Abstract:

The U.S. Army s civilian workforce is part of the institutional Army, which supports deployable forces in the operational Army. Over the past decade, the Army has transferred as many military billets as possible from the institutional Army to the operating force to support extended deployments. Although the number of civilian personnel in the Army rose between fiscal year FY 2001 and FY 2010, it has since fallen by approximately 8 percent. The Department of Defense DoD has announced plans to scale back its civilian workforce by 5 to 6 percent over the next five years Carter, 2013. The specific manner in which these civilian workforce reductions will be applied whether through base closures, natural attrition, early retirement incentives, or hiring freezes has not been determined.
