NRM Career Assignment Program (CAP) 2023 Announcement Suspense: 12 January 2023
Please see the memo signed by Thomas P. Smith, Chief of Operations and Regulatory Division, announcing the opening of nominations for the 2023 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 late January through June 2023 and the other from July through December 2023. The exact start date will be negotiated once selections for the assignments are made. Further explanation of the program and the requirements for submission of nominations are enclosed. Salaries for the CAP assignees will remain the responsibility of their home district or MSC. If necessary, travel costs will be funded by CECW-CO-N.
Interested and qualified team members must submit a 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 endorsing their top two candidates to Heath Kruger at HQUSACE, Operations Natural Resources Community of Practice (CECW-CO-N), no later than 12 January 2023. 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 through the organization. Previous CAP's have stated that this was the best experience of their careers and inspired them to consider new directions while building on to their skills and abilities. This program helps to build and strengthen the future leadership of our great organization.
The POC for this program is Heath Kruger, CECW-CO-N, 202-309-4273, Heath.R.Kruger@usace.army.mil
