DCIPS replaces CIPMS. Until all references can be updated, both terms may appear and are considered interchangeable.
Activity Career Program Managers (ACPMS) serve a vital role in the smooth implementation and success of the Defense Civilian Intelligence Personnel System (DCIPS). There can be DCIPS ACPMs for almost any of Army’s career programs. Most, however, represent Career Program (CP) 35, Intelligence. Unlike other career programs, CP-35 ACPMs have broad programmatic responsibility for DCIPS issues at the activity level in general, as well as the more traditional duties associated with being an ACPM. The duties and responsibilities listed below are intended to clarify and consolidate the more important of these responsibilities.
- Serve as DCIPS focal point at the activity, advising on a wide range of personnel management matters.
- Assist in determining annual CP-35 intern resource needs.
- Seek mentors for, and monitor, CP-35 intern training plans and utilization.
- Publicize training opportunities and career management information.
- Counsel supervisors and employees on training and development opportunities and requirements according to the appropriate Army Civilian Training, Education and Development System (ACTEDS) plan.
- Assist supervisors/managers, if requested, in evaluating employee training/experience to determine obtainment of CP-35 ACTEDS competencies.
- Assist HQDA and MACOM in training and career management projects, as requested.
- Advise (in coordination with servicing CPAC personnel) employees and supervisors on CP-35 ACTEDS requirements.
