There has been a great deal of concern within the Navy with regard to the control of the grade structure of civilians. These concerns have manifested themselves in recent times in the form of manpower ceiling allocations, the allocation and control of high grade positions, average grade constraints, promotion restrictions, and hiring freezes. In an attempt to deal with these problems, a promotion policy model PPM has been developed using a version of the Flexible Equal Employment Opportunity Model FEEO of Charnes, Cooper, Lewis, and Niehaus. Two applications of the PPM are presented, one using the graded employees at the Naval Underwater Systems Center NUSC and the other using the graded personnel of the Director of Laboratory Programs which consists of all the Navy RDT and E, N Laboratories commanded by the Chief of Naval Material. The results of the model runs for NUSC and DLP indicate that the manpower goals as given cannot be met without cutting back on promotions. The specific alternatives along with the magnitudes of the promotion reductions suggested by the model are provided in the paper. Author
