Displaced employees can go through a number of personnel actions, depending on the path they choose. One commonly used term is Reduction in Force (RIF), which is a management tool to downsize or close an organization. Human Resource management works with the operational side of the organization to set a date to start downsizing. Employees are given plenty of notice, so they can start making decisions about their future after mission completion. Technical challenges beyond our control don’t enable us to provide you with a precise date of mission completion. What we can provide you is our planning tool which shows approximate dates based on the best information we have at the moment. Due to the sensitivity of this information, you will need to contact your transition specialist for the latest version, which will be periodically updated on SharePoint.
The federal government and Army provide many benefits to employees that are undergoing a downsizing or closure. The guides listed below provide a summary of what those benefits are. The closer we get to an actual approved closure date that is achievable, employees will receive information on when specific benefit options will be offered and in what order. Most of CMA HQ, with the exception of RCMD and Treaty, will be downsized after PCD and BGCA complete their missions. Our timeline also will shift based on how the other timelines shift.
Employees will be given plenty of notice to make decisions about employment. Most employees who want to continue with the federal government will do so through the Priority Placement Program (PPP), whether local or globally. This is the most successful program for the placement of displaced federal employees.
