Abstract:

Within Headquarters Marine Corps, there are some organizations that are so internally focused that they lack the means to serve the constituencies for which they were created. These institutions provide employment to government service GS employees in an attempt to overcome existing inefficiencies inherent in their organizational structure. The Marine Corps Office of Legislative Affairs Correspondence OLAC is such an organization. Instead of changing its organization to maximize efficiency, it continues to create additional GS positions to meet demand and, as a result of the workload, is plagued by employee turnover and exorbitant budgetary costs. By outsourcing positions within OLAC, the government can eliminate deficiencies caused by turnover and reduce costs.
