Optimizing Total Force Management
/reports/2021/07/optimizing-total-force-management
Manpower management (MM) is the term for the set of processes by which the services and other DOD components define and fund—for each operational unit, command staff, and shore/support organization—the numbers and types of job positions that these activities need to perform their missions. Execution of these MM processes across DOD is governed by a combination of the Office of Secretary of Defense (OSD) and service-specific instructions, directives, and policies. In addition to providing methods and policy for determining the number and types of position, they provide guidance for determining the most appropriate labor source (active military, reserve military, civilians, or contracted services) to fill each position. This study examines the MM processes currently used within each DOD component to determine how they integrate DOD’s workforce mix policy and guidance and to identify impediments that prevent or supersede adherence to this guidance.

Improving the DOD Manpower Management Workforce
/reports/2020/07/improving-the-dod-manpower-management-workforce
The process for determining and validating requirements, associated manpower, and the workforce mix necessary to achieve an organization’s mission requires specialized knowledge, skills, and abilities. Unlike other career fields, however, there is no common training or certification process that ensures minimum standards and competencies among personnel performing manpower functions. This project examines whether the goal of common training and standards for all personnel performing manpower management (MM) functions in DOD is achievable and desirable. We find evidence that there are MM training gaps and inefficiencies in DOD and that, in general, MM functions are similar enough to allow standardized training and education. The data necessary to show that improving the quality of MM workforces will improve MM processes and outcomes is lacking, however. We recommend that DOD collect the necessary data to further examine the impact of MM workforce quality on MM outcomes and processes.

Estimating Effect of Single Salary
/reports/2020/04/estimating-effect-of-single-salary
This report considers one of the potential effects of a DOD move to a single-salary system (SSS): changes in servicemember retention driven by changes in marriage behavior. It analyzes the effects that a move to an SSS is likely to have on the percentage of servicemembers who are married and studies the changes in retention rates and force size that may be induced by any changes in marriage behavior. Our approach includes a review of the literature on the relationships between compensation, marital status, and retention; computation of pay changes under different SSS implementation scenarios; estimation of the effect of marital status on retention using personnel data; and development of a model that can forecast marriage rates and force size over time. Overall, we find that these effects are likely to be small, so there is little need for policy-makers to be concerned about these effects when considering a change to an SSS.
). The literature also provides evidence that marriage positively affects military retention, with the strongest such effects for men who are early in their military careers. Our statistical analysis of Defense Manpower Data Center data confirms the literature’s findings on marriage and military retention, with the largest positive effects for male enlisted, somewhat smaller effects for male officers, and no effect for most female enlisted (with the exception of those in the Army). For female officers, our analysis finds that being married has a negative effect on retention, which is consistent

Alternative Sea Manning Concepts
/reports/2006/alternative-sea-manning-concepts
In this paper, we identify the inventory of alternative sea manning initiatives an d experiments that the Navy has been exploring. We present the evidence regarding how these initiatives work in practice and their relative impact on Sailors in terms of such factors as professional training, turnaround ratios (TARs), and retention. We take a critical look at various initiatives in terms of cost feasibility, the availability of shore billets to support these new manning approaches, the expected impact on sea / shore rotation, and other potential costs and consequences. We collected information on altern ative sea manning initiatives and experiments from existing Navy documents, Navy-sponsored research, and other government reports. We also conducted a series of interviews with key informants in the following commands: the Strategic Planning and Analysis Directorate (N1Z) in the Office of Deputy Chief of Naval Operations (Manpower and Personnel), the Enlisted Distribution Division (PERS-40), the Navy Manpower Analysis Center, the Surface Warfare Directorate (N76), Fleet Forces Command (FFC), Commander Naval Surface Forces Atlantic (CNSL), Commander Naval Surface Forces (CNSF), and the Center for Surface Combat Systems, Dahlgren, Virginia.
