Abstract:

In the event of a full mobilization, the Armys civilian workforce would play an important role in carrying out the mission of mobilizing, training, deploying, and sustaining Army tactical forces. The Army estimates that it will need and additional 175,000 civilian employees for this mission. GAO found the the Army needs to improve it pre-mobilization planning if it is to successfully meet the personnel expansion requirement. Also, the Army needs to provide additional guidance to its installations on --identifying key civilian employees who are also reservists, --replacing military retirees and draft eligibles, and --planning for contractors mobilization personnel requirements. The Army has agreed with GAOs recommendations to correct these problems and is taking steps to implement them. Author
