Abstract:

The USAF Civil Engineering career field requires engineers to fill authorized officer manning positions. The retention problem the Air Force is currently having with junior officers is moving upward in the officer ranks to middle management major and captain positions. The Base Civil Engineers were asked their perceptions, through a survey questionnaire, of how and where the shortage of authorized majors and captains was impacting their base-level Civil Engineering organizations. The population of Civil Engineering organizations included CONUS and overseas operating locations. The conclusions of the research study indicated that the shortage of authorized major positions was concentrated in the Operations Branch. The authorized major position perceived as most severely impacted was the Chief of Operations. The shortage of authorized Civil Engineering captains was perceived to be concentrated in the Engineering and Environmental Planning Branch. Author
