            The Division was under the management of the Budget and Accounting Officer, authorized civilian position (GS-9).  Seven (7) Branches were operated under the supervision of an NCOIC, authorized in Grade E-7, AFSC 67270. In addition to the above and under the supervision of the Budget and Accounting Officer, a bookkeeper was employed as Non-Appropriated Funds Clerk, non-civil service.

            Of the four (4) airmen assigned to the Division at the start of this period, three (3) separated from the Air Force, or reenlisted at other stations, and one (1) received a compassionate transfer. A request for civilian authorizations to fill anticipated military vacancies was forwarded to the 3079th ADW prior to the close of the previous historical period. At the beginning of the period, the situation regarding availability of personnel was extremely critical.

            Fortunately, A/30 WAYNE L PIERSON and T SGT JAMES N STRINGER arrived in sufficient time to bridge the gap without excessive loss of efficiency.

            The personnel received during this period were not fully trained in the affairs of the Budget and Accounting Division of an Aviation Depot Group, and the first half of this report was devoted in large degree to training of the new personnel.  By the end of this period, progress had been made to the point where a firm control of reporting, statistical reports and auditable records had been established and was functioning satisfactorily.
