The MCIS was established to provide the maritime industry with a tool for rapid evaluation of current and proposed seafaring labor contracts during the course of labor negotiations. It is used by the Office of Maritime Manpower, other components of MarAd, other government agencies, and consultants under contract to MarAd, as well as the maritime industry. It has the capability of selecting very general or very detailed data. The input is provided by the Office of Trade Studies and Statistics and by maritime labor unions and management associations. USCG manning data are used to verify the manning data supplied by industry. The major categories of input consist of shipboard ratings, wages, contributions to fringe plans, union management affiliations, manning, and ship characteristics. The principal subject matter covered is maritime seafaring collective bargaining agreements. Output pertains to personnel costs, fleet selection, fleet modification, and fleet characteristics. Lists of complete files or selected parts of any file can be generated in hardcopy via a time-sharing terminal in the conversational mode.
