Abstract As globalization and technology change continue at ever increasing rates, the need for continuing to support a strong technical base also increases for the Department of Defense (DoD). The core DoD technical base is a cadre of highly skilled scientists and engineers (S&Es) that are required to remain at the forefront of technology development and awareness. In order to maintain this intellectual core, the DoD depends on accurate and updated workforce data as input for policy and funding decisions needed to meet National Security requirements. In the absence of accurate, reliable and timely workforce data, the DoD is forced to make decisions based on assumptions instead of facts, and respond at the tactical versus strategic level. Dr. John Fischer, Director of the Defense Laboratory Enterprise (DLE), tasked Diligent Innovations to analyze the civilian S&E workforce employed by the DoD laboratories (DoD labs). The objective of this study is to provide the DLE with an assessment of the recent trends and current status of the S&E workforce since the previous study was completed in 2009 by the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA). The principal tasks were to: Determine the size and composition of current civilian S&E workforce in DoD science and technology (S&T) laboratories Identify recent trends in the S&E workforce With the assistance of Ms. Betty Duffield and Mr. Frank Hushek from DoD Civilian Personnel Management Service (CPMS), Diligent Innovations updated the 2009 report by using information provided by the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC).
