Abstract:

This thesis examines the manpower and billet characteristics of the AcquisitionContract Management community in the U.S. Navy Supply Corps. Emphasis is placed on the subset of officers holding Masters Degrees and those billets requiring a Masters Degree. Low manning in year groups prior to 1972, and the large number of accessions in year group 1977 are in major factors in projecting future manpower profiles. Billet characteristics require careful career planning by officers to enhance opportunities for promotion.
