JAN. 8'The Navy later this month will post on the Web a questionnaire that could help the service determine ways to improve retention of its enlisted personnel and officers.

The system, known as Argus, will provide Navy leaders with specific information to assess and evaluate factors that influence service members' career decisions.

After reaching career milestones such as promotion, transfer, re-enlistment, retirement or resignation, service members will be required to visit the site, at argus.nprdc.navy.mil, and complete the questionnaire, said Lt. Cmdr. John Banigan, the project officer for development of the system.

The information collected from the Web site will be stored on a database at the Navy Personnel Command's Center for Career Development in Millington, Tenn. The database will generate reports for all levels of Navy leaders to use in making decisions on such issues as pay, benefits, deployment schedules and work hours, Banigan said.

'Once the database is populated, the reports eventually will be put online, so the whole Navy can see the information,' Banigan said.
