Summary
As the Department of Defense (DoD) continues to downsize its work forces, DoD officials increasingly express concern for maintaining high operational requirements. Using civilians in support positions has been cited as a cost-effective way to help ensure that the best use is made of military personnel. At the request of the Chairman, Subcommittee on Readiness, House Armed Services Committee, GAO examined DoD's guidance and decision-making processes, for determining whether to use civilians or uniformed personnel. Specifically, GAO examined (1) DoD and the military services' effort to replace military personnel in support positions with civilian employees and (2) the adequacy of planning for the future use of civilian employees and contractor personnel to support military operations in combat areas. GAO also followed up on actions taken to correct problems identified after DoD and the services assessed civilian deployments to the Persian Gulf War
