Pope SATAF V Postponed

This week, the 43rd Airlift Wing was scheduled to host the fifth Site Activation Task Force conference. The purpose was to work out details concerning real property transfer, transfer of base-level and mission-oriented services and a variety of other issues concerning personnel management and timelines. The participants included personnel from Air Mobility Command, 43rd AW, Airman and Family Readiness Center, 440th Airlift Wing, Fort Bragg, Army-IMCOM and other tenant units at Pope. 

Unfortunately, the conference was postponed until a date to be determined in the near future. Headquarters Air Force and the Department of the Army are coordinating on a critical joint memorandum, and until that is signed, conference agenda items cannot be adequately addressed. Also, once the joint memorandum is signed, additional time is needed to finish drafting key Inter Service Support Agreements and work cost data associated with elements of the agreements. 

In the meantime, we are aggressively reviewing requirements necessary to transfer operations and services from the active duty to Reserves. Working groups are ongoing and video conferences are scheduled with the MAJCOMs to refine these requirement.
An announcement will be made once a new SATAF conference date is determined.
