Abstract:

Certain Places Pay CPP is provided to enlisted personnel serving at specified locations outside the contiguous United States as a morale factor and in recognition of the greater-than-normal rigors of service at such locations. Because the CPP rates have not changed since 1949, the pay has declined from about 10 percent of basic pay to less than 2 percent currently. To assist OP-01 in making or supporting informed decisions designed to improve the CPP system, this effort evaluated the cost, effectiveness, and administrative burden of the existing CPP system relative to a set of six alternative pay schemes.
