    REFERENCE: HQ AFPC/DPA 021412Z NOV 06
    THIS MESSAGE DOES NOT APPLY TO THE GUARD AND RESERVE.
    THE PURPOSE OF THIS MESSAGE IS TO ANNOUNCE PCS POLICY CHANGES TO THE
    NOVEMBER 2006 PCS COST SAVINGS INITIATIVES AND TO REITERATE POLICIES
    THAT
    WILL REMAIN THE SAME. THE INFORMATION ADDRESSED IN THIS MESSAGE IS
    TARGETED
    TO MAJCOM A1 STAFFS, MILITARY PERSONNEL SECTIONS (MPS'), COMMANDER
    SUPPORT
    STAFFS (CSS'), WING, GROUP AND SQUADRON COMMANDERS AND IS INCORPORATED
    IN
    THE LATEST REVISION OF 36-2110 CURRENTLY IN COORDINATION.
    THIS MESSAGE IN III PARTS
    PART I - GENERAL INFORMATION
    1. IN NOVEMBER 2006, THE AIR FORCE IMPLEMENTED PCS INITIATIVES TO
    PROMOTE
    AIRMEN AND MISSION STABILITY AND REDUCE THE PCS BUDGET DEFICIT. WE
    ASKED
    FIELD COMMANDERS TO SUPPORT OUR EFFORTS AND RECEIVED THE UTMOST SUPPORT.
    2. DUE TO THE POSITIVE FIELD SUPPORT AND A STABLE PCS BUDGET, WE ARE
    RELAXING SOME PCS POLICIES TO PROVIDE AIRMEN BETTER PCS AND FORCE
    DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES. THE POLICY CHANGES OUTLINED BELOW ARE
    EFFECTIVE
    IMMEDIATELY OR WILL REMAIN THE SAME UNTIL ADVISED OTHERWISE.
    PART II - PCS POLICIES
    1. JOIN SPOUSE (JS).

    A. THE TIME ON STATION (TOS) REQUIRMENT FOR A GOVERNMENT FUNDED JOIN
    SPOUSE ASSIGNMENT IS CHANGED FROM 24 TO 12 MONTHS. THIS POLICY CHANGE
    WILL
    ALSO APPLY TO AIRMEN WITH A PROJECTED PERMISSIVE JS ASSIGNMENT IN THE
    PERSONNEL DATA SYSTEM (PDS) AND WHO HAVE NOT DEPARTED THEIR CURRENT DUTY
    STATION.

    B. ASSIGNMENT TEAMS WILL IDENTIFY AND AUTOMATICALLY CHANGE PROJECTED
    PERMISSIVE JS ASSIGNMENTS LOADED IN THE PDS TO FUNDED JS ASSIGNMENTS AS
    LONG
    AS THE AIRMAN'S PROJECTED DEPARTURE DATE (PDD) IS THE SAME OR AFTER THE
    RELEASE DATE OF THIS AL8106 MESSAGE.
    C. MPS TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION AND ISSUE AMENDMENTS TO PCS ORDERS (IF
    APPLICABLE) UPON RECEIPT OF THE ASSIGNMENT CHANGE RIP WHICH WILL
    INDICATE A
    CHANGE IN FUNDING FOR THE JS ASSIGNMENT.
    2. CONUS ENLISTED NORMAL MANNING FLOOR.
    A. THE CONUS ENLISTED NORMAL MANNING FLOOR IS CHANGED FROM 85% TO
    100%,
    OR THE WORLDWIDE AVERAGE, WHICHEVER IS LESS. THIS CHANGE IN POLICY
    WILL
    FACILITATE APPROVING MORE BASE OF PREFERENCE (BOP) REQUESTS AND
    VOLUNTARY
    STABILIZED BASE ASSIGNMENT PROGRAM (VSBAP) REQUESTS.
    B. FOR MAJCOM CLARIFICATION, THIS POLICY IMPACTS NORMAL CONUS MANNING
    POINTS "A" AND "B."
    3. PCS QUOTA PROCESS.
    A. AFPC/DPA WILL CONTINUE TO ADMINISTER AND MONITOR THE NUMBER OF PCS
    MOVES USING OPERATIONAL AND ROTATIONAL QUOTAS. QUOTAS WILL BE
    ESTABLISHED
    BY FUNCTIONAL AREA AND WILL BE CONSISTENT WITH HISTORICAL PCS MOVEMENT
    PATTERNS. A MONTHLY ACCOUNT OF QUOTAS WILL DETERMINE THE NEED TO MAKE
    ADJUSTMENTS TO PROJECTED PCS MOVES.

    B. THE QUOTA PROCESS WILL APPLY TO AF/DPO, AF/DPE, AF/JAX AND AFPC
    ASSIGNMENT DIVISIONS.
    4. 48 MONTHS TOS MINIMUM FOR CONUS TO CONUS PCS MOVES (OFFICER AND
    ENLISTED).
    A. THIS PROVISION APPLIES TO ENLISTED AIRMEN IN ALL AFSCS AND
    OFFICERS IN
    ONLY THE SUPPORT, JUDGE ADVOCATE (JA), CHAPLAIN, MEDICAL, NON-RATED
    OPERATIONS, AND OFFICERS ASSIGNED TO A RATED STAFF POSITION.
    EXCEPTIONS TO
    THIS POLICY ARE ADDRESSED IN PARAGRAPHS B THROUGH G BELOW.
    B. THE 48 MONTH TOS CONUS TO CONUS POLICY EXCLUDES ALL AIRMEN
    ASSIGNED TO
    A CONUS MANDATORY STABILIZED TOUR IAW WITH AFI

    ORGANIZATION WITH AN ASSIGNMENT AVAILABILITY CODE (AAC) 50 AND A
    MANDATORY
    ROTATION DATE EARLIER THAN 48 MONTHS MAY PCS WITHOUT A TOS WAIVER.
    C. THE 48 MONTH TOS CONUS TO CONUS POLICY EXCLUDES OFFICERS PROJECTED
    IN
    OR FROM A JOINT DUTY ASSIGNMENT LIST (JDAL) BILLET. FOR EXAMPLE,
    OFFICERS
    IN A JDAL BILLET WILL HAVE AN ASSIGNMENT AVAILABILITY CODE (AAC 46) WITH
    A
    ROTATION DATE AS DETERMINED BY AFPC/DPAPPO (NORMALLY 3 YEARS).
    D. THE 48 MONTH TOS CONUS TO CONUS POLICY EXCLUDES OFFICERS PROJECTED
    IN
    OR FROM A COMMAND POSITION FOR WHICH THE OFFICER WAS COMPETITIVELY
    SELECTED
    OR BOARDED.
    E. THE 48 MONTHS TOS CONUS TO CONUS POLICY EXCLUDES RATED OFFICERS
    EXCEPT
    THOSE OFFICERS ASSIGNED TO A RATED STAFF POSITION. THOSE RATED OFFICERS
    IN
    A RATED STAFF POSITION WHO MUST REQUALIFY FOR TRAINING IAW 11-202, VOL I
    AND
    MUST MOVE DUE TO TRAINING REQUIREMENTS, ARE ALSO EXCLUDED FROM THE 48
    MONTHS
    TOS PROVISION.
    F. THE 48 MONTHS TOS CONUS TO CONUS POLICY EXCLUDES ENLISTED FIRST
    TERM
    AIRMEN (FTA) ELIGIBLE FOR A BOP. FTA APPLYING FOR A PCS BOP MUST HAVE
    12
    MONTHS TOS BEFORE PCS DEPARTURE AND MEET THE FTA BOP ELIGIBLITY CRITERIA
    OUTLINED IN AFI 36-2110, ASSIGNMENTS, AND ATTACHMENT 2.
    G. THE 48 MONTHS TOS CONUS TO CONUS POLICY EXCLUDES PIPELINE TRAINING
    STUDENTS (OFFICERS AND ENLISTED).
    H. ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS THE AIR FORCE MAY DIRECT SOME AIRMEN TO
    PCS
    CONUS TO CONUS WITH LESS THAN 48 MONTHS TOS DUE TO MISSION OR FORCE
    DEVELOPMENT REASONS. IN SUCH CASES, TOS WAIVERS WILL BE REQUESTED AND
    PROCESSED IAW AFI 36-2110, PARA 1.4 AND PARA 2.25.3.
    NOTE: THE 48 MONTHS TOS REQUIREMENT DOES NOT APPLY TO PCS MOVES FROM
    CONUS
    TO OVERSEAS. TOS REQUIREMENTS FOR CONUS TO OVERSEAS MOVES REMAIN THE
    SAME

    CONUS
    PCS MOVE.

    B. THIS PROVISION ALSO APPLIES TO CHAPLAINS, JAG CORPS OFFICERS, AND
    MEDICAL OFFICERS IN THE GRADES OF CAPTAIN OR ABOVE WHO HAVE LESS THAN 4
    YEARS COMMISSIONED ACTIVE SERVICE.
    C. THE 36 MONTHS TOS REQUIREMENT EXCLUDES STUDENT OFFICERS IN
    PIPELINE
    TRAINING.
    7. REDUCE DEROS CURTAILMENTS.
    A. AIRMEN ASSIGNED OVERSEAS ARE EXPECTED TO COMPLETE THEIR PRESCRIBED
    OVERSEAS TOURS. AIRMEN ASSIGNED OVERSEAS MUST DEPART DURING THEIR
    DEROS
    MONTH, UNLESS A CURTAILMENT IS IN THE BEST INTEREST OF THE AIR FORCE AND
    AUTHORIZED BY AFPC IAW AFI 36-2110, PARAGRAPH 1.5 AND/OR PARA 3.8.9.

    B. OFFICERS ASSIGNED OVERSEAS WHO ARE PROJECTED TO OR FROM A COMMAND
    POSITION FOR WHICH THE OFFICER WAS COMPETITIVELY SELECTED OR BOARDED MAY
    BE
    DIRECTED TO DEPART THE OVERSEAS AREA EARLIER THAN THE DOD PRESCRIBED
    TOUR
    AND INITIAL DEROS. IN THESE INSTANCES, IF A CURTAILMENT WAIVER IS
    REQUIRED, AFPC WILL INITIATE THE WAIVER TO ALLOW COMMANDERS TO DEPART
    FROM
    THE OVERSEAS AREA EARLIER THAN THEIR DOD PRESCRIBED TOUR AND INITIAL
    DEROS.

    8. ENCOURAGE VOLUNTARY DEROS EXTENSIONS. COMMANDERS SHOULD SUPPORT AND
    ENCOURAGE AIRMEN TO EXTEND THEIR OVERSEAS TOUR DURING THEIR DEROS
    FORECAST
    WINDOW IAW AFI 36-2110, PARA 3.8.3., WHEN THEY CONTINUE TO BE FULLY
    ENGAGED
    IN THE MISSION AND CAN GROW PROFESSIONALLY. PCS MOVES FROM THE OVERSEAS
    AREA ARE COSTLY, AND THEREFORE, BY ENCOURAGING AND APPROVING DEROS
    EXTENSIONS, WE WILL REDUCE THE FREQUENCY AND COST OF PCS MOVES AND
    INCREASE
    AIRMEN AND MISSION STABILITY.
    9. OFFICER TIME IN AREA POLICY AND D.C. TOUR REVIEW. THE TIME IN AREA
    POLICY AND THE D.C. TOUR REVIEW POLICIES WILL CONTINUE TO BE SUSPENDED
    UNTIL
    AFPC/CC/DPA DETERMINES OTHERWISE. THESE POLICIES REQUIRE AFPC
    ASSIGNMENT
    TEAMS TO ELEVATE PCS/PCA ACTIONS RESULTING IN: 1) A CONSECUTIVE
    PCS/PCA
    BETWEEN TWO DUTY STATIONS WITHIN THE SAME LOCAL AREA, OR 2) A RETURN PCS
    TO
    THE SAME LOCATION OR AREA WITHIN A 2 YEAR PERIOD.
    10. TOS OR CURTAILMENT WAIVERS FOR SENIOR AF LEADERS.
    A. TOS OR CURTAILMENT WAIVERS FOR COLONELS AND COLONEL SELECTS WILL
    BE
    SUBMITTED TO AF/DPO FOR CONSIDERATION.

    CMSGT SELECTS WILL BE SUBMITTED TO AF/DPE FOR CONSIDERATION.

    24 months TOS is all you require, unless you did a BOP, which would be 12 months TOS. But since you re-enlisted, you are no longer a FTA, and cannot apply for BOP.

    Yep. You're stuck.

    Why did you post the whole message? Most everyone saw this in their inbox or heard through their chain of command anyway..

    It's sad if you rely on OT for things that are relevant to your military career.

    You should try posting here a bit more before you give your opinion. Not everyone checks email all of the time.

    It does mean you haven't given out your opinion very much, and we haven't had the chance to tell you important things like evan2 did.

    So, yeah. It is. Get used to it. Don't like it?

    How long have you been in?
    I notified my chain of command about the message from this post.
    They had heard nothing of it.
    Same with the uniform board changes.

    6 years. I was notified of these changes by multiple emails, the kind that are triple redundant. Your chain should be notifying YOU of these changes, not the other way around..but that's in a prefect world, and we all know that many things in the AF are broken..

    Which is why it is posted in here, plus this way we get to bitch and gripe about it. some young guys do not understand everything in it and can ask here as some do not like to ask thier own chain of command.

    :mamoru:

    In the 10 years ive been in I havent always gotten the info right away and yes sometimes you get it from 10 different sources. I am deployed right now and a lot of these things do not get to us and I get them from my home unit or via the web.

    I simply said you should post more as you would see the way things tend to work....your opinion while valid is really shit when we know nothing about you.

    This isn't about rank, this is about you being a moron. I feel for the people who are going to be under you.
