Abstract : An initial requirement was to conduct a survey to determine administrative tasks and actions that are being performed at company level. Over 5200 TOE/TDA company size units were identified (Annex C). From this grouping, in coordination with HQ FORSCOM, six representative companies from Forts Bragg, Hood, and Benning were selected for survey. During this initial evaluation, it was determined that each company administration task was relatively simple, but when all tasks are merged as they are in the real world of the orderly room, the sheer magnitude of their volume adds a dimension of complexity not otherwise apparent. The survey revealed 19 different administrative functions being performed at company level (Annex D). In making this identification, the basic criteria was paperwork. If the performance of a task involved a record, report, or form which was prepared or completed at company level, that task was included. It was determined, in all cases, manpower actually used in the performance of administration tasks at company level exceeded the authorized spaces. On the average, the six companies surveyed are using four clerks in the orderly room although they are each only authorized one. Similarly, unauthorized personnel are used elsewhere in the other aspects of company administration; i.e., supply, mess, and maintenance, but to a lesser degree.
