Abstract : Approximately 5,400 active duty Navy officers and 43,000 officer losses over a 10-year period were analyzed in order to develop a methodology for determining officer retention cost effectiveness. Officer investment cost data were developed for unrestricted line officers of the Regular Navy and Naval Reserve assigned to surface, submarine, and aviation duties in ranks of lieutenant commander and below who entered the Navy through the Naval Academy, Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps, Officer Candidate School, Aviation Officer Candidate program, or Naval Aviation Cadet program. The methodology is based upon the proposition that officer retention cost effectiveness can be predicated upon the relationship of established minimum service requirements (MSR) versus officer investment costs as developed in the study.
