Abstract
The Directorate of Personnel Career Administration Officers (DPCAO) requested a study to compare the current terms of service for Canadian Forces (CF) officers, the Officer Career Development Plan (OCDP), with the previous terms of service for officers. The OCDP was introduced in 1976 to redress certain perceived problems within the officer corps, and introduced the concept of phased retention of officers within the CF. According to Reference 1, some of the problems within the officer corps were: a. high attrition of Regular Officer Training Plan (ROTP) officers at obligatory service); b. rank stagnation at the captain level; c. lack of personal flexibility for officers who did not wish to serve to compulsory release age; d. an excessive average age for junior officers; e. a lack of management flexibility to adjust the personnel inventory to meet new or changing requirements.
