The Personnel Force Innovation (PFI) Program is an Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller) initiative to obtain and place National Guard and Reserve Service Members on active duty tours with Department of Defense (DoD) agencies for one to three years.
PFI fills critical manpower needs in DoD working capital fund (WCF) activities by providing highly-skilled National Guard or Reserve Service Members on a reimbursable and fee-for-service basis. When active duty personnel are not available to perform Department of Defense (DoD) agency duties, National Guard or Reserve Service Members are more cost-effective than civilian employees or contractor support personnel.
All Service Members on PFI active duty tours are volunteers who may use either civilian or military skills (or both) in their active duty tour assignments. PFI recruits the service members from a pool of almost 1.5 million volunteers from all service components. Participating National Guard or Reserve Service Members voluntarily apply for positions to serve on fee-for-service tours. Visit http://pfi.dod.mil/ to apply.
