The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness has a new nominee. If the Senate confirms him, former California congressman and Navy veteran Gil Cisneros will face issues of building and maintaining human capital efforts in the department.

  • Katherine Kuzminski, senior fellow and program director of the Military, Veterans and Society Program at the Center for a New American Security, said individuals recruited today are future military leaders, so it is important to have incentives for service members and focus on recruitment and retention early in their careers.
  • Kuzminski said the Defense Department tends to overlook the importance of personnel management as an area of strategic investment.
  • She said it will be good to have a consistent nominee in the office for the under secretary of defense for personnel and readiness, which she said historically has high churn.
