Abstract
The May 2023 Office of Personnel Monthly update identified that 35% of Lieutenants and Lieutenant Commanders and 38% of Commanders believe boards do not pick the best candidates (Office of Supply Corps Personnel, 2023b). These statistics question the boards’ use of the communities' values in the O-4, O-5, and O-6 promotion boards. This Capstone Project uses descriptive statistics to compare FY23 promotion results to examine whether they are in line with the Supply Corps community values and convening orders. We use the proportional T-test to determine the statistical significance of the individual variables identified in the Secretary of the Navy convening orders and the Supply Corps community values. As a result, we have determined that the FY23 promotion results were consistent with both the Supply Corps community values and convening orders. Additionally, we also identified statistically significant variables that are not addressed in either document or the subjectivity within the merit reorder process. Future promotion boards can utilize our research to better align messaging and promotion to alleviate the concerns that boards do not pick the best candidates.
