The Air Force Personnel Center (AFPC) recently concluded the survey period for VERA/VSIP Round IV, in which 35 installations participated with 23,879 employees surveyed. A total of 237 applications have been tentatively approved for retirement or voluntary separation no later than Sep. 30, 2014. Round IV was largely focused on Headquarters Air Force-assigned civilian employees. The remaining MAJCOMs will participate in a subsequent round. The Air Force will use voluntary separation and pre-RIF placements before taking involuntary separation actions. At this time, RIF is planned for Jan. 31, 2015, as a last resort and with some exceptions. AFPC will provide supplemental guidance and instructions for submitting RIF packages to those affected employees.
