The Civilian Personnel Advisory Center (CPAC)-NAF at Fort Drum provides comprehensive human resources services resulting in a civilian workforce that successfully supports our nation’s defense.
Divisions and Services:
There is one staffing team composed of a supervisor, one HR specialist, and two HR assistants who advise management on recruiting for vacant positions. Recruitment consists of classification of position descriptions, announcing vacancies on USA Jobs, rating resumes and referring highly qualified candidates to management. Once management has made a valid selection the CPAC team makes tentative job offers, initiates pre-employment requirements, makes firm / final job offers, and sets entry on duty dates. The staffing team also advises management on strategic recruitment to include non-competitive hiring authorities, position management and other facets of recruitment.
