This study examines the level of correlation between the billet requirements for Navy comptrollers and the organizational importance of their respective commands within the Navy hierarchy. Data were collected on the comptroller billets at 148 Navy shore activities which have military comptrollers. Each comptroller billet was ranked on pay grade, required education and experience. Commands were ranked according to overall command characteristics. Pairwise correlations were made of comptroller billets rankings with command rankings. The correlations obtained were not strong. The Navy has not standardized comptroller functions and responsibilities, allowing comptroller positions to evolve separately throughout the Navy. An ongoing trend is for commands to upgrade their requirements for comptroller talent. The lack of standardized billets prevents adequate forecasting of manpower needs.
