MEMORANDUM FOR SEE DISTRIBUTION
SUBJECT: Consolidation of Operations Centers and Moratorium on Changes
We are steadily working to realign the workload of the two closing Civilian Personnel Operations Centers (CPOCs) into the other five continental United States centers. Since the first iteration of the plan was released in June, we have made a number of adjustments. Our final plan reflects changes approved through August 27, 2001. Final adjustments we made include the following:
- Fort Sam Houston goes to the North Central CPOC (in lieu of the West)
- Fort Detrick and Letterkenny stay with the Northeast (in lieu of the North Central), and
- Rock Island Corps of Engineers, part of the St. Louis Civilian Personnel Advisory Center (CPAC), realigns from the North Central CPOC to the Southwest CPOC in September, as originally planned.
An overview of the final plan is contained in the enclosures to this memorandum.
Enclosure 1 consists of two maps. The first map shows the current distribution of CPOCs and CPACs. The second map shows the workload distribution between the five remaining CPOCs.
Enclosure 2 (five pages) provides a breakout of the CPACs aligned with each CPOC. This listing also identifies the CPAC's parent MACOM, serviced population, and transition date. Listed CPACs that appear to be shaded will be serviced by the same CPOC that currently provides services.
Enclosure 3 summarizes the transition timelines for Phases 1 and 2.
We have posted these enclosures in the Civilian Personnel On Line (CPOL) library at: http://cpol.army.mil/library/.
Effective immediately, I am imposing a moratorium on CPOC servicing changes not already in this approved plan. Changes already in the approved plan are not affected by this moratorium. Actions that are currently on hand in this Headquarters will be processed to the point of decision. Effective dates of approved requests will be delayed until after the moratorium is lifted. The moratorium will remain in effect until at least April 2002.
This moratorium is needed to ensure sufficient time and headquarters resources are available to complete the new alignments. Preparations underway include rerouting/wiring of boxes and identification and shipment of official personnel folders and other related records.
Consistent with existing guidance, major Army Commands may still decide which of their CPACs will provide civilian personnel service to their employees, provided no change in CPOC servicing alignment is required. Applicable guidance relating to servicing arrangements remains in effect.
See my memorandum of June 10, 1999
, regarding Servicing Arrangements. Please use these guidelines for submitting future servicing change requests.
