Summary of Information Collection

The Air Force (AF) Active, Air National Guard (ANG), and Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) duty field recruiters have a need for an automated tool to initially build prospective enlistees for all recruiting accessions for Enlisted, Officer, and Health Professions. Air Force Recruiting Information Support System-Total Force (AFRISS-TF) provides a comprehensive integration, interface, and standardization of all programs that manage personnel resources in support of recruiting and collecting personnel private information required to induct into the Armed Forces.

The system extends automated capabilities out to the individual recruiter, flight, squadron, and groups. It provides an automated interface to Military Entrance Processing Center Station (MEPS) where applicants undergo physical, testing, verification interviews, and tentative job reservation that can be entered into AFRISS-TF. It also provides reporting capabilities at all levels of management to make informed decisions on recruiting practices.
