Civilian records can now reflect AF unit awards
/ Published April 06, 2007
WASHINGTON (AFNEWS) -- The Defense Civilian Personnel Data System can now reflect Air Force unit awards, according to Air Force Manpower and Personnel.
Prior to March 30, civilian employees who received unit awards such as the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award, Air Force Organizational Excellence Award and Air Force Chief of Staff Team Excellence Award were unable to have these awards reflected in their official personnel files.
The DCPDS has been updated to include these awards so that civilians who earned them can be recognized for their contributions to their units.
"The Air Force relies upon all elements of the workforce -- active duty, Air Reserve Component, civilian employees and contractors -- to accomplish the mission," said Roger Blanchard, assistant deputy chief of staff, Air Force Manpower and Personnel. "This change simply recognizes and documents the contributions of our civilian employees in achieving organizational success. It is completely consistent with integrated utilization of our total force."
