Military Personnel: DOD Needs to Update General and Flag Officer Requirements and Improve Availability of Associated Costs
Brenda S. Farrell (au)
General and flag officers (GFO) are the elite leaders of the U.S. military at the rank of brigadier general and above (for the Army, the Air Force, and the Marine Corps) and rear admiral and above (for the Navy). In 2003, the Dept. of Defense (DOD) determined that GFO requirements -- the number of GFOs DOD components need to fill positions -- were higher than the number of GFOs being authorized by Congress. However, in March 2011, DOD announced plans to eliminate 102 (11%) of GFO positions as part of DOD's efficiencies initiatives. Also, recent investigations of GFO misconduct have placed costs associated with GFOs under increased scrutiny by Congress. This report (1) identifies changes in the population and statutory limits for active duty GFOs relative to other active duty personnel, and the extent to which DOD updated GFO requirements; and (2) assesses what is known about the costs associated with active duty GFOs and their aides and trends in such costs, including trends in GFO compensation costs relative to those of other active duty personnel from FY 2001 through FY 2013. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
