Pulse on Air Force force management

WASHINGTON — This week’s force management update focuses on the latest voluntary separation pay recoupment, Palace Chase and Palace Front opportunities, officer reduction in force boards, quality force review board, voluntary separation pay and civilian force management information in a continued effort to bring Airmen the latest, most accurate information concerning the complex and dynamic force management programs.

Continued service in the Guard and Reserve

Palace Chase and Palace Front offer Airmen a unique opportunity to continue serving while filling critical total force needs in an Air Reserve component. The Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard have numerous positions available. Interested Airmen should first contact their local in-service recruiter for additional information. If unable to locate the local ISR, call 800-257-1212 or navigate to http://afreserve.com for the AFR and call 800-TOGOANG, or navigate to http://GOANG.com/careers for the ANG.

Second temporary early retirement authority window closed

The additional TERA program window closed May 13. This additional window allowed deployed Airmen and those on short tours an opportunity to apply for TERA, as well as officers who required active-duty service commitment waivers that were not previously authorized (i.e., active-duty service commitments associated with rated, health professions and education).

Additional TERA/VSP slated May 22-June 30

An additional TERA and VSP window will be open May 22-June 30 for officers eligible to meet the RIF board and officers who’s Air Force specialty code and year group remain eligible for voluntary force management programs according to the latest officer voluntary matrix.

Officer reduction in force board

The officer RIF board is scheduled to convene at the Air Force Personnel Center on Oct. 1. RIF matrices were posted to myPers last week, giving Airmen a better understanding of who will meet the October board by AFSC and year group.

Quality force review board

The enlisted quality force review board convened last week and runs through May 23. Results are slated to be released to senior raters no later than the end of June. Airmen not selected for retention by the QFRB will separate Sept. 29, or retire, if eligible, Oct. 1.

Officer and enlisted VSP

AFPC received more than 1,600 officer and 7,000 enlisted applications, of which more than 2,800 were ineligible for the program. The VSP window closed May 1 with more than 380 officer and approximately 2,400 enlisted VSP applications approved so far. AFPC will continue to process the remaining applications in all eligible AFSCs, enlisted grades and officer year groups.

Civilian force management – Voluntary early retirement authority/voluntary separation incentive pay

AFPC recently concluded the survey period for VERA/VSIP round 2, in which 31 installations participated, with 497 employees applying for VERA/VSIP. Of those, 59 were approved for voluntary separation on May 31. AFPC will continue to work with the installation civilian personnel sections to assess the need and timing, if necessary, for an additional round of VERA/VSIP.

Resources

Updates to information on force management and other personnel programs will continue to be available on myPers. Airmen can use the new force management graphic on the Air Force Portal which will take them to updated matrices and force management program details.
