Abstract : The purpose of this thesis to provide the Marine Corps with a comprehensive report on pay incentive programs and special pay that were available to Marines from 2000 to 2017. The thesis includes a literature review on economic theory related to pay incentives in the Department of Defense, a summarization of pay incentive categories, a data analysis on take-up rates and average annual amounts at the end of each fiscal year, and a program review of the Foreign Language Proficiency Pay Bonus (FLPB) Program. An understanding of the policies and take-up rates for the various special and incentive pays during this period can assist the Marine Corps in implementing and updating policies that target the intended population group for hard-to-fill assignments and retention in specific military occupational specialties (MOSs).
