Past and future : insights for reserve component use( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Quadrennial Defense Review, released in September 2001, expresses concern about the current readiness of its operational units. Post-Cold War downsizing and widespread budget cuts have occurred side by side with intensive deployment and operational-tempo demands-conditions that have translated into a growing reliance on the Reserve Components (RC). The reserves now play a far more substantial role in military contingencies, including peacekeeping and humanitarian missions, and the military's reliance on the reserves is only expected to grow. The QDR's new vision thus raises many questions about the most appropriate balance of capabilities between active and reserve forces and about the possible need for changes in how the Reserve Components are used. All told, the QDR notes that, as the military's transformation takes shape, DoD will continue to rely on reserve forces to help in new restructuring and reorganization opportunities. In particular, the QDR (2001, p. 23) mandated a "comprehensive review of Active and Reserve mix, organization, priority missions, and associated resources."
A review of reports on selected large federal science facilities : management and life-cycle issues( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The federal government operates several large-scale research facilities that enable scientific inquiry in a range of fields, including physics, material sciences, astronomy, and, increasingly, the life sciences. This study was designed to help the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) address the issues surrounding the planning, operation, and management of selected large scientific facilities and to identify key areas in need of oversight or coordination by OSTP. A research team in RAND's Science and Technology Policy Institute reviewed 20 documented studies of major science facilities or guides for their operation and drew conclusions based on the findings and recommendations of the expert panels that produced the reviewed documents. The information presented here represents the research team's synthesis of those documents. The authors identify lessons that would be of value to the federal government as it builds, manages, and retires large scientific facilities
