Abstract : The Secretary of Defense is committed to increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the Department of Defense s (DoD) processes and operations. In May 2010, Secretary Gates tasked the Defense Business Board (herein referred to as the Board ) to review current Department policies and practices and identify options to materially reduce overhead and increase the efficiency of the Department s business operations. In response to this tasking, the Chairman of the Board established a Task Group to assess the military retirement system and develop potential alternatives that would enable the system to remain fiscally sustainable while recruiting and retaining the highest performing personnel required for our Nation s defense. A copy of the Terms of Reference outlining the scope and deliverables for the Task Group can be found.
