KCJ Assignment Management Information

Welcome to the webpage of the Key/Command/JDAL (KCJ) Management Office. This office directly assists in placing qualified officers and in-residence developmental education students into designated O-5 K/C/J positions, intentionally developing the Air Force Reserve’s next generation of leaders. 

KCJ positions represent about 5 percent of available officer positions and are available in all Reserve status types - TR, IMA, ART and AGR. As these are specially designated positions, they are also term-limited to 3 years for Key and Command positions, and 4 years for JDAL positions. 

All qualified officers are welcome to apply for these positions; however, applicants placed on the Key Personnel Listing by their Development Team will be given strong consideration. At this time, the KCJ Management Office is only managing O-5 IMA positions, but may look to expand to other ranks and reserve categories in the future.

Please contact our office at DSN 847-3817 or at 720-847-3817 for more information about KCJ positions. Only calls related to KCJ positions will be answered. All other inquiries must go through the Total Force Service Center
