Federal Manager's Daily Report

The Air Force has streamlined its process for transferring

its civilian employees–in military lingo, “permanent


change of station”–by having them prepared at the central

Air Force Personnel Center at Randolph AFB, Texas.

The Air Force says that by eliminating extra steps in the

process, the center has shortened the time considerably

for employees to get their needed papers. Managers also

can help expedite the process, the Air Force added, by

“quickly negotiating a realistic reporting date and

returning information forms promptly.”

The center’s goal is to produce orders within seven days

after receiving the necessary documents, a goal it

consistently surpasses, the Air Force says.
