Abstract : The study purpose was to develop an Optimal Organizational Structure and functional Configuration for the HQDA Level Personnel Management System. Three organizational alternatives were developed reflecting: (a) functional restructuring; (b) organizational restructuring; and (c) formation of an Army Personnel Command (APC). These alternatives were reviewed and evaluated by a Senior Officer Action Planning Conference. The consensus of conferees regarding each alternative follows: (a) functional restructuring - the easiest to implement, a modest change, but organizational problems would remain, and alternative would not be perceived as a meaningful change; (b) organizational restructuring - an appropriate course of action, creation of new ODCSPER Directorate for Plans and System heavily supported, transfer of USAFAC to ODCSPER was not necessary; and (c) formation of APC - feasible but no demonstrated desirability, some functions would be facilitated, costs need further study, and mobilization capabilities should be emphasized. PMS2 is basis for current reorganization planning within ODCSPER.
