Abstract:

In this paper, we evaluate the military compensation system and assess whether it is appropriately structured to support an All-Volunteer Force. We identify the goals that policy-makers are trying to achieve and discuss the extent to which the compensation system helps meet these goals. In addition, we discuss the extent to which DoD management practices reduce productivity or introduce inefficiencies in the execution of the military mission.
