Abstract:

In April 2003, the Bush Administration submitted the Defense Transformation for the 21st Century Act to the 108th U.S. Congress for review and enactment. This act proposed broad changes for the Department of Defense to successfully meet new challenges and new threats for the 21st century. The objective of this Act was to reorganize and streamline civilian personnel management under a new system called the National Security Personnel System NSPS. This paper will compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of the new personnel system NSPS versus the General Schedule GS personnel system currently used. Additionally, the researchers provide eight recommendations to improve the implementation and effectiveness of the NSPS.
