Abstract : The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Defense Contract Management Command (DCMC) manages more than 25,000 contractors having almost 375,000 contracts with a value of nearly $850 billion. To accomplish this it has 33 Defense Contract Management Area Offices (DCMAOs) and 51 Defense Plant Representatives Offices (DPROs). Currently, the staffing of these offices (not including the three district headquarters, DCMC International, and DCMC Headquarters at Fort Belvoir) totals approximately 13,900. In today's dynamic government reinvention and DoD downsizing environment, total and individual office staff sizes are being questioned. What is the proper size for efficiently accomplishing this important mission? In order to equitably and consistently determine the staffing needed at each office, DCMC has instituted a Resource Utilization Council (RUC). This council will use analytical models, DCMC Field Organization input, and judgments by its members to determine the individual office as well as the overall staffing level for DCMC field offices. DCMC requested that the DLA Operations Research Office (DORO) develop models for use in the RUC process. The models will serve as a starting point in sefting appropriate Contract Administrative Office (CAO) staffing levels. These models cannot incorporate all the special requirements unique to individual CAOs. Therefore the models will not result in a final staffing level. They do provide a consistent starting point based on the general workload. From this starting point the RUC will then consider other factors that may affect staffing at the CAO, including special requirements or situations. The RUC, in conjunction with input from the District Commanders, will determine final staffing levels.
