Abstract : This Note updates a series of reports by the Department of Defense (DOD) Comptroller's Office that contained cost estimates for military and civil service personnel, per manyear and by paygrade. The Note presents basic estimates of how the DOD budget would be affected by manning changes, then adjusts the estimates for differences between the DOD's budget effects and effects on the federal government's requirements for financing from the civilian sector. Cost effects associated with the use of individual manyears of military or civilian labor are distinguished from effects associated with changing personnel inventory flow patterns that support the change in use. The Note provides data for fiscal year 1986, and also describes estimation procedures that could be used to update the data on a regular basis.
