AIR FORCE - AFI 36-2111
THE LOGISTICS CAREER BROADENING PROGRAM
|Publication Date:||17 February 2017|
LCBP is a premier 2-year developmental program with an optional one-year follow on assignment to the same installation, where officers are competitively selected and developed as acquisition, supply chain, and maintenance leaders; with the potential to fill future materiel leader /senior materiel leader, logistics/supply chain commander or maintenance commander positions in the Air Force and joint logistics systems. Officers selected for this program gain valuable knowledge and experience in managing acquisition, logistics, and product support aspects of the Air Force logistics system through rotational assignments in various functional areas of Air Force Sustainment Center (AFSC), Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) or Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center (AFNWC); and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). All career broadening officers (CBOs) will be placed on an acquisition coded position and will be required to obtain a Life Cycle Logistics (LCL) Level I APDP certification for program completion. After the 2-year program is complete, the final year can be used at the discretion of the ALC Deputy Commander for Maintenance (ALC/DCM), the AFNWC Vice Commander (AFNWC/CV), and Defense Logistics Agency Primary Level Field Activity (DLA PLFA) Commander to allow CBOs to gain additional experience within AFSC, AFNWC and DLA functional areas. This additional year can also be used to complete LCL Level II APDP certification provided the CBO is on a LCL coded position. Normal assignment rules apply when undergoing a permanent change of station (PCS) to complete this program.
