Abstract:

The Reserve Compensation System Study RCSS was established in 1976 by direction of the President to conduct a comprehensive review of reserve compensation, to evaluate its effectiveness in meeting manpower requirements, and to identify and recommend cost-effective alternatives. This Final Report of the 22-month Study describes an integrated compensation system for the future designed specifically for the Reserve Components. Although there have been many studies of Active Force compensation, this is the first time reserve compensation has ever been studied. The need was to meet quantitative and qualitative manning goals at minimum cost in achieving reserve readiness. Of course, compensation is understood to be only one of the factors available to help achieve that goal. The many noncompensation elements involved were beyond the mandate of this Study.
