The goal of this project was to analyze the U.S. Coast Guard's Alternate Compliance Program targeted vessel oversight initiatives, and to determine if an effective degree of oversight has been realized. We performed archival research and conducted surveys and interviews to complete our objectives. Our results indicate that improvements to the program's oversight could be achieved by improving the MISLE database, adopting a more sustainable vessel targeting matrix, and increasing inspector training opportunities.
