Abstract:

This report researches the method the Army has chosen to implement a Family Member Employment Assistance FMEA program and compares the method to literature recommendations and experimental data. The Army has chosen to provide assistance by collocating two activities--the installation Civilian Personnel Office CPO and Army Community Service ACS--with very different functions and appoint a lead agency has created confusion and turf battles over which agency is responsible for what. The basic question to be answered is which agency should be the family member advocate and be perceived as the focus for assistance Research for this effort has unequivocably indicated that the installation ACS should be the focal point for FMEA. The installation CPO should also provide assistance to family members where he is allowed to provide special treatment by law, regulation, or policy.
