About the Edition

This thesis investigated the feasibility of implementing a single Navy-wide local financial management system. In this era of downsizing and budget cuts, the government is looking for opportunities to spend funds more efficiently. One initiative which is starting to pay dividends is consolidating finance and accounting systems. The Navy-wide implementation of the Standard Accounting and Reporting System family of accounting systems is nearly complete. This system, however, provides no financial management capability to local managers. These managers must independently organize their local financial management systems. This thesis evaluated the feasibility of taking this consolidation process one step further; to the local level. It used the Fund Administration and Standardized Document Automation System (FASTDATA) local financial management system as a baseline for analysis. It evaluated the system"s capabilities and its acceptability by operational users. It was determined by the research that a single Navy-wide local financial management system is feasible. FASTDATA performed extremely well and users find it to be a very acceptable system. FASTDATA has the potential to fill the role as the Navy- wide local financial management system. However, several technological upgrades will need to be incorporated.
