Army Reservists

Peacetime Screening to Identify Key Civilian Employees Is Inadequate Gao ID: NSIAD-90-56 February 12, 1990

GAO reviewed the Army's peacetime screening process to determine whether it effectively identified reservists with civilian occupations that would be critical to private-sector operations during a war effort.

GAO found that: (1) the Army did not properly screen reservists who held critical positions in the private sector; (2) many civilian employers were not aware of their opportunity to plan for the loss of mobilized employees or of the military status of their employees; (3) the Army lacked a process to obtain feedback from reservists regarding their employment; and (4) the Department of Defense (DOD) provided no specific guidance for the services to use in screening reservists for nonfederal key employment.
