Abstract : During Fiscal Years 1974-1981, Navy research and development (R and D) centers were restricted as to the number of high-grade (GS-13 through 15) employees they were allowed to have. To determine the impact to this restriction, the relationship between attrition and promotion was assessed using historical data. Results, which showed that the high-grade limitation is closely related to increases in professional attrition, can be used to make projections of professional attrition and form the basis for expanded analyses of civilian manpower management in the Navy.
