Description: This paper estimates and monetizes the impact of a policy change in the Brazilian Navy’s uniform supply chain. This policy change includes a revision to part of its process flowchart and the creation of a new design for the uniform distribution and selling processes (e-marketplace), by which authorized companies would be able to sell uniforms directly to military personnel. Using a cost-benefit analysis as a systematic quantitative method of assessing the alternative policy and comparing it to the status quo, this thesis projects that the positive impacts are significantly higher than the negative impacts. Even with some intangible aspects to consider, the net benefits are approximately R$73 million in the next five years, which is the project’s time frame. Overall, the analysis suggests that the Brazilian Navy should implement the new policy because it has substantial economic benefits.
