Navy officer perceptions of the detailing process were investigated by analysis of officer responses to the open-ended portion of the 1980 URL Officer Feedback Survey. Coding results are presented in detail by the respondents perceptions and evaluation of the interactions with the detailer and the outcome of the negotiations, the effects of the new billet assignment on the officer and his or her family, and recommendations offered for modifying and improving the placementassignment process. Officers satisfied with detailing tended to receive billet assignments that were communicated to the detailers as a preference. Officers dissatisfied with detailing tended to receive billet assignments that were not a preference. Both satisfied and dissatisfied officers expressed dissatisfaction with delays in receipt of formal orders to facilitate personal planning. Author
