  • Civilian employees are vital to the success of this mission. The Corps' objective is to ensure that qualified civilian employees are available in adequate numbers, with the skills to meet worldwide mission requirements during periods of national emergency, mobilization, war, military crisis, or other contingencies
  • Most of the upcoming Afghanistan National SecurityForce (ANSF) facilities construction will be accomplishedby USACE adapting austere-standardKandak facilities [Kandak describes a complex for abattalion size unit] using KSpandesign. K-Span is aparticular type of construction– corrugated metal thatis normally used to constructbuildings that in appearancelook somewhat like half ofa barrel. This type of constructionis more flexible andadaptable than traditionalconstruction. It will providedurable and reliable constructionthat is also Afghanmaintainable. Most importantly,this type of constructionit is expected to reduceconstruction time by up to50 percent.

The Districts rely on local nationals to do the ground work and report back to the District with photos. Helicopters are used frequently to get to and from a site that is safe. Large convoys and armored vehicles are frequently used, with USACE employees embedded within. Typically everyone wears full battle gear outside the wire at all times, usually civilians go along with military personnel who carry weapons.

    45. 45. TaskerThis is the most commonly used method to bring currentUSACE and Department of the Army employees over to theOCO theaters. The hiring official receives a resume, reviewsit, then makes the decision to bring that employee over.Taskers are “details,” which means individuals deploy with thesame title, series, grade and pay they currently have at theirhome duty station assignment. BUILDING STRONG®
    46. 46. Referral List Selections1. (SELECTION FROM A REFERRAL LIST): The vacancy announcements forthese positions ends with “R, R1,etc.,” and they are commonly used to bringcurrent USACE & Department of Army employees over with a temporarypromotion.2. (SELECTION FROM A REFERRAL LIST FOR A REIMBURSABLEDETAIL): The vacancy announcements for these positions ends with“F, FR, etc.” If an employee from another federal agency wishes todeploy, they “must” be selected from a referral list because they cannot beissued straight taskers like USACE & Department of Army employees. TheCPAC must complete an “Interagency agreement” with the losing agency whichallows the employee to deploy. Note: Reimbursable details “cannot” receivepromotions while on our rolls because the position is a “detail”(this is normallyexplained in the vacancy announcement ). BUILDING STRONG®
