Abstract : This is a report of an occupational survey of the Information Management (IM) career ladder (AFSC 3A0X1). This survey was conducted to collect current data for use in validating career ladder documents and training programs. The last occupational survey for this career ladder was published in May 1988. As described in the AFMAN 36-2108 Specialty Descriptions, DAFSC 3A03 1, 3AOSl, 3A071, 3A091, and 3A000 personnel are responsible for performing information management and staff support IM functions. These duties include operating the Base Information Transfer Center (BITC); weighing, metering, and sorting outgoing mail by zip code; and managing individual account records of publications and forms. Personnel also format, type, and publish administrative publications, as well as process administrative orders and maintain justification for publication. Incumbents operate records staging areas for noncurrent records storage, dispose of eligible records, and post and maintain changes to the records disposition schedule. Furthermore, they implement IM directives and procedures, and coordinate IM problems with the director or chief of base IM. Personnel also answer and refer telephone calls, establish suspense files or systems, and gather manpower, productivity, and budget information. Personnel maintain a distribution scheme between the BITC and individual agencies and receive, suspense, and redistribute incoming correspondence. Incumbents also perform functional area records duties, provide for copying equipment routine maintenance, and perform protocol activities. Initial entry training is provided through a 31-day course at Keesler AFB MS.
