Aug. 15 – Pulse on AF force management

WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- Featured in this force management update are details regarding changes to the reduction in force board eligibility, enlisted retention and force shaping board results and the ongoing civilian force management programs.

Reduction in force board

Based on voluntary losses, the Air Force no longer needs to include Air Force Medical Service officers in this year’s reduction in force board scheduled to convene at the Air Force Personnel Center in early October.

Status of force management boards

Air Force commanders notified Airmen who met the service’s enlisted retention boards of the results recently. The board retained 5,700 of the 7,121 Airmen reviewed in the ranks of senior airman through senior master sergeant. These numbers represent significant reductions from the matrices originally published, which showed nearly 100,000 eligible Airmen with involuntary targets of more than 20,000. The June boards reviewed enlisted members records, consisting of enlisted performance reports, decorations and a retention recommendation form to select individuals for continued retention and considered those Airmen in over-manned Air Force specialties. Senior NCOs not selected for retention will retire by Dec. 1.

Senior airmen and NCOs not selected for retention will either separate by Jan. 31, 2015, or retire through temporary early retirement authority by Feb. 1, 2015.

Civilian force management - voluntary early retirement authority/voluntary separation incentive pay

The Air Force Personnel Center recently concluded the survey period for VERA/VSIP Round IV, in which 34 installations participated with 23,878 employees surveyed. Round IV was largely focused on Headquarters Air Force-assigned civilian employees, primarily located in the national capital region, and some major command locations targeting a total of 781 surplus positions. Applications are being reviewed and employees approved for VERA/VSIP Round IV are scheduled to be notified this week. The remaining MAJCOMs will participate in a subsequent round. Approved civilians must separate no later than Sep. 30.

Force Shaping Board

The Force Shaping Board is complete and the results are scheduled for approval shortly. Senior raters are expected to receive the results by the end of August.

Continued service in the Guard and Reserve opportunities remain available for Airmen to continue serving while filling critical total force needs in an Air Reserve component. Interested Airmen should first contact their local in-service recruiter for additional information.
