  3. I am not a civilian personnel expert! Specific guidance difficult – each location different based on union bargaining agreement Each base CPO functions as it’s own entity Each individual at CPO owns their process Our profession (Airfield Ops) uncommon and complicated Best advice – find a contact and get smart DISCLAIMER Overview Why Civilians? Civilian Role Career Path IPT Results Civilian Management AFIs Employment & Training Appraisals & Awards Medical Dress Codes Unions Discipline Resources

  4. The “Bathtub” During mid-late 90s career field overmanned TPR reduced, early out programs initiated Fallout: 50% or below required supervisors Many facilities reduced operating hours The Need Qualified military controllers to fill AEF taskings Overseas & remote rotation requirements Line controllers to relieve manning shortage Interim/temporary watch supervisors Experienced trainers and mentors WHY CIVILIAN CONTROLLERS?

  5. The Air Force Philosophy #1 priority: produce controllers and supervisors for wartime/contingencies Provide support for day-to-day operations Civilian hires must not impact ability of military controllers to progress and assume leadership positions WHY CIVILIAN CONTROLLERS?

  10. PDs should be coded as “key” Education of controllers/leadership lacking Majority of workforce is/will be retired USAF The majority of the workforce will remain 20 yrs AFI guidance necessary to define: Restrictions to staff/leadership positions Training/termination Medical qualifications Recruiting/retention/careers program Civilian on AFFSA staff IPT RESULTS Overview Why Civilians?

  14. Non-supervisory use as watch supervisors Intermittent, short term use OK If over 30 days, check with CPO Make sure employee receives credit Chief Controller, CATCT, TSN Only when primary not available Non-UMD Positions Take advantage of experience Don’t deny opportunity to military NSPS may make assistant positions attractive CIVILIANS IN STAFF POSITIONS Overview Why Civilians?

  15. Annual Appraisals Easy compared to military system (pass/fail) Same evaluation period (1 Apr-31 May) Varies from base to base/union to union Open, visible system Awards May mirror AF awards (exemplary/meritorious) Monetary incentive awards Letters of appreciation/commendation Annual Airfield Operations Awards If you supervise civilians – know the appraisal & award system!
