I was reading in overgrow.com about a possible draft comeback. Get ready boys, pack your bags I'm fleaing to whistler. Anyway it's interesting to think about nonetheless.
Here comes the Draft!!!
28 Million Dollars to get the draft ready by June 15th, 2005.
Read this official budget carefully and you will see that Bush is gearing up the draft--there is no longer any doubt about it. Selective Service must report to Bush on March 31, 2005, that the system is ready for activation within 75 days. So on June 15, 2005, expect the announcement that the first draft lottery since Vietnam will be held for 20 year-olds.
To put this all into context, the SSS has lain basically dormant for decades and now in the 2004 budget, Bush has added $28 million to get the whole thing ready to fly in 2005.
This FY 2004 APP identifies the activities and strategies that will take place during the fiscal year to achieve Agency goals and objectives. It also identifies relevant performance measurement target goals to be achieved. The performance goals for FY 2004 are:
1. Develop an Area Office Prototype Exercise that will test the Health Care Personnel Delivery System (HCPDS) work flows and support programs.
2. Redefine Agency infrastructure based on a Quinquennial Workload Study.
3. Prepare and conduct an Area Office Prototype Exercise which tests the activation process from SSS Lottery input to the issuance of the first Armed Forces Examination Orders.
4. Ensure 90% of people tested are capable of implementing activation procedures.
5. Ensure that 95% of the predefined readiness objectives are attained and validated during an Area Office Prototype Exercise.
6. Train 90% of assigned State Directors (SDs) and Reserve Force
Officers (RFOs) on HCPDS and Timed-Phased Response (TPR)
functions and responsibilities.
7. Attain a 92% or greater compliance rate for men 18 through 25 years old.
8. Attain and appoint Registrars in 85% of the Nationís high schools.
9. Obtain 75% of all registrations electronically.
10. Maintain an average systems change request implementation time of 39 days.
11. Maintain a functional proponent and customer satisfaction level of 87%.
12. Have a telephone call completion rate of 93% or higher.
13. Answer correspondence in less than 10 days.
14. Train 90% of assigned SDs and RFOs on Alternative Service plans and procedures.
ANNUAL PERFORMANCE REPORT
An annual report providing the results of the implementation of these performance measures will be submitted by March 31, 2005. This report will address attained versus planned levels of performance, explain unattained target levels, and identify where and how strategies, performance goals, and performance indicators should be changed to ensure that the SSS reaches its strategic and annual goals and objectives.
