Air Force Personnel Center news release (Feb. 3, 2006): Air Force begins testing civilian self-service system.

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- The Air Force will begin testing a new My Biz self-service system for Air Force civilians to view their personnel information, today.

The Web-based self-service application will allow employees round-the-clock access to their personnel information from .mil domains.

In My Biz, civilians can maintain their own personal information, such as benefits and training and profiles and periodically provide input to their supervisors on employee performance plans.

"My Biz falls perfectly in step with the Air Force's vision to transform the way personnel information is provided to and accessible by its military personnel and civilian employees," said Chuck Zedek, personnel systems program manager at the Air Force Personnel Center here. "Customer-oriented access such as this will enable civilians to get the personnel information they need when they need it."

The initial testing of the application, which concludes Feb. 15, will be conducted at Dobbins Air Force Base, Ga.; Ellsworth Air Force Base, S.D.; Shaw Air Force Base S.C.; Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash.; Laughlin AFB, Texas; Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont.; Schriever Air Force Base Colo.; Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany; and Tinker Air Force Base, Okla.

However, once the initial test is completed, employees may continue to access My Biz to view their personal information.

Employees at the test bases will be able to view data related to their civilian employment and will have limited capability to update their e-mail address, work phone, handicap code, race and national origin, and language.

Employees may also view appointments, current and historical position information, salary, awards, bonus and performance information, and benefits.

Although this is a test to monitor My Biz system performance, employees will view current data and their changes will be reflected in their Defense Civilian Personnel Data System records.

Along with the system performance test, the Air Force will also conduct a special stress test Feb. 9 to ensure the system can sustain performance during periods of high customer demand.

It is to be fully implemented by June 2006 and will be accessible at <>.
