Synopsis

This report analyzes the Reserve Components school system's ability to meet training requirements for noncommissioned officers (NCOs) and for soldiers who are not duty-MOS qualified (DMOSQ), focusing on a prototype reorganized school system in its basel

Excerpt

In recent years, the U.S. Army has launched a series of initiatives to streamline and consolidate its extensive system of schools, covering training institutions that serve both active and reserve forces. Prominent among these initiatives is a prototype regional school system the Army established in the southeastern region of the United States during fiscal years 1994 and 1995, which fundamentally changed the organization and management of Reserve Component Training Institutions run by the Army National Guard (ARNG) and the U.S. Army Reserve (USAR). The objectives of this initiative were to achieve economies and ensure the quality of training, while laying the foundation for a “Total Army School System” (TASS) that would be more efficient and integrated across the Active Component (AC) and the Army's two Reserve Components (RC).

As this reorganization got under way, the RAND Arroyo Center was asked to provide an objective assessment of the performance and efficiency of the Army's system of schools, including the regional prototype. This document presents final results for one of the major areas in the assessment, which examined school system ability to meet training requirements. A companion report, MR-844-A, Resources, Costs, and Efficiency of Training in the Total Army School System, examines resource use and efficiency of training, while MR955-A, Performance and Efficiency of the Total Army School System, provides an overall summary of the Arroyo Center's final results and recommendations.

This report documents the key findings and recommendations from these analyses for historical purposes. Some of the recommenda-
