Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Committee shall provide the Secretary of Defense, through the Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and Readiness), with assistance and advice on matters pertaining to military compensation. More specifically, the Committee shall identify approaches to balance military pay and benefits in sustaining recruitment and retention of high-quality people, as well as a cost-effective and ready military force. The mission of the Committee is to assist and advise the Secretary of Defense on matters relating to military compensation.
How is membership balanced?*The panel consists of distinguished professional from academia, former government employees, and former and current industry leaders with expertise in compensation.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Estimated Number of Meetings per Year - 4 Estimated Total Meetings - 8
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The current military tempo, the war on terrorism, operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, as well as the unprecedented use of all forces requires us to examine whether the proper balance between military pay and benefits for all members is appropriate. In addition, we need to examine whether recent legislative changes to the military compensation system have produced an imbalance in terms of current and deferred compensation, in-kind in comparison to cash compensation and special versus basic pays. The Defense Advisory Committee on Military Compensation will address these issues. This effort is needed to meet the challenges and demands of the 21st century. It is important at the start of the 21st century that we examine a military compensation structure that was constructed in 1948, which was at the end of World War II and at the start of the Cold War. The proposed panel, consisting of university professors, former and current industry leaders, all with expertise in compensation, is unique in its mission and composition and ability to address these issues. No other source is avaliable to tackle such a mission.
Why close or partially close meetings?
Recommendation RemarksThe committe issued no report this fiscal year and it is estimated that it will submit its report by April 30, 2006. The committee has submitted its report to the decision maker and terminated its work on July 11, 2006.
