|제목||A Study for the Efficient Employment of a Civilian Workforce in Maintaining Military Facilities|
<Background and Purpose>
The purpose of this study was to review the progress in the initiative to employ a civilian workforce in maintaining military facilities such as facilities repair, cleaning and weeding & landscaping.
◎ This study was carried out as a progress review of the initiative to employ a civilian workforce for maintaining military facilities, which was recommended by the Commission on Reforming Barracks Culture (2014) and selected then as a task for Defense Reforms 2.0 (under the heading, “expanding service support to replace the groundskeeping mission of active duty service members”).
◎ This study took a comprehensive look at the contracts and practices of more than 80 military units from the past 5 years, with all of their differences (i.e. in unit contract prices, pricing standards, specific tasks for facilities repair, cleaning and weeding & landscaping), to review the progress so far.
Among others, we produced an analysis on the performance of the initiative to hire civilians for military facilities maintenance, a method of appropriately pricing the rates for weeding & landscaping contracts, and a solution to enhance the efficiency of the overall initiative.
◎ We carried out a performance analysis of employing civilians in facilities maintenance by ① tracking the change it brings to the available man-hours of active duty service members; ② surveying servicemembers for satisfaction with the initiative; ③ analyzing the “economic impact” of the initiative as a miscellaneous category of performance by way of securing evidence of its feasibility.
－ If the additional active duty man-hours are committed to purposes like unit training, this initiative will contribute to enhancing combat readiness.
－ We studied service members' satisfaction with the initiative in terms of “service quality” as perceived by the managers (officers & NCOs), and “project value” as perceived by the users (junior enlistees).
◎ We proposed adopting the forestry quotation standards by the Korea Forest Service as the pricing method for weeding & landscaping contracts.
－ The currently used construction quotation standards and the military cost breakdown of the Defense Installation Agency, which is based on the former, resulting in much higher prices than are affordable under the Ministry of National Defense budgeting standards. This has resulted in funding shortages when trying to contract civilian services for military facilities maintenance.
◎ We proposed a way to enhance the overall efficiency of the initiative to employ civilians in military facilities maintenance.
－ Among others, we used our survey analysis results and other previous studies to identify key problems and issues in the initiative to employ civilians in military facilities maintenance and proposed the outlines of a solution.
－ Also, we reviewed the relevant laws, norms, and government directives and proposed updating the Ministry of National Defense Directive for Managing Personnel Including Contracted Government Employees so that civilian workers can be directly hired from the local talent pool for military facilities maintenance.
