Air Force Nonappropriated Fund (AFNAF) Services Career Program

The AFNAF Services Career Program (herein referred to as the Career Program) deals with three areas of the civilian work force; the career executive force (those currently working in Career Program covered positions); the general work force (those eligible for referral to Career Program positions); and the Management Trainee (those in entry level, development positions managed by the Career Program).

The AFNAF Services Career Program is chartered by the Services Policy Council to identify, develop, employ and retain men and women with the skills necessary to satisfy current and future Air Force requirements. The Services Policy Council, made up of civilian members (both NAF and appropriated fund (APF) functionalists and civilian personnel advisors), provides management policy and direction.
