NGeS system simplifies VAFB workflows

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- The 30th Space Communications Squadron instituted a new online computer system called Next Generation eStaffing. The new system will simplify the way Vandenberg conducts workflows.

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- The 30th Space Communications Squadron instituted a new online computer system called Next Generation eStaffing. The new system will simplify the way Vandenberg conducts workflows.

VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- Vandenberg introduced the Next Generation eStaffing online computer system here March 30.

"The system will greatly change the operation of workflows around Vandenberg for the better," said Senior Airman DeShawn Little, a 30th Space Communications Squadron knowledge operation manager. "The system uses a new form of electronic staffing opposed to the old way of using email to send requests out to organizations."

The NGeS system has the capability to digitally create, route and track suspenses and taskings of military organizations.

Peterson Air Force Base was the first installation to experiment with the NGeS system. The purpose for the new system was to create a network dedicated to conducting administrative tasks.

The new system will alleviate confusion that may arise from e-mail trafficking. Everybody in an organization can view suspenses and taskings over the NGeS system, rather than being reliant on email that might never be received.

NGeS system was created to handle administrative actions smoothly, quickly and efficiently. The Air Force Portal's Virtual Military Processing Center also deals with suspenses and taskings, but on an individual level, whereas the new NGeS system is tailored to the organizational level.

"NGeS is going to give the 30th Space Wing unprecedented control when routing taskers, staff summary sheets, publication approval forms and much more," said Tech. Sgt. Stephen Zimmerman, a 30th SCS voice network systems specialist. "I particularly like its ability to digitally track these types of suspenses, which will eliminate such items from being lost in routing or forgotten in an e-mail inbox."

The 30th SCS offers several classes to provide individuals with the system's basic information and how the system can be applied to benefit organizational staffing needs. Classes meet in Building 9360, Room 107B.
