Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs System
The Navy Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs (VAMOSC) system displays operating and support (O&S) costs and related information about naval weapon systems, subsystems, and components. It was established in FY92 under the management authority of the Naval Center for Cost Analysis (NCCA). Navy VAMOSC is a data warehouse that contains "Return" direct and indirect O&S costs for ships, Military Sealift Command (MSC) ships, shipboard systems, aircraft, Marine Corps ground combat systems, missiles and torpedoes, and automated information systems (AIS). It summarizes data gathered annually from 125 different sources and displays it as standard cost elements. Standard reports are
published each year.
The Ships Class Average Report [SCAR] for Active Fleet ships is an annual report from the Navy Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs (VAMOSC) program. The class average annual data are presented for each Active Fleet ship within each ship class that was in commission for the entire fiscal year. The Ships Class Average Report displays ship class average level data by individual element in the man-hour categories of Direct Unit Costs, Direct Intermediate Maintenance, Direct Depot Maintenance, and Indirect Operating and Support. The approximately 125 elements in the database are subject to change from year to year.
