National Guard Officer Promotions Reform

THE ISSUE
Numerous National Guard officers are waiting in excess of six months for the Defense Department to recognize promotions between O–1 and O–5, as well as between W–1 and W–5.

RECOMMENDATION

Identify efficiencies in the promotions process to ensure officers are:

  • Available for additional responsibility.
  • Compensated according to skill and expertise.
  • Evaluated according to the roles they are filling.
