Abstract : This thesis examines the Military Sealift Command's (MSC's) Financial Management Information System (FMIS) to determine whether the system will adequately support program managers under the MSC's future reinvented organizational structure. Specifically, this thesis sought to determine whether sufficient timely, accurate, and usable information is made available to managers to manage their respective programs. Research data was gathered primarily through interviews with MSC personnel, an examination of MSC's General Ledger module within the FMiS, and an examination of internal financial management reports. The analysis revealed that the General Ledger module of FMIS and the FMIS in general, will, with a few exceptions, adequately support the program managers' future financial management information requirements. Finally, recommendations for additions or improvements are discussed.
