The Defense Officer Personnel Management Act of 1980 : a retrospective assessment( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Defense Officer Personnel Management Act (DOPMA), enacted in 1980, replaced an existing patchwork of rules and regulations governing the management of military officers, and updated numerical constraints on the number of field grade officers (0-4 through 0-6) that each service might have. While breaking new ground (permanent grade tables, single promotion system, augmentation of reserve officers into regular status), DOPMA was basically evolutionary, extending the existing paradigm (grade controls, promotion opportunity and timing objectives, up-or-out, and uniformity across the services) that was established after World War II. The authors found that DOPMA was a better static description of the desired officer structure than dynamic management tool. In retrospect, DOPMA could neither handily control the growth in the officer corps in the early part of the 1980s nor flexibly manage the reduction-in-force in the latter part of the decade. In the current dynamic environment, DOPMA cannot meet all its stated objectives. Congress has provided some flexibility in officer management, but in so doing, major tenets of DOPMA have been voided. DOPMA forces choice between grade table violations (law) or diminution of proffered tenure (law) and proffered promotion opportunity/timing (policy, promise) in a period of reductions. Moreover, the implicit assumption that the officer management system should be able to adjust instantaneously (as seen in the way the grade table is implemented) points to the need for further flexibility to meet short-term needs. The authors recommend flexibility through a longer adjustment period for the services to accommodate reductions mandated by the DOPMA grade table
