Updates to Expeditionary Status Coding

This MOA replaces the following MOA:
Updates to Expeditionary Status Coding dated 15 November 2018

    A. HQ AFMC/AlKK briefing to the union 6 February 2018
    B. DoDI 3020.42 Defense Continuity Plan Development, dated 27 April 2011
    C. DoD Expeditionary Civilian (DoD-EC) Codes in the Defense Civilian Personnel Database System (DCPDS) Instruction Guide, dated March 2017

1. The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Council 214 and Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC), hereafter referred to as the Union and Management, hereby enter into this Memorandum of Agreement regarding updating continuity plan/expeditionary status coding of the workforce as it applies to bargaining unit employees covered by the Master Labor Agreement (MLA) between the parties.

2. The Department of Defense has directed all agencies (reference C) to ensure position designations within DODI 3020.42 (reference B) are accurate for positions that fall into the category of "mobility", to include: Key, Emergency Essential (E-E), and Mission Essential (M-E).

3. Employees whose position coding changes will be notified in writing.

4. For employees under DPMAP, employee performance, to include establishment of performance elements and feedback sessions or changes to performance plans within 90 days of the end of the appraisal cycle, will be in accordance with Article 15 of the MLA. Applicable agreements will apply for employees covered by other performance systems.

5. Within 5 workdays of the date of notification to the employee, management will ensure the process to update the records of employees has been initiated to reflect the change of continuity plan/expeditionary status coding. This includes addition or removal of the DD2365, any additions to the PD, and any documentation that is to be added to the Supervisor's Employee Brief (AF Form 971).

6. Affected employees who need to make/change personal arrangements (e.g. child/elder care) may request to use available workplace flexibilities (e.g. schedule changes, unscheduled leave, etc.) to assist until permanent arrangements can be made. Management will maximize the use of available workplace flexibilities during the initial 30 days of this change. Additionally, the employee is allowed to make arrangements such that any work which may be required the employee be called back to the workplace outside of his/her duty hours can be performed by another qualified person until permanent arrangements can be made. Employees will strive to have permanent arrangements made within 30 calendar days from notification. Normally, arrangements will be in place no later than 90 calendar days from notification.

7. The following information will be provided to the local union when a position's coding is changed: employee's name, to/from expeditionary coding change, the employee's series, and the employee's grade. The information will be provided within 10 work days of any coding updates in the future.

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