Summary
I am pleased to provide the preliminary results of our review of DoD's draft general and flag officer requirements report. I will discuss the process DoD and the services used to do their respective studies and areas where we believe the resulting draft DoD report and recommendations could be improved. DoD's draft report asks for more new active and reserve component general and flag officer positions above their current authorizations. I should stress the recommendations are preliminary and do not represent DoD's official position at this time. Most of my remarks will deal with the results of the study of active component requirements. DoD has delayed release of its draft report until sometime after the release of the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) report, which is scheduled for May 15,1997. We hope DoD views the delay as an opportunity to adjust its draft report to address our concerns. With that introduction, let me provide a brief overview of those concerns and then go back and discuss each of them in a little more detail. We have three concerns about DOD'S draft report recommendations. We are concerned that (1) actual requirements are unknown since the service secretaries adjusted their respective service study recommendations on general and flag officer requirements without explanation, (2) 35 general and flag officer requirements were counted twice when OSD developed its draft consolidated recommendations, and (3) the service studies did not fully consider the potential to convert military positions to civilian positions that may not be military essential
