provisions controlled by the government providing higher returns than those controlled by civilian organizations.
