Certain management practices at the National Institute of Education (NIE) were studied to identify discrepancies or areas of weakness in personnel and manpower functions. A manpower planning system was identified as an area of concern and NIE selected a small outside firm to develop a manpower planning system. Major benefits of a manpower planning system include: justification of the budget based on productivity data, objective allocation of personnel resources, more productive utilization of employees, and improved manpower ceiling management. This system does not fulfill manpower management program criteria. The outside firm relies on unwarranted assumptions, and the proposed system does not provide for an ongoing manpower control reporting system. This system is not being used and no other system has been developed. NIE is moving in the right direction with its emphasis on the development of a manpower planning system.
