BILOXI — As a result of Air Force reductions in the civilian work force, Keesler Air Force Base is slated to lose 68 civilian positions in 2012.
This reduction is in response to direction from the Secretary of Defense for the Department of Defense to keep civilian manpower costs capped at fiscal year 2010 levels.
The Air Force is increasing positions supporting acquisition, the nuclear enterprise and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance and other areas while reducing positions in management, staff and support areas.
Details regarding any additional efforts to streamline operations, such as reprioritizing base services and partnering with the local community, will be announced as they are finalized.
“We are committed to keeping our workforce, families and local community informed throughout this process as we support the Air Force and DoD efforts to build a more efficient and strong force for the future,” said Brig. Gen. Andrew Mueller, 81st Training Wing commander.
