DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce
|Publication Date:||23 January 2009|
Reissues DoD Directive (DoDD) 1404.10 (Reference (a)) under a new title to establish the policy through which an appropriately sized subset of the DoD civilian workforce is preidentified to be organized, trained, and equipped in a manner that facilitates the use of their capabilities for operational requirements. These requirements are typically away from the normal work locations of DoD civilians, or in situations where other civilians may be evacuated to assist military forces where the use of DoD civilians is appropriate. These employees shall be collectively known as the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce. Members of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce shall be organized, trained, cleared, equipped, and ready to deploy in support of combat operations by the military; contingencies; emergency operations; humanitarian missions; disaster relief; restoration of order; drug interdiction; and stability operations of the Department of Defense in accordance with DoDD 3000.05 (Reference (b)).
Updates policies and responsibilities for the designation of part of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce using the existing category of Emergency-Essential (E-E) civilian employee positions, and establishes policies and responsibilities for the designation of part of the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce using new categories of Non-Combat Essential (NCE) positions and Capability-Based Volunteers (CBVs) employees and former DoD employees. All four categories make up the newly designated DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce.
Supersedes any conflicting portions of other DoD issuances. Such instances shall be identified by the Heads of the DoD Components to the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness (USD(P&R)).
This Directive applies to:
OSD, the Military Departments, the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Joint Staff, the Combatant Commands, the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, the Defense Agencies, the DoD Field Activities, and all other organizational entities within the Department of Defense (hereafter referred to collectively as the "DoD Components").
All appropriated and non-appropriated fund positions and DoD civilian employees of the DoD Components. Excludes dual status National Guard and Reserve Technicians and contractor employees.
