Abstract : The model developed for this study is designed to help select the recruit assignment, accession and reenlistment bonus policies that minimize the total cost of meeting LOS-5 requirements. A disaggregate version of this model and a description of the data used to analyze it are presented. This paper focuses on an aggregate version of the model, which uses 7 rating groups. Solving the problem then involves selecting 7 assignment probabilities and an accession level for each quality type, and 6 zone A bonus levels. The GENDET population is constrained to have a zero bonus multiple, since we have no estimate for its responsiveness to pay. Reducing the problem to this size allows us to find optimal values for each variable. All of the interactions between policy variables for the different rating groups can be taken into account.
