ACTION: Notice of amendment to AFRL’s demonstration project plan. AGENCY: AFRL will implement a flexible term appointment and a flexible extended temporary promotion authority for its Scientific and Professional Positions (ST) and Senior Scientific Technical Manager (SSTM) incumbents. The need for ST and SSTM positions in particular technology areas diminishes as the emerging technology becomes more established over time and a set of trained scientists and engineers are groomed to support the new core technical competency. AFRL needs this SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 flexibility to better manage its ST and SSTM cadre in order to ensure critical technologies are led by high-caliber ST and SSTM incumbents. The extended probationary period currently authorized for AFRL Science and Engineering (S&E) provides a longer period to evaluate an individual’s ability to adequately contribute to the AFRL mission and coincides with the extensive Research and Development (R&D) process. That same evaluation period is needed for the SSTM cadre. DATES: This notice may be implemented beginning on August 16, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: • AFRL: Ms. Rosalyn Jones-Byrd, Personnel Demonstration Project Manager, AFRL, 1864 4th Street, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH 45433–5209; rosalyn.jones-byrd@ us.af.mil. • DoD: Dr. Jagadeesh Pamulapati, Direct, Defense Laboratories, 4800 Mark Center Dr., Alexandria, 22350–1100; jagadeesh.pamulapati.civ@mail.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1. Background This notice amends the AFRL’s demonstration project plan published in the Federal Register on August 30, 2010 (75 FR 53076). Section 342(b) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 1995, Public Law (Pub. L.) 103–337, as amended by Section 1109 of the NDAA for FY 2000, Public Law 106– 65, and Section 1114 of the NDAA for FY 2001, Public Law 106–398, authorizes the Secretary of Defense (SECDEF) to conduct personnel demonstration projects at DoD laboratories designated as STRLs. All STRLs authorized by Section 1105 of the NDAA for FY 2010, Public Law 111– 84, as well as any newly-designated STRLs authorized by SECDEF or future legislation, may use the provisions described in this Federal Register Notice (FRN). STRLs implementing this flexibility must have an approved personnel management demonstration project plan published in a FRN and shall fulfill any collective bargaining obligations. AFRL currently has fewer ST allocations than it did in 2014, and has identified and prioritized new or emergent technical focus areas which will replace several of the current allocations as vacancies occur. ST positions within the laboratory are established for individuals to lead research in emerging technology areas and mentor young scientists and engineers to attain competence in the new technology areas.
