Creating a "revolution in business affairs" in DoD by Glenn H Ackerman ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Given the lack of an immediate threat by a superpower, the pressures to fund nondefense programs, and the desire to shrink the deficit, the military's budget, in real terms, is unlikely to increase. Yet, we must fund modernization efforts and new initiatives, such as "the Revolution in Military Affairs." The only source for these funds appears to be the current military infrastructure accounts. Therefore, this paper calls for a "Revolution in Business Affairs" (RBA) to provide an efficient and flexible infrastructure that supports changing military requirements at a price that does not overwhelm modernization efforts. The RBA will achieve this by changing fundamental DoD business process to those that have worked in the private sector
An evaluation of the Navy's URL officer accession programs : the officer procurement, retention, and achievement study by Samuel D Kleinman ( Book )
2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Navy currently procures unrestricted line officers through nine sources which differ widely in their costs and returns. In this paper, we construct a linear programming model that solves for the optimal number of accessions from each source. Life-cycle costs are minimized subject to the constraint that, for each URL designation, the required number of officers at each rank is met. The inputs to the model include the present value of costs, the initial distribution of officers across designations, retention, promotion success, and requirements. The study finds that six of the nine officer accession programs consistently enter the optimal accession program mix. The need for individual programs is linked with certain Navy requirements. The study concludes with three recommendations that should reduce Navy manpower costs. (Author)

An Evaluation of Navy Unrestricted Line Officer Accession Programs by Center for Naval Analyses ( Book )
2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Officers in the unrestricted line are qualified to command at sea. Currently, 60% of Naval officers are in this community. The Navy has a number of alternative ways to secure such officers. These programs range in cost from the apparently expensive Naval Academy to the apparently inexpensive post-college programs, such as Officer Candidate School. The benefit to the Navy also varies with the program. If the expensive precommissioning programs also produce the greatest returns, it may be in the best interest of the Navy to maintain these programs. This paper examines a steady state linear programming model that solves for the optimal number of accessions from each source. Costs are minimized subject to the constraint that, for each Navy occupation, the required number of officers at each rank is met. The inputs to the model include the present value of costs, the initial distribution of officers across occupations, retention, and promotion success. The study finds that some of the expensive precommissioning programs enter the optimal solution

The Effects of Reenlistment Bonuses by Samuel D Kleinman ( Book )
2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the period FY 1966-74, the variable reenlistment bonus (VRB) was the primary policy tool used by the Navy to increase retention in enlisted occupations (ratings). Placing the reenlistment decision in an occupational choice framework, this paper employs regression techniques to analyze the effect of reenlistment bonuses on first-term reenlistments, and moreover on lengths of recommitment and second-term reenlistments, two areas that had not been investigated previously. With ratings as the units of observation, data is analyzed for selected intervals up to FY 1973. The results contained in this paper are applied in the Manpower Compensation Study in determining the cost-effectiveness of using reenlistment bonuses to obtain additional careerists relative to first-termers. The techniques of analysis developed in this paper, as well as the general findings, are equally applicable to the selective reenlistment bonus (SRB)
Military compensation : when 50-year olds decide what 20-year olds want by Samuel D Kleinman ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In this paper CNA evaluates the military compensation system and assess whether it is appropriately structured to support an All-Volunteer Force. They identify the goals that policy-makers are trying to achieve and discuss the extent to which the compensation system helps meet these goals

Racial Differences in Hours Worked in the Market: A Preliminary Report ( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Racial differences in the labor market have been the concern of numerous economic studies in recent years. Invariably, the studies show racial differences to persist even after standardization of the population. It is the intent of this paper to continue the investigation of labor supply differences. Since most households are headed by married couples, the decisions to supply male and female labor are made simultaneously. Whether differences in household market opportunities explain all the differences in market activity or only a portion is examined
