Abstract:

Several audit reports in recent years have highlighted the Armys inability to support its personnel requirements using analytically based workload forecasts. In the Department of Defenses DOD fiscal years 1997 and 1998 Annual Statements of Assurance, DOD noted difficulties in relating personnel requirements to workload and budget as a material weakness in the Armys manpower requirements determination system. In 1998 we reported on the Armys progress in taking corrective action.5 To resolve deficiencies in its civilian manpower requirements determination process, the Army initiated development of an automated system intended to capture workload data and link it to manpower requirements. In March 1996 the Army provided initial funding to its support contractor and the Navy to develop and implement a modified version of a Navy-developed automated workload performance system for use at Army maintenance depots. In June 1996, a preliminary version of what is now part of the Army Workload and Performance System AWPS was,implemented on a test basis at Corpus Christi Army Depot, one of the Armys five maintenance depots.
