Abstract : The final report of the Task Force on Military Personnel Information Management is attached. The Task Force members and the Advisors have unanimously concluded that the present situation, in which the Services develop and maintain multiple Service-unique military personnel and pay systems, has led to significant functional shortcomings (particularly in the Joint arena) and excessive costs for system development and maintenance for the Department of Defense. Moreover, it is clear to the members that there are no technical, functional or programmatic barriers which preclude the realization of a common system that can support all Services and all components. The report, therefore, recommends a single, fully integrated personnel and pay system to be used by all components. The report further includes supporting recommendations on functional and technical criteria for the objective system; a transition strategy; and a management structure. It also recommends assignment of responsibilities for implementation.
