DoD cuts could hit civilians hard
from Defense News
The Pentagon's renewed focus on reining in personnel costs could ripple throughout the U.S. government, resulting in reduced pay and benefits for all federal civilian employees. DoD's new strategy, which President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta unveiled Jan. 5, calls for "reducing the rate of growth of manpower costs" and cutting overhead, headquarters and other support spending, though it does not propose specific cuts. The eight-page strategy, titled "Sustaining U.S. Global Leadership: Priorities for 21st Century Defense," is meant to help guide more than $450 billion in cuts to planned defense spending over the next decade.
