KEY CHALLENGES IN DoD CIVILIAN EDUCATION AND
|•||Customers—the approximately 700,000 civil service employees working for the DoD, their managers, the organizations employing them, and other organizations interested in the skill level of the DoD workforce, and|
|•||Providers—organizations (both within and outside the DoD) providing education, training, and development opportunities related to employment of DoD civilians.1|
Civilian ET&D is embedded within various civilian workforce management systems (e.g., Competitive Service, Excepted Service, and Non-Appropriated Fund employee systems) that must balance the needs of the DoD with the skills of the workforce through classification, recruiting, promotion, training, education, compensation, acculturation, and retention/separation policies. This larger system thus provides an important context for the ET&D system.
This chapter describes DoD civilian ET&D in general, and particularly how the Chancellor's office fits into the DoD ET&D system. We____________________
