The US Military Is Shedding Civilian Jobs. It Has No Idea How Much Money It’s Actually Saving | Defense One

The Defense Department is still not tracking the cost savings it is achieving from cutting civilian employees, according to a new report.

The Pentagon has tracked how many total employees it has cut since fiscal 2012, according to the Government Accountability Office audit, but not how much money it has saved from those efforts. At the same time, the department has tracked its cost savings for its contractor workforce but not the number of full-time equivalents it has successfully trimmed. The 2013 National Defense Authorization Act required Defense to make the reductions and track both figures.
