Reward Organizational Thrift

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

On command-level annual personnel reports, include a line to document the percent spent compared to the prior commander. Use an entire line to document unusual circumstances such as major storm events which may necessate extra expenditure. Reward commanders who are thrifty (yet fully accomplish the mission) appropriately, such as by accelerating their career paths. Promote them faster than commanders who spend more for the same mission impact, or commanders who spend so little their mission or personnel suffer.
