We are a Small Business DoD Prime Contractor and are seeking candidates in support of the Air Force Global Strike Command (AFGSC) to provide in-garrison active Bomber Squadrons functional support for typical additional duties assigned to squadron personnel, such as Scheduling, Training, Stand/Eval support; and specific support requirements, tasks, and qualifications.

Proposed Period of Performance is:  26Sep2017 through 25Sep2020.

Responsibilities

Scheduling is a challenging, dynamic, process. Even after the schedule is printed, numerous changes are normally required because of aircraft mechanical problems, medical issues, flight evaluation requirements, expiring event currencies, deployments, and student training continuity. Weather conditions and other factors beyond the control of the scheduler also limit flying opportunities. The scheduler needs to be able to adapt quickly to changing circumstances in a medium-to-high-stress environment.

 

Tasks:
1.  Coordinate with the training officer, Squadron Aviation Resource Management (SARM), UDM, and Operations Officer (DO) to arrange a schedule to facilitate operations, qualification, upgrade, test, exercise, and continuation training accomplishment to meet required currency and progression standards, in accordance with DO priorities.
2.  Build long and short-range shift schedules to ensure full coverage of all aircrew, instructor, evaluator, support personnel, and supervisor positions.
3.  Coordinate with senior squadron leadership on a daily and weekly basis.
4.  Keep track when crewmembers will be on leave, temporary duty, have scheduled medical appointments, or other scheduling commitments, and deconflict crewmember schedules and work with flight leadership to ensure crews are available to meet assigned sortie taskings.
5.  Track daily flight/ground/academic training requirements and accomplishments to facilitate accurate flight scheduling as directed by the DO.
6.  To the maximum extent possible, schedule aircrews based on experience to mitigate Operational Risk Management (ORM).
7.  Report updates to Squadron and Wing leadership.
8.  Facilitate last-minute schedule changes to ensure full coverage by working with the current mission commander/operations supervisor (or equivalent) and flight responsible for the shift that is not fully manned.
9.  Obtain aircraft and equipment availability data from maintenance (MX) and schedule crewmembers for training, exercises, simulators, and operations, as required.
10. Publish/post scheduling data for unit long/short-range ground/academic, flying, and simulator training event schedules on PEX, or other computer database systems.
11. Comply with Operations Group (OG) and scheduling chiefs’ locally-developed guidance when building the schedule.
12. Determine flight, ground, and simulator schedule requirements for upgrade, initial qualification, requalification, transition, currency, and continuation training based on syllabus requirements, student progression, weather, and daily equipment/training range availability.
13. Perform daily updates of scheduling data to compensate for changing conditions and training completion rates.
14. Coordinate with Operations Support Squadron (OSS) Plans department, outside agencies/exercise participants, and higher headquarters (i.e. RED FLAG, GREEN FLAG, Weapons School support) for reporting and to facilitate exercise and special event schedule coordination.
15. Provide inputs to OSS Scheduling and update daily Supervisor of Flying (SOF) and Top 3 schedules.
16. Correlate sortie length and airspace requirements with syllabus requirements.
17. Attend meetings, as required, to include:
    a. Weekly Special Use Airspace Scheduling meeting for schedule coordination and deconfliction;
    b. Weekly Planning/Coordinating Airspace Restrictions meeting for schedule coordination and deconfliction;
    c. Monthly Range Scheduling meetings for schedule coordination and deconfliction.
