The purpose of this thesis to provide the Marine Corps with a comprehensive report on pay incentive programs and special pay that were available to Marines from 2000 to 2017. The thesis includes a literature review on economic theory related to pay incentives in the Department of Defense, a summarization of pay incentive categories, a data analysis on take-up rates and average annual amounts at the end of each fiscal year, and a program review of the Foreign Language Proficiency Pay Bonus (FLPB) Program. An understanding of the policies and take-up rates for the various special and incentive pays during this period can assist the Marine Corps in implementing and updating policies that target the intended population group for hard-to-fill assignments and retention in specific military occupational specialties (MOSs). The program review on the FLPB explains how the changes in the pay incentive policy can affect the performance of the eligible population of Marines on the Defense Language Proficiency Test (DLPT). The analysis identifies the Critical Skills Retention Bonus (CSRB) as an incentive pay that the Marine Corps could use to offset any potential shortages in critical MOSs from the implementation of the Blended Retirement System.
