The Assignment Management System (AMS) is a CAC enabled platform which maintains a portfolio of programs ensuring the right Airman goes to the right job at the right time. Requirements are advertised through the Enlisted Quarterly Assignments List (EQUAL). You may volunteer and update your preferences through the virtual Military Personnel Flight application, or contact your local military personnel office. These programs may be accessed through the AFPC Secure application. 

Based on your choices and your relative priority among those in the same grade and AFSC, names are matched to the bases. The assignments flow to your local military personnel office then to your commander for official notification. 

Graduates from basic military training are provided assignments on a weekly basis, as are most graduates from Technical Training. Assignments are provided to the Continental United States as well as overseas and are provided equitably among the commands. Individual preferences are considered to the fullest extent possible.

If you have 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.
