Starting BOS = BOS Non-Payroll Budget (Screen Four - Base Information (Static))
Starting Population = Total Officers + Total Enlisted Personnel + Total Students + Total Civilians
(Screen Four - Base Information (Static))
Total Programmed Installation Population (PIP) Changes = Officer Positions + Enlisted Positions +
Civilian Positions + Student Positions (Screen Six - Base Information (Personnel))
BRAC Personnel Changes = Officer Positions Realigned in - Officer Positions Realigned out + Enlisted
Positions Realigned in - Enlisted Positions Realigned out + Student Positions Realigned in
- Student Positions Realigned out + Civilian Positions Realigned in - Civilian Positions
Realigned out (all in Screen - 3 Movement Table) + Scenario Changes in Office
Positions + Scenario Changes in Enlisted Positions + Scenario Changes in Civilian
Positions (Screen Six - Base Information (Personnel))
Actual BOS = Starting BOS + (Starting BOS/(Start Pop + UCA)) x Total PIP Changes
When a base is closed (ending population = 0):
Revised BOS = 0,
Revised BOS = (Starting BOS + (Starting BOS/(Start Pop + UCA)) x (BRAC Personnel Changes +
Total PIP Change)
Net BOS = Revised BOS - Actual BOS
NOTE: Personnel Changes, whether programmed or BRAC, are cumulative through the year for which
the calculation is being made.
