Abstract:

Development and support of military technology relies on knowledge workers with highly specialized training and education. This expertise generally comes from civilian employees and contractors. Human Capital is Essential to the Future Effectiveness of U.S.Naval Forces DON is heavily dependent on technology to achieve a competitive edge against potential adversaries. Development and support of military technology relies on knowledge workers with highly specialized training and education. This expertise generally comes from civilian employees and contractors. Military personnel are typically involved in general leadership, requirements definition, and deploymentoperational management of military personnel and technology. The trend is toward heavy reliance on contractors to perform much of the work performed by civilian employees. While this trend is expected to continue, a critical mass of civilian employee expertise is necessary to protect the governments interests and to ensure effective oversight of contractors work. A process is needed. The Department of the Navy DON requested that the National Academy of Public Administrations Center for Human Resources Management CHRM analyze the departments civilian personnel system. The purpose of the analysis is to determine actions the Department of Navy should take in order to attract and retain a quality civilian workforce capable of providing the human capital needed for the Navy to achieve mission excellence in the year 2020. CHRM obtained and analyzed information from a wide variety of sources within and outside of DON. The input from these sources is summarized in this report, and is described in more detail in report appendices
