Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Contents Background -- Obligations for special and incentive pays for active duty personnel have decreased since Fiscal Year 2005, but DOD does not report comparable data for reserve component personnel -- The military services varied in their application of key principles of effective human capital management in S & I pay programs for selected occupations and have not taken steps to fully ensure effectiveness in program design -- Conclusions.
Summary "DOD uses S & I pay programs to compensate and incentivize servicemembers for occupations that are dangerous, less desirable, or require special skills. Senate Report 114-49 included a provision for GAO to review the effectiveness of DOD's S & I pay programs. This report assesses (1) trends in DOD obligations for S & I pay programs for fiscal years 2005 through 2015 and the extent to which DOD reports such obligations department-wide; and (2) the extent to which the military services applied key principles of effective human capital management in the design of S & I pay programs for selected high-skill occupations for fiscal years 2010 through 2015. GAO analyzed DOD S & I pay obligations for fiscal years 2005 through 2015; reviewed a nongeneralizable sample of S & I pay programs for nuclear propulsion, aviation, and cybersecurity occupations, chosen based on their pay programs' attributes; compared DOD and service policies and documents with key principles of effective human capital management; and interviewed DOD officials"--Preliminary page.
