Converting contractor jobs to civilian ones will give Wright-Patterson an increase of 435 civilian positions, the Air Force said.
The U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine increases by 268 military and 138 civilian positions as it is relocated to Wright-Patterson from Brooks City-Base, Texas, under the 2005 BRAC plan.
The Aeronautical Systems Center, which manages key aircraft and weapons programs, will increase by 151 civilian positions, the 711th Human Performance Wing will add 103 military and civilian jobs, and the Air Force Materiel Command’s headquarters will add 28 civilian positions.
The National Air and Space Intelligence Center, Air Force Institute of Technology, Electronic Systems Center and Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency are among the agencies scheduled to receive smaller civilian staff additions under the plan.
Wright-Patterson, with about 25,000 employees, is already the largest single-site employer in Ohio. It is a key Air Force nerve center as home to acquisition, logistics and research and development operations.
The Air Force also proposed changes for state Air National Guard operations around the country. No manpower changes are proposed for the Ohio Air National Guard operations at Springfield, Columbus or Toledo.
