In 2003, the Department of Defense (DoD) asked the RAND National Defense Research Institute to undertake an analysis that would provide overarching guidance on officer education and development in joint matters. As part of that effort, the authors of this volume use complex modeling and analysis of data from the 2005 Joint Officer Management Census survey to identify billets that provide and/or require experience in joint matters and therefore might be recommended for inclusion on the Joint Duty Assignment List. They also examine whether there are sufficient numbers of officers with joint expe

The U.S. Congress determines the maximum number of general and flag officers that the military may have by specifying service-specific ceilings. The Defense Dept. has been required to study officer requirements and to recommend changes to the law, if necessary. This interim report on DoD's progress to date reviews DoD's draft recommendations and estimates the cost to implement them, reviews the criteria the services use in doing their studies, compares troop strength to officer requirements, and determines whether certain general or flag officer positions may be candidates for conversion to ci

The Navy manages its officer corps with the primary goal of meeting the national security and military strategies. Within that broad goal, it also manages its officers to provide them with individual opportunities and a reasonable quality of life, in the most cost-effective way, within a framework of law, policy, and practice. The Navy has a number of personnel management tools that it can use to shape the officer corps to meet various goals. If the Navy wishes to alter its personnel management practices, it can do so. However, its ability to change some aspect of management depends on what de

The earlier study determined a range of likely future officer requirements and a number of alternative career management systems. It did not attempt to define a "best" system because it lacked the objectives component

Several recent studies, including a study authorized under the 2002 National Defense Authorization Act, have indicated the need for the Department of Defense (DoD) to update the practice, policy, and law applied to Joint Officer Management (JOM) and Joint Professional Military Education. In 2003, DoD asked the RAND Corporation to undertake an analysis that would provide guidance on officer training and development in joint matters. This work builds on that earlier effort. As a lead-in to this study, the 2005 Joint Officer Management Census survey polled officers serving in billets that were li
