Automated Time Attendance and Production System (ATAAPS) Implementation for Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) JOCAS Users: Supplement to ATAAPS MOA, Dated 7 February 2013

1. The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214 and Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as the Union and Management, and collectively as the Parties, hereby enter into this Memorandum of Agreement regarding implementation of ATAAPS as a replacement for JOCAS as it applies to bargaining unit employees (BUEs) covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA) between the Parties within AFRL.

2. ATAAPS is a web-based application providing online entry, update, concurrence, and certification of time and attendance data for civilian employees of various Department of Defense agencies. On 7 February 2013, the Parties entered into an MOA implementing the general provisions of ATAAPS. AFRL intends to expand the ATAAPS program to employees using JOCAS, and in accordance with the 7 February 2013 MOA further negotiation must occur when converting employees already using automated time attendance systems to ATAAPS, thus necessitating this supplemental MOA.

3. This MOA implements usage of ATAAPS as the preferred system of time attendance tracking for BUEs within AFRL currently using JOCAS.

4. Management agrees to the same provisions found in the 7 February 2013 MOA to employees converting to ATAAPS.

5. Prior to implementation of ATAAPS local AFGE presidents will be afforded the opportunity of a demonstration of ATAAPS, via DCS web conferencing or in person if requested by the local president.

6. All remedies available under the MLA or 5 U.S.C. 71 will remain available to the parties if concerns related to the implementation cannot be cooperatively resolved.
