Fort Hood among six posts facing RIF

Fort Hood among six posts facing RIF

The U.S. Army Garrison leadership met with the unit’s civilian workforce at Howze Auditorium, June 14, for the first of a series of town hall meetings aimed at explaining the upcoming Installation Management Command-led Reduction in Force, or RIF process.

In his opening remarks, Fort Hood Garrison Commander Col. Hank Perry told more than 300 employees in attendance that it is important to him, personally, that the process is transparent.

“We know this is stressful on the workforce and their Families,” he said.

Perry said the RIF process at Fort Hood will begin the week of July 2, with employees affected receiving their notices two weeks later. “We’re not the only installation impacted,” Perry said, noting that IMCOM Headquarters at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio; Fort Riley, Kansas; Fort Stewart, Georgia; Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland; and Fort Meade, Maryland are also conducting a RIF to meet mandated manpower levels for fiscal year 2019, which begins
Oct. 1.
