Abstract : This study recommends changes in policies and actions which will improve Air Force procurement, utilization, and retention of high quality scientific/technical officers. Analyses of studies produced over the past ten years on this subject, and of discussions held with persons responsible for and knowledgeable in this field reveal key issues in which Air Force personnel conditions are seen as liabilities. The issues express values held to be most important to scientific/technical personnel which are believed to be least available in Air Force service. Based on recent changes in technology and military posture, and weighed against the final criterion of Air Force mission accomplishment, the study develops five recommendations, together with initial implementing actions, which can transform the cited liabilities into assets.
