This study will research growth in the cost of support personnel in a government organization. It will provide a comprehensive, six-year comparison of costs from Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 to 2020. Furthermore, the study will analyze trends, and provide recommendations for best practices and optimum resource allocation.
Significant management concern has arisen due to the recent trend in rising indirect labor costs. A comparison of indirect and overhead to direct labor costs details a growth trend illustrating the uneven development and inefficiencies in the distribution of labor cost in the directorate.
The cost of labor is rising faster than the allocated funding appropriations, and the primary source of this increased cost is indirect, and overhead costs. The ever-increasing ratio of indirect to overhead labor costs can ultimately decrease the directorate's purchasing power in Science and Technology (S&T).
