§ Mr. Soames
Elements of the Royal Air Force's personnel management centre at RAF Innsworth, Gloucester, are to be considered as a candidate for agency status. The range of business being considered is the formulation and implementation of personnel management policy, the manning of posts and the career management of RAF personnel-both regular and reserves. Some 450 staff, over half civilians, are currently employed on these activities. Trade unions will be consulted on any proposals that arise from this review.
A "prior options" study is being undertaken to establish whether agency status or other options would be appropriate. Comments are invited from interested parties. Comments should be sent by 2 April 1996 to:
- Air Marshal D Cousins CB AFC BA RAF
- The Air Member for Personnel
- Headquarters Personnel and Training Command
- RAF Innsworth
- GL3 1EZ.
