History

The Naval Manning Agency was created on 1 July 1996 it oversaw all matters in relation to ensuring sufficient manpower was available on the trained strength at anytime. [1] It was also responsible that this manpower could be effectively deployed to meet any demands the Royal Navy place on it.[1] The agency introduced a formal manning strategy and devised processes for manning the fleet.[1] It created a blue print manning plan, that set out the current deployment of manpower at the time, as well as forecasting future requirements. It introduced initiatives to improve on the system and provided effective manning standards navy wide.[1] The agency was controlled and directed by the Chief Executive, Naval Manning Agency.[1] It existed until 1 April 2004.
