New branch transfer plan for officers set

The Officer Service Management Pilot Program is a marked improvement over previous procedures that required assignment officers to deal with transfer requests on a case-by-case basis. Above, Maj.

New branch transfer plan for officers set

The Army will streamline the switch to new career specialties for most basic-branch captains and majors under a test program to be launched early next year.

Called the Officer Service Management Pilot Program, the new system is a marked improvement over previous procedures that required assignment officers typically captains and majors to deal with transfer requests on a case-by-case basis.

Under the new system, panels of lieutenant colonels who are experienced human resource managers will consider requests quarterly, said Col. Rick Nieberding, chief of Human Resources Commands officer leader development division.

The panels will begin meeting to consider requests as of Feb. 1 at HRC.

The new approach brings transparency to the system and assists officers in making informed choices about requesting a branch or functional area transfer, he said.
