I just thought that we should start a thread on this since it is the most phenomenally incompetent piece of management I've ever come across. I'm absolutely astounded that DNRes allowed it through (actually, not true when you consider the last incumbent, who was as Mike Catt to the Jonah Lomu of Naval Policy). We're losing the skilled instructor/administrator that keeps the Divisional System monitored, the funds audited and balanced, the advice that part timers need to stay in line with the Regulars' procedures and practice. We're getting an untried and unproven pay and allowances system which hasn't been designed with the vagaries of the reservist in mind, that (if it works) will do about 20% of the functions of the staff it replaces, and which is to be hosted on a system (DII) that won't be in place for several months AFTER JPA comes on line. Anyone who did this in industry would be sacked. Why are we supposed to roll over and accept it?
