ANALYSIS OF REQUIRED FLEET SIZE AND PRIVATE SECTOR COST COMPARISONS FOR THE USCG INLAND CONSTRUCTION TENDER FLEET

This report documents an analysis performed in support of the United States Coast Guard in managing its fleet of construction tenders (WLICs). The project was sponsored by the Coast Guard's Office of Navigation Safety and Waterway Services, Short Range Aids to Navigation Division (G-NSR). Three areas were examined: a determination of the optimum number of WLCIs needed for the construction component of current WLIC work; a comparison of Coast Guard construction tender costs with representative private sector costs; and, an assessment of the mission-related factors concerning WLICs that should be considered before reducing the construction tender fleet or contracting for the construction of fixed aids to navigation.
