TOTAL FORCE HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT (HRM) DOMAIN GOVERNANCE
|Publication Date:||4 December 2013|
Purpose and Overview.
This instruction prescribes policies, responsibilities, relationships and integration points within the TF HRM Domain. The HRM Domain comprises the organizations, systems, strategies and policies that produce and sustain the Air Force's investment in human capital (military and civilian Airmen). HRM Domain Governance is the cross-component, integrated governing capability to administer the TF HRM Domain for the Regular Air Force (RegAF), Air Force Reserve (AFR), and Air National Guard (ANG). This governance serves to enable a single integrated TF HRM Domain voice to the Air Force Corporate Structure (AFCS) and the Air Force Core Function Lead Integrators (CFLIs), and MAJCOMs.
This instruction establishes a standard governance structure for TF HRM Enterprise and Human Capital Strategies and oversight of the HRM Domain. It specifies authorities, roles, and responsibilities to govern, integrate, and ensure effective coordination among TF components and stakeholders.
This instruction describes the processes and relationships within the enterprise governing framework to ensure TF HRM strategies, policies, systems, processes, and structures are developed and implemented by various organizations. These processes and relationships support stronger connections among TF components and functional area leaders while increasing efficiency and effectiveness.
Working within their respective authorities and responsibilities, TF component chiefs and HRM leaders will collaborate to align HRM Domain strategy, integrate policy development and execution, align resource planning and programming, and create synergy around other areas affecting the TF HRM Domain. Where the HRM Governance is a collaborative effort among three component organizations, TF component equities and authorities must be acknowledged and addressed in decision making. Such component authorities, where permissible, should be executed under the authority of the TF HRM Governance, where such collaboration serves to promote efficiency and preclude unnecessary duplication of effort by the other components (e.g. publishing an AF Instruction, AF Reserve Instruction, and an ANG Instruction for similar policies). The purpose of the TF HRM governance is to:
Improve consistency of TF HRM services to Airmen and families across all components.
Eliminate unnecessary overlap and duplication in HRM management among components.
Improve integration and collaboration among components to better develop and execute HRM capabilities across the Total Force.
Improve capabilities across all components through TF HR solutions.
Transform the principal values and focus of TF HRM from transactional services to strategic partnerships with Airmen, families, and TF leaders.
