Abstract:

The objective of this report is to document development efforts to assess the Navys capability for a personnel geographic stability PEGS program. Work to date has focused on a single rating--boiler technician BT--with particular attention being given to the complexities of the problem. A set of assumptions were developed to form a homesteading strategy based on considerations of Navy-wide manning balance, CNO priority manning objectives, regional billet structure, and sea-shore rotation equilibrium. Because a significant portion of BT shore billets located outside of fleet concentrations are designated CNO priority 2 i.e., they must be filled, personnel in grades E-5 through E-9 are allowed to buy their way into the PEGS program by first serving in a CNO priority 2 billet outside their desired PEGS region. Once the initial priority away shore assignment is met, the PEGS participant receives preferential treatment that is, an attempt is made to give him all future sea and shore duty assignments in a previously agreed upon PEGS region. Results indicate that 42 percent of the E-5--E-9 BT community can be accommodated by the PEGS program while still maintaining an overall Navy-wide manning balance. The results were most sensitive to changes in projected loss rates for PEGS participants. Author
