- Joint approval has been granted by this office and the Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff (DCS, G-2), Headquarters, Department of the Army, to implement the CIPMS AOG for Intelligence Specialist Series, GS-132 in Intelligence Combat Developments (ICD).
- The ICD AOG (encl. 1) is issued as Section D to Appendix D, the AOG for Intelligence Specialist Series, GS-132. Reference 1a calls for the AOG to be applied within 180 days of receipt of this memorandum.
- The draft AOG was field tested from July through September 1992. Subsequently the AOG Committee of subject matter experts considered the test results and reviewed all comments received from the field. The committee's recommended changes were incorporated into the AOG to assure that accurate and complete coverage of intelligence combat developments work was reflected in this AOG. The final ICD AOG was substantially changed from the tested draft to clarify some of the factor degree examples, reduce duplicated examples of work, and to produce a consise guide.
- Implementation of the enclosed AOG should result in more accurate job descriptions for members of the Intelligence Combat Developments family. Personnel officials and functional managers should take full advantage of the CIPMS partnership to assure accurate, consistent position classification and appropriate consideration of position management options. The participation of addressees in the field test of the draft AOG is greatly appreciated, and the final AOG is a testament to the efforts of all who participated in its development.
- During this era of downsizing and reductions in high grade positions, we urge care in applying new standards. It is important you again review reference 1d, because you must organize carefully and assess the impact of changes in base level positions to supervisory positions. Since the rate of promotions resulting from test application of the new standard is about 12% upgrade, we may expect the impact on total positions to be similar. We have asked the IPMO to moniotr application. To do this. activities are requested to provide the report at enclosure 2 to DAMI-CP when implementation has been completed. The report will be used to analyze the impact of the ICD AOG.
