Results are reported of an evaluation of the Department of the Navy's implementation of the Department of Defense's policy for accounting for management in Pacific Fleet organizational elements.

The Navy continued to understate the number of personnel performing management headquarters functions, because the current system does not promote the desired accuracy. The criteria were general, but more importantly did not require functional accounting for personnel performing management headquarters tasks as required by the Congress. Accordingly, many personnel devoting less than half their effort to management headquarters functions were not counted.

Matter for Congressional Consideration

  1. Status: Closed

    Comments: Please call 202/512-6100 for additional information.

    Matter: The Secretary of Defense should develop specific criteria to functionally account for personnel performing management headquarters tasks. The Secretary of the Navy should continue to review his headquarters functions and to provide Congress with more accurate information in time for its consideration for the fiscal year 1978 budget.
