8 Accordingly, Fort Bragg has eliminated as many military positions in its TDA activities as possible. In most of the business centers, only the officer in charge is military. It seems likely that this beneficial effect will spread throughout the Army, keeping military personnel out of garrison activities and therefore available to TOE units. Government Civilian Workforce As we had expected, available funds drive the number of personnel in the TDA activities. However, officials we interviewed emphasized that a considerable amount of flexibility exists in the use of those funds in that a vacant high-grade position can be converted to two lower grade positions or vice versa.

15These rates are nominal values based on interviews with well-known commercial firms that offer IT services. 6 Weekly Rates for IT Providers in 2001 Vendor National Firm Number One National Firm Number Two National Firm Number Three Anonymous Vendor, North Carolina Junior Midlevel Senior $1,600 $2,400 $3,200 Average $3,800 $1,200 $2,600 $3,800 SOURCE: Telephone interviews with IT service providers. NOTE: This table assumes a 40-hour work week. A junior-level IT provider works with supervision; a midlevel provider works with limited supervision; and a seniorlevel provider works independently and has extensive knowledge.

16 An Optimization Approach to Workforce Planning for the IT Field ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES TO SHAPING THE WORKFORCE In keeping with the Defense Science Board’s recommendation for shaping the force, several approaches could be taken to address potential Army difficulties in satisfying increased demand for IT services. Among them are the following: • Reconfigure assignments within the existing IT workforce. Although TOE units are considered “warfighters” while personnel in TDA positions provide institutional support, uniformed military personnel currently fill positions in both the TDA and TOE workforces.
