Abstract:

This MTS of the 7th QRMCQuadrennial Review of Military compensation presents analyses, findings, and recommendations concerning the allowances system of the seven uniformed services. The QRMCs proposal for a simplified allowances system includes linking food and housing allowances to costs, combining the basic allowance for quarters and the variable housing allowance into a single allowance, and basing that allowance on an external price survey. In addition, the QRMC proposes a new continental United States cost-of-living allowance and briefly reviews thirty-one other allowances.
