Sept. 10 – Pulse on AF force management

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

Military force management: Updated matrices for reduction in force board
Based on voluntary losses, the Air Force no longer needs to include logistics readiness and financial management officers in the 2002 year group or behavioral scientists and physicists in the 2007 year group in this year’s reduction in force board. The board is scheduled to convene at the Air Force Personnel Center in early October. Updated officer RIF and voluntary force management matrices have been posted.

The total target for these boards is now reduced to 413 with approximately 2,591 eligible. The numbers represent additional reduced eligibles and targets from the last matrices posted in early August, which showed approximately 2,800 eligible officers with a target of 468.

Civilian force management: Voluntary early retirement authority/voluntary separation incentive pay
The AFPC recently concluded the survey period for VERA/VSIP Round IV, in which 35 installations participated with 23,879 employees surveyed. A total of 237 applications have been tentatively approved for retirement or voluntary separation no later than Sep. 30, 2014. 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. The remaining MAJCOMs will participate in a subsequent round.

The Air Force will use voluntary separation and pre-RIF placements before taking involuntary separation actions. At this time, RIF is planned for Jan. 31, 2015, as a last resort. This does not include installations where MAJCOM HQs reside (e.g. Langley or Scott AFBs), or any positions impacted by the Air Force Installation Mission Support Center stand-up. AFPC will provide supplemental guidance and instructions for submitting RIF packages to those affected employees.

Force shaping board
Air Force commanders notified Airmen who met the service’s force shaping board of the results recently. The board retained 766 of the 980 eligible officers (first lieutenant through captain) across 13 Air Force specialty codes. These numbers represent significant reductions from the matrices originally published, which showed more than 4,600 eligible officers with involuntary targets at more than 1,100. Officers not selected for retention will separate by Dec. 31.

Continued service in the Air National Guard and Air Force 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. To view the Air Force Reserve website, click here, or call 800-257-1212.
