Abstract : Manpower cost has become a dominant element in the annual defense budget. As these costs have increased over the years, the need for and interest in identification of annual and life cycle manpower costs has also risen. Billet cost models are required for measuring the economic costs of creating or maintaining billets in the Navy's work force and for conducting various cost effectiveness assessments of manpower (active or reserve officer and enlisted, and civil service) and hardware manpower mixes. The objective of this report is to provide hardware developers and manpower managers with specific manpower cost data for Navy officer and enlisted personnel within the Ready Reserve for 1-, 5-, 10-, 15-, and 20-year periods. A Reserve Billet Cost Model has been developed that computes the costs of reserve force billets manned with people having requisite qualifications, in terms of the investment and operational cost to the U.S. Government, for each year in the life cycle of a given billet. The resulting cost data are displayed for enlisted personnel using categories created by combining all ratings into occupational groups, and for officer personnel using functional occupational groups keyed to designators.
