FY22 NRM CAP announcement Suspense: 26 November 2021
Please see attached memo, signed by Margaret Gaffney-Smith, Interim Chief of Operations and Regulatory Division, announcing the opening of nominations for the FY 2022 Natural Resources Management (NRM) Career Assignment Program (CAP). This program provides an excellent opportunity for our future leaders to gain valuable experiences and insights into the NRM program at the national level and to become familiar with HQUSACE roles and responsibilities.
There will be two CAP assignments (6-month terms) offered. One is scheduled to run from January through June 2022 and the other from July through December 2022. The exact reporting date will be negotiated once selections for the assignments are made. Please note that due to potential travel and office restrictions still in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are projecting that parts or all of this assignment may need to be accomplished through remote or telework capabilities. Further explanation of the program and the requirements for submission of nominations is enclosed. Salaries for the CAP assignees will remain the responsibility of their home district or MSC. Travel and full per diem costs will be funded by CECW-CO-N.
Interested and qualified team members must submit an application resume through their supervisor to their district office for consideration. District offices will forward their candidate(s) to their MSC. Each MSC NRM Chief will prepare and send a memorandum, with application resumes included, endorsing their top two candidates to Heath Kruger at HQUSACE, Operations Natural Resources Community of Practice (CECW-CO-N), no later than 26 November 2021. Nominations will not be accepted directly from individuals.
Please encourage your employees to consider this outstanding opportunity to experience the policy, budget, and decision-making throughout the organization and with other agencies. Previous CAP's have stated that this was the best experience of their career, helping them to build skills and abilities outside of their normal work assignments, and inspired them to consider new directions in their career path. This program helps to build leadership in the Corps.
The POC for this program is Heath Kruger, CECW-CO-N, 202-309-4273, email@example.com.
