"Air staff distributes promotion quotas based on fiscal and statutory constraints, and projected grade vacancies," said Col. Joe Atkins, the AFPC operations division chief. "We are working carefully to make final adjustments associated with fiscal year 2015 to ensure we have the correct promotions to meet projected Air Force senior noncommissioned officer requirements."
The promotion release procedures will remain the same. Public release will occur at 8 a.m. Central Standard Time and individual score notices will be available at the same time on the Air Force secure site (accessible via myPers).
Additionally, this change will not delay the pin-on dates for any Airman selected for senior master sergeant. The first month of promotion increments will be April 2014.
