  12. National Operations Center • The NOC Operations: • 7:30 AM – 4:30 PM Monday – Friday • An “On Call” duty officer is available by cell phone after hours, weekends, and holidays • Emergency or urgent mission matters only • During high tempo, the NOC can be manned 24/7

  13. National Operations Center • What does the NOC do? • Mission Coordination • Mission Funding • Mission Reporting • Mission Reimbursement

  14. National Operations Center • Air Force SAR Missions • AFRCC or JRCC assigns missions directly to CAP Wing

  15. Air Force Training Missions • CAP Wing enters the mission request • Wing, State Director, and Liaison Region Approvals

  16. Monthly “A” and “B” Missions • Approved by the State Director each month

  17. Misc. Corporate Flights • Cadet training, proficiency flights, meetings, etc. • Mission is automatically set up for each fiscal year

  18. National Operations Center • All other missions • Start with a request • The customer sends a request for CAP support • Wing enters mission information into WMIRS

  19. National Operations Center • The coordination begins. • Can this be an Air Force Assigned Mission (AFAM)? • Provides FECA/FTCA protections for CAP Members and CAP • Is there “Federal Interest?”

  20. Federal Interest • Is it a federal agency? • Federal Agencies must be an AFAM

  21. Federal Interest • Is it Drug Interdiction (CD)? • Drug Interdiction must be an AFAM

  22. National Operations Center For State requests, does the state provide an appropriation to CAP?

  23. National Operations Center • Federal Interest • State requests • Counties must request through the state.

  24. National Operations Center

  25. National Operations Center • Not a Federal Agency and no Federal Interest? • Corporate Mission? • NOC reviews and Wing Commander approves. • AIR Transportation? • Law Enforcement?

  26. National Operations Center • Federal Interest, but who pays? • Must be determined before turning a prop • CAP appropriated money for SAR, Drug Interdiction, and Air Force support.

  27. National Operations Center • The Economy Act • Requires other Federal Agencies to pay for CAP support • Payment usually by Military Interdepartmental Purchase Request (MIPR) • Must be loaded to the Cooperative Agreement before the mission can start

  28. National Operations Center • For disaster missions, the process is very quick on the Air Force side. • Contracting office is alerted to a High Priority document

  29. National Operations Center • AFAM Approval • Disaster or Emergency • ATO Change request sent to Air Force with request & immediate sortie data (next 24 hours at least) • Things can escalate quickly

  30. National Operations Center • If the mission is not urgent: • Approval is through the ATO cycle. • What is the ATO cycle?

  31. National Operations Center • Normal ATO cycle: • Operations on Wednesday – Friday • Must be in WMIRS by 0630 Central time Monday • Operations on Saturday – Tuesday • Must be in WMIRS by 0630 Central time Thursday

  32. National Operations Center • Things that can change the ATO Cycle • Ops Tempo (large scale disasters) • Holidays • Localized event at AFNORTH

  33. Mission Approved! Now what? • Planning • Reporting • Finances

  34. Planning • Stay ahead! • Plan for the next day or ATO cycle

  35. National Operations Center • Reporting: • Normal missions only require the information in WMIRS • DSCA missions generally require SITREP’s • A template will be provided

  36. National Operations Center • Finances • Remember there is no endless pot of money! • Every mission has a limit • MIPR’s have a hard limit.

  37. National Operations Center • Reimbursements • What can be reimbursed?

  38. National Operations Center • Mission Expenses • Aircraft Fuel/Oil • Vehicle Fuel/Oil • Communications Costs • Supplies necessary for the mission only. • Paper, pencils/pens, etc. • Equipment is not reimbursed • Can not pay for pilot supplies

  40. National Operations Center • Receipts required for everything • Do not refuel days after the flight.

  41. National Operations Center This is not a receipt!

  42. National Operations Center • Problems that slow your reimbursements • Incorrect or missing receipt • We’ve seen letters, a job application, etc. • The receipt amount is not the same as the e108 • Sometimes a simple typo • Receipts that cover multiple missions. • Auditors love these!
