Abstract : This research evaluates the plant property inventory management process and recommend solutions that would enable accurate accountability of plant property within Navy medical treatment facilities (MTFs). It provides a standard set of revised plant property management procedures to assist local activities comptrollers and equipment managers with day to day operations and to also meet the external requirements of two public laws: Public Law 103-356 and Public Law 101-576, requiring updated financial management and accurate, timely reporting operations. The revised process presented in the thesis incorporates internal controls, quality check points and a standardized format to ensure information accuracy and timeliness. The primary recommendation is to have Bureau of Medicine and Surgery incorporate the revised plant property management process as a claimancy wide instruction or directive for all Medical Treatment Facilities' (MTF's) to follow.
