The United States has become the most industrialized nation in the world within the last one hundred years. Along with the proliferation of the industrial revolution at the turn of the century came the complexities of managing the rapid growth of the American economy. Americans witnessed the transformation of small family-owned businesses into large international conglomerates, employing hundreds of thousands of workers. Major factors that affected this dramatic change in the face of our nation were its abundant resources, the imagination and creation of its people, and the form of government that allowed for unimpeded growth. The purpose of this paper is to describe the economic, social, and environmental factors that have influenced the growth of federal regulations and to describe the specific impacts, both positive and negative. In most regulatory concerns, government intervention is in the 'best interest' of the public, therefore, when doing any type of cost analysis, it is extremely difficult to put a dollar value on the 'best interest' of the public. The analyst is merely adding individual speculation when valuing time, life, and the quality of the environment; http://archive.org/details/impactoffederalr00hill; NA

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; Crucial to the Naval mission, but administrative in nature, is the assignment of ship's company to temporary and permanent duty assignments. This study implements a personnel database system for personnel management on a small battle ship. dBASE III is used as a "Database Management Software" and the "System" is implemented as a collection of algorithms providing intelligent decisions about these assignments. It can be supported by an IBM PC/XT (or an IBM PC/XT compatible) microcomputer. The system is designed to provide real time management decision information on crew allocations, as well as required periodic reports, based on current crewmember information.; http://archive.org/details/implementationof00anas; Lieutenant, Hellenic Navy

Português
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; Reliable and readily available MHE is vital to all large scale military supply, maintenance and transportation operations. Therefore, the need to improve the quality of the Navy's MHE fleet cannot be over-emphasized. The current MHE inventory quality is poor and methods for improving this quality are essential. This thesis considers the Navy's forklift trucks because they comprise a large majority of the MHE fleet. A review of current MHE management policies, maintenance concept and plan, and replacement methodology is provided. Next, the current status of Navy forklifts at the eight Naval Supply Centers is analyzed to determine the average age and over-age of MHE, the compliance with DOD MHE replacement criteria, utilization rates and the extent of economically obsolete MHE. The results of this analysis showed that a significant percentage of these trucks are over-aged and economically obsolete. The DOD criteria need to be replaced by the private sector approach for determining the economic life of MHE.; http://archive.org/details/improvingquality00bump; Lieutenant Commander, United States Navy

E organizations currently do not provide for or permit any substantial degree of synergistic teaming, integration, or technology leveraging. As a result, technology development for each of the SR, DD(X), and FCS programs has failed to achieve schedule efficiency, cost effectiveness, and technical proficiency. To enable a successful development of these systems in particular and to prevent DoD system acquisition programs from failing to achieve the aforementioned parameters, a leveraged technology development strategy is needed. This thesis examined the potential for inter-service technology development and identified opportunities to leverage the development of common, critical technologies across the three services within the DoD in general and across the SR, DD(X), and FCS programs in particular. The findings of this study show that through careful planning and coordinated technology transition, DoD acquisition programs can indeed leverage the technology development efforts of the three services within the DoD. The identified technology leveraging opportunities will enable significant cost savings and schedule efficiency to the Space Radar, DD(X), and Future Combat Systems programs and help ensure deployment of these critical defense capabilities; Northrop Grumman Space Technology author (civilian).

Capacity building and sustainment : focusing on the end-state for Homeland Security

Português
CHDS State/Local; Since 9/11, the U.S. has developed policies to counter the terrorist threat. Integral to those policies is preparedness. Homeland Security Presidential Directive 8 states that preparedness will include, "capacity building prevention activities such as information gathering, detection, deterrence, and collaboration related to terrorist attacks." Despite the criticality of capacity building in relation to preparedness, the term is not defined. There has been no discussion on what capacity building means. The term is often equated to federal assistance or used interchangeably with capabilities and capability based planning. Capacity building strategies, however, are distinct and link into wider economic, political, and societal issues. Despite capacity building's criticality to preparedness and sustainment, various or ambiguous interpretations will translate to differences in strategic priorities. This thesis will examine the existing strategies to determine the linkage between capacity building, preparedness, sustainment, capability, capability based planning, and the envisioned end-state. It will also address sustainment issues and homeland security costs based on differing capacity building interpretations. The end product is a capacity building definition that captures the costs and variables with building and sustaining capabilities. This thesis will also demonstrate how capacity building measures serve as the foundational premise for a sound homeland security strategic plan.; Lieutenant Commander...

In order to commit attacks against the U.S. homeland, terrorists must enter the country. Stopping their entry is key to preventing attacks. The 9/11 Commission's Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States, 9/11 and Terrorist Travel, identified pre-9/11 gaps/weaknesses in U.S. immigration, visa, customs, and border security systems. This thesis will consider the implementation of the 9/11 Commission's key recommendations for immigration: 1) provide standardized operational training and additional guidance to immigration, visa, and customs personnel, 2) establish a foreign student visa compliance and tracking system, the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System, (SEVIS), and 3) develop and implement the National Security Exit and Entry Registration System (NSEERS). This thesis will also assess the effectiveness of these policies as counterterror measures to determine if they can stop terrorists from entering the U.S. Bruce Schneier's Beyond Fear: Thinking Sensibly About Security in an Uncertain World provides a five-step model to analyze and evaluate security systems, technologies, and countermeasures. His model will be applied to assess the implementation/effectiveness of the three key recommendations. To effectively establish priorities and efficiently allocate resources...

CHDS State/Local; The author of this thesis contends that the legislative mandate for National Incident Management System compliance has created an efficient and expeditious relationship between civil authorities and military resources, however a lack of information regarding each other's roles and capabilities, coupled with differences in culture, communications, logistics, and command and control structures has resulted in sub-par interaction in actual responses and exercises since the attacks of September 11, 2001. Emergency responders at the local and state level have frequent interaction, but clear protocols, guidelines and exercises are required to create the same level of teamwork with the National Guard. Because of the variety of controlling legislation and political priority governing each state's National Guard, this thesis offers recommendations for improving the interaction between California law enforcement and the California National Guard through a process of creating common response protocols, training, and command and control exercises.; Sheriff, Ventura County Sheriff's Department (CA) author (civilian).

Citizen preparedness campaign : information campaigns increasing citizen preparedness to support creating a 'Culture of Preparedness'

Português
CHDS State/Local; Citizen preparedness has been a requirement since the events of September 11, 2001, and was reinforced as a necessity after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in August 2005. Although National Strategy documents outline the requirement for citizen participation in national preparedness the requirement is through volunteerism using the Citizen Corps. There are currently readiness programs being conducted through the Citizen Corps, Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency but they are not coordinated across the federal state and local or proactive in nature. Proactive Information Campaigns using core and supporting elements can be one methodology to increase citizen preparedness to support the creation of a 'Culture of Preparedness', which includes citizen participation along with the all levels of government and the private sector. Homeland Security stakeholders can use the Information Campaign Model developed to formulate proactive information campaigns to increase citizen preparedness.; Lieutenant Commander (LCDR), US Northern Command (Northcom) author.

A possible solution for the U.S. Navy's addiction to petroleum a business case analysis for transitioning the U. S. Navy from petroleum to synthetic fuel resources

Português
Considering the variable cost of petroleum, it is fiscally prudent for the Department of the Navy (DON) to consider alternative energy sources for propulsion. The cost of petroleum fuels for the DON have increased fifty-five percent from 2004 to 2005 and the increase is equivalent to the annual cost of over seven thousand personnel or three littoral combat ships. For the near-term and mid-term futures (five to thirty years), these alternative energy sources must be compatible with current power systems. The Chief of Naval Operations Strategic Studies Group XXV (SSG) proposed a Navy Synthetic Fuels Program (NSFP) which recommended embarking on a public-private venture to make synthetic fuels to satisfy the U.S. Navy's needs. This thesis examines one aspect of SSG's NSFP by specifically investigating the construction and operating costs of a coal to liquid synthetic fuel plant using domestic coal resources. The purpose of this study is to show the conditions where domestic coal to liquid (CTL) fuel production facility investment is financially practical, as well as those where it is financially impractical. This analysis develops cost estimates, provides business case analysis and reviews global estimates for developing a coal to liquid synthetic fuel production facility. It identifies and qualifies risks and sensitivities. It also examines various projected coal and crude oil markets and how each case influences the decision to pursue a synthetic fuel program. It concludes with a decision matrix comparing the pursuit of a synthetic fuel program with maintaining the status quo of the use of fuel from petroleum.; US Navy (USN) author.

Português
Since September 11, 2001, Pakistan's madrassas have come under scrutiny as sources for the interpretation and propagation of militant versions of Islam. The madrassas are not unique to Pakistan, but are found throughout the Muslim world. However, Pakistan is a particularly interesting case since it was the staging ground for the C.I.A.-led opposition to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. During this period, from 1979--1989, the C.I.A. worked closely with Pakistan's I.S.I. to provide arms and training to holy warriors or mujahideen who crossed the border into Afghanistan to engage Soviet troops. This proxy war was funded by the United States and the Persian Gulf countries, most notably Saudi Arabia. In the years since this war ended, the madrassas funded by Saudi Arabia have continued to promote an austere interpretation of Islam called Wahhabism that has a tendency to produce graduates with few marketable skills and an anti-Western worldview. This thesis attempts to analyze these madrassas from a historical perspective in order to understand their character, purpose and influence, and then offers recommendations for both the United States and Pakistan in dealing with this complex and delicate phenomenon.; US Air Force (USAF) author.

CHDS State/Local; This thesis proposes an adoption of a data schema called RIMS (Requirements and Information Metadata System) developed as a pilot project in the Pittsburgh Field Office of the FBI and sets out to determine if RIMS could be an effective and efficient method to capture, catalogue and retrieve intelligence information within the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). RIMS would enhance the search platform used by FBI analysts and investigators who gather or data mine existing information in furtherance of the FBI's priorities. The use of this coding system can be adapted for use by other U.S. intelligence and law enforcement communities for commonality and uniformity in retrieval, cataloguing, and collecting of intelligence information. The use of this system can be manipulated into a non-classified code for use by state, local, and tribal law enforcement and intelligence entities. Finally, the use of the coding system within the intelligence community will consolidate and integrate information and intelligence and reduce delays in detecting and retrieving pertinent intelligence obtained and shared within the intelligence community.; Supervisory Special Agent (SSA) - Field Intelligence Group (FIG), Federal Bureau of Investigation author (civilian).

This study investigates the effects of personal background characteristics on USMC Delayed Entry Program (DEP) attrition for high school senior and high school graduate recruits and recommends policy changes to decrease DEP attrition rates. Logistic regression models to explain DEP attrition are estimated using data from the USMC Total Force Data Warehouse for all high school graduates and high school seniors who enlisted between fiscal years 2000 and 2005. DEP attrition is regressed on fiscal year, recruiting district, time spent in DEP, separation month, age, gender, AFQT score, race, marital status and dependent status, day of enlistment, and unemployment rate. Model results show that high school seniors are more likely to be DEP losses than high school graduates. Female recruits, single recruits and recruits without dependents show higher attrition rates, as do those with lower AFQT scores. Recruits who enlisted in eastern recruiting districts, who spent longer time in DEP, and who enlisted on the last day or in the last week of the month are more likely to attrite. High School seniors are most likely to attrite in March and April. Unemployment rates were negatively associated with high school graduates' DEP attrition...

CHDS State/Local; During a crisis, one of the most important actions a government (specifically the federal executive branch) should take is to inform the public about the actions being taken to resolve the crisis, or steps the public should take to protect themselves as soon as possible. If the public does not believe the government understands what is occurring, they will not have confidence in the plans being made. Hurricane Katrina was a case in which the federal government failed to inform the public what positive steps it was taking to respond to the incident. As a result, the public perceived that there were no positive steps being taken at all, reducing the trust in the federal government. A notable exception was the Coast Guard, which received much praise in the media and by the public. This paper examines Coast Guard culture, its public affairs program and response frameworks, including the National Response Plan and the National Contingency Plan. Next, timelines of Hurricane Katrina activities show what actions were taken by different agencies, including the Coast Guard. Finally, reasons why the Coast Guard succeeded are given, along with a list of actions other agencies may take to improve their public affairs posture.; Commander...
