USAG-HI Employee Town Hall

Situation Update

  • In December the Department of the Army notified Congress of 8000+ civilian personnel reductions, effective for FY13
    • IMCOM reduction target is 3,766
    • Garrison reduction target is 104
  • IMCOM directed Garrisons to begin implementing and voluntary retirements and constructive personnel management measures to reduce its staffing to mandated end-strength by the end of September 2012.
  • In early March IMCOM directed submission of RIF Packages from Garrisons not on glide path to achieving mandatory staffing level.
  • Current projections reflect high probability that USAG-HI will meet its mandated staffing level, but will continue to have a significant workload to skill set mismatches.
  • On 2 May IMCOM issued FRAGO 7 to OPORD 12-020 authorizing Garrisons offer another round of VERA/VSIP and the use of Mock RIF in determining the exact positions and personnel that would be impacted if RIF procedures were implemented.

Garrison Mission

USAG Hawaii will conduct a “Mock” Reduction-In-Force 14 May – 8 Jun 2012, for the purpose of identifying

employees that would be impacted in the case of an

official RIF action, assess the cost/benefit of conducting a RIF and to provide the potentially impacted Employee and Management the opportunity to effectively plan for transition support, in the event an official RIF is conducted.

Mission Analysis

  • The Mock RIF will be based on the Garrison Commander’s mission analysis review, that identifies:
  • What positions (i.e., types, numbers, and locations) are excess because of the agency's reduced or revised mission;
  • What positions (i.e., types, numbers, and locations) are still
  • needed to perform the agency's continuing mission;
  • What options are available to avoid involuntary separations; and
  • What is the status of the agency's human resources organization to support this organizational change (including a status review of the agency's personnel records that would be used to conduct a reduction in force or other form of reorganization).

Mock RIF

  • What it is:
    • Method of identifying and correcting problems in records to be used in an actual RIF before the errors impact the employee or the organization.
    • Is a tool to help the organization calculate cost of an official RIF action, i.e. severance pay, lump sum annual leave, etc.
    • A way of accurately identifying employees potentially impacted by a RIF as early as possible.
    • Provides opportunity for potentially impacted employees to participate in priority placement programs.
  • What it isn’t:
    • It is not a RIF.

Mock RIF/RIF Factors

(5 C.F.R. part 351)  

  • The law provides that the RIF regulations must give effect to four retention factors:

(1) Tenure of employment (i.e., type of appointment);

(2) Veterans' preference;

(3) Total creditable Federal civilian and uniformed service; and

(4) Performance ratings.

USAG-HI Employee Town Hall


  • A mock RIF is not a RIF.
  • A mock RIF can be an extremely valuable tool in identifying errors in personnel records before errors negatively impact the employee.
  • All resumes being updated and accurate is critical in obtaining accurate Mock RIF results.
  • A Mock RIF allows leadership to assess the cost benefit of an actual RIF.
  • The results of the Mock RIF will be released only to those potentially impacted employees and their supervisors.
  • We will not lose focus on our commitment to excellence in serving our Units, Soldiers and Families.
