GAO reviewed the use of military personnel in civilian-type positions by the Coast Guard, focusing on: (1) personnel staffing in district offices; and (2) action taken to convert military billets to civilian positions.

GAO noted: (1) the Coast Guard has converted many of the military billets cited in the previous GAO report to civilian positions; (2) however, GAO believes that this action was not part of a continuing program directed toward making full use of civilian personnel; (3) the general policy of the Coast Guard is to staff with civilians those positions at its shore facilities that do not require military skills or involve military duties; (4) GAO believes, however, that the Coast Guard has not taken effective action to implement this policy; (5) in GAO's opinion 361 civilian-type positions filled by military personnel as of June 30, 1967, could be filled by civilian personnel in accordance with Coast Guard's criteria for using civilians; and (6) GAO estimates that the conversion of the 361 military billets to civilian positions could eventually result in savings exceeding $550,000 annually and would make military personnel available to fill military billets.
