Abstract : The National Performance Review (NPR), the Federal Workforce Restructuring Act of 1994, and federal budget decisions for FY 9S and beyond propose and require organizational restructuring and personnel reductions of 272,900 positions, twelve percent of the total federal civilian work force. The purpose of this thesis is to determine the critical mass level of civilian personnel needed to meet the mission and workload reqtiirements of the financial management ftincflon at Naval Air Forces Command, United States Pacific Fleet (COMNAVAIRPAC). This study examines the impact of past and potential future resource restraint, under conditions of increasing workload demand and the capability of the command financial management staff to continue to meet mission requirements. It is the finding of this thesis that the level of financial management personnel at COMNAVAIRPAC has fallen below the critical mass level of staff resources needed. Conclusions on how to better manage the effects of staff reduction to sustain or increase organizational effectiveness and efficiency are presented.
