The Assignment Management System (AMS) is a web application that houses multiple applications in support of officer assignments, enlisted assignments, commander responsibilities, and individual Air Force members. Users have access to a portion of their own personnel data and the ability to use manning tools, volunteer for available assignments, and review career field information using AMS.

AMS personnel data, frequently referred to as Single Unit Retrieval Format (SURF), is not the official system of record for your personnel information and should not be used in place of Military Personnel Data System (MilPDS). Information displayed in AMS is updated from MilPDS once each week. To update personnel information in AMS, contact your local Military Personnel Flight (MPF) for corrections to MilPDS.

If you have specific questions concerning your AMS account, please send an email to If you are experiencing problems with the AMS application, please contact the A1 Service Desk.
