This report precisely defines the phrase DoD civilian environmental work force and discusses various methods that could be used to identify personnel who comprise that work force. It describes three categories of personnel comprising the work force as follows Category 1 comprises personnel assigned any one of 26 occupational specially codes from which environmental professionals are normally drawn Category 2 comprises personnel professional and nonprofessional assigned an occupational specially code other than those in Category 1, who nevertheless spent the majority of their time doing environmental work, and Category 3 comprises personnel assigned a nonprofessional occupational specially code who spend the majority of their time in support roles directly related to environmental programs. The report also describes four methods that could be used to identify total civilian membership of the environmental work force. These methods include developing new occupational specially codes, inserting flags into existing data bases, matching data elements from existing records, and using the skills coding capability of the DoD Civilian Personnel Data System. The report recommends using skills coding as the only feasible solution for near-term application.
