The need for communication between an executive level staff and the end users of the manpower requirements determination process has never been greater. However, there is evidence that exterior (outside of the manpower process) influences have affected decisions relative to the officer manpower requirements. By changing requirements to match inventory the signal sent throughout the MPT system to program, recruit, train, educated and distribute personnel has now had its foundation changed to reflect not the future but the present state. With this as a systematic procedure, the process of officer manpower requirements is no longer dynamic, but rather static, and tied directly to the present and externally influenced personnel inventory. There currently exists no formalized and approved process for the development of officer specific manpower requirements. Pieces of the process are evident in the formulation of pay grade specific data and definitions. However, there is no concrete evidence that a system exists on which to base the officer manpower requirement. Formulate and formalize a process for the definition of officer at-sea manpower requirements. This process should be flexible and adaptable to the changing nature of at-sea manpower. This process should be able to meet the demand for review of existing workload on board units at sea but adaptable to describe the duties, responsibilities and workload associated with new classes and ship designs. The output of this process will be the foundation of the officer requirements portion of all manpower documentation for at-sea manpower requirements. Clearly define the process in OPNAVINST 1000.16 series.
