Abstract : The need exists for major commands (MACOMS) to be able to effectively document their manpower needs by projecting reliable forecasts of their future procurement workload requirements. Presently neither FORSCOM, TRADOC nor DESCOM has a standard method of forecasting future procurement workloads. Sufficient data is not available at TRADOC and DESCOM to support a forecasting model at this time. The development of a forecasting model was found to be feasible at FORSCOM, and such a model was developed that should prove beneficial in forecasting and documenting manpower and resource requirements. Keywords: Procurement, Forecasting, Model, Auto Regressive, Workload planning.
