Furlough guidance for MSC personnel – part four

The following blog post is the fourth in a series of command-wide, weekly updates intended to inform MSC personnel afloat and ashore about the ongoing budget decisions and specifically how those decisions will impact our command.

Navy-wide civilian hiring freeze: As of March 15, a Navy-wide civilian external hiring freeze continues until further notice, per a memo from the Assistant Secretary of the Navy dated Feb. 27, 2013. At MSC, the only exception to that freeze is for civil service mariners (CIVMARs) – we will continue to hire new civil service mariners, based on an exemption granted by the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Manpower and Reserve Affairs.

Furlough guidance for MSC civilians: As of April 4, the Department of Navy plans to issue furlough notification letters on/about May 6, with furlough decisions issued on/about June 16.
