Questions Continue Over ALC Staffing Plan:

Georgia lawmakers last year engaged the Air Force over its plans to centralize staffing and personnel management functions for the three Air Logistics Centers, eliciting a promise that the service would make no changes until it had completed—and shared—the results of a test program. Now, The Telegraph’s Gene Rector reports that the yearlong test casts doubt that the plan would work. The Telegraph has obtained documents on the test but not from the Air Force, which so far has not released any information. The Air Force was running the test at Tinker AFB, Okla., home to the Oklahoma City ALC, where hiring was to be handled by an Air Force Personnel Center-led task force. According to Rector, documents show it took an average of 53.57 days to complete seven internal placements from April through September. During the same time period, he reports that the Warner Robins ALC in Georgia completed 574 internal placements within an average of 15.35 days.
