Administrative Services at the Air Force Personnel Center

Administrative support consists of acquiring administrative supplies for civilian personnel folder maintenance, picking up and delivery of mail for each section, transmitting and receiving messages to Air Force locations as needed.

Postal operations consist of processing of incoming and outgoing mail which includes official and accountable mail, and transmitting and receiving Defense Messaging Systems electronic messages.

Military records management and promotion board support consists of checking in and out officer and senior NCO records to customer, maintaining and updating records, creating records for promotion board review, copying records for customers, and preparing records for shipping as needed.

Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)/Privacy Act (PA) request processing consists of receiving requests for information under the FIOA/PA, must be knowledgeable of case law, processing FOIA appeals, collection of fees for FOIA, requests processed, and certification of systems requiring FOIA/PA information.

Administrative records file plans management consists of ensuring administrative files for all offices in the Personnel Center have proper file plans, training of personnel for maintaining file plans, storage and disposition of records, and performing staff assistance visits to offices where file plans are located.

Forms management consists of administrative form designing from an existing or new requirement, maintaining record sets for developed/redeveloped forms, and preparing reports on form development.

Additionally, our NPA was asked to take on the Worldwide Locator Service for the Air Force Personnel Center at Randolph AFB.
