Title Do Bonuses Affect Enlistment and Reenlistment.
Publication Date 2010
Media Count 4p
Personal Author J. Chiesa
Abstract Between 2000 and 2008, the Department of Defense (DoD) budget for enlistment and reenlistment bonuses increased substantially, from $266 million to $625 million for enlistment bonuses and from $891 million to $1.4 billion for selective reenlistment bonuses (all figures are in 2008 dollars). These increases raised questions in Congress and at the Government Accountability Office about the scope and efficacy of bonuses. Congress directed DoD to provide information on the number and average amounts of bonuses and on metrics of bonus performance. DoD requested that the RAND National Defense Research Institute (NDRI) conduct analyses enabling a response to the congressional mandate.
