1) will be impacted first. We believe the January 2007 open period for ICAP vacancy announcements will be the last the IC will hold. JDAs will instead be offered.
2) will transition into the JLDC but no date has yet been set. It is likely to be after FY07.
3) The requirements contained in Career Program 35’s, Intelligence and Security, will not be a part of JDA, like under the ICO Programs, but will still offer guidance on establishing goals for development within Army.
4) . ICAP and ICAP-Equivalent assignments will
be accepted by the JDA program for equivalency to at least Basic JDA assignments. Advanced JDA credit is possible for some of those assignments but will require more than just an ICAP certificate. Formal documentation will have to be submitted similar to that required of those who are claiming credit for a non-ICAP assignment.
5) . There are many advantages of the new program over ICAP:
a) Gaining organizations will be reimbursing losing organizations for salary dollars.
b) Over-hire spaces be authorized for backfill.
c) Most, if not all of the IC should participate.
d) Although there is no guarantee of promotion the DNI will monitor promotion rates for 13s,14s and 15s and JDA program statistics/accomplishments will be given great scrutiny by senior leadership.
e) There should be more visibility to permanent JDA vacancy opportunities.
f) The quality of those on rotationals should be higher since they will not be for the convenience of the employee but rather be for the highest performers with most leadership potential.
g) Deployed experience in combat zone should be qualifying after 180 days and service in combatant commands should be qualifying even if an army employee was in EUCOM, SOUTHCOM or USFK.
h) In a few cases Army employees will be able to get advanced JDA in Army if they are working in an Advance JDA positions (we project a very limited number).
i) Rotationals will be documented in official personnel record by moa or personnel action.
