OSI IMA reserve positions


Final approval of any assignment to OSI is based on satisfactory results from the Agent Suitability Investigation (ASI) or Professional-staff Suitability Investigation (PSI) which takes approximately 45 days.

Enlisted Agent Positions:

OSI only considers E5/E6 applicants with extensive felony level investigative experience for retraining. All other ranks (to include officers) must be fully qualified. Fully qualified means completion of FLETC's CITP and BSIC.

OSI is not currently accepting additional applications for Reserve agent positions from applicants who are not already OSI agents.  For enlisted positions, we have a surplus of applicants in the pipeline and need to work through them before accepting additional applications.  We will continue to consider current OSI agents who are separating from active duty.

Officer Agent Positions:

For OFFICER positions, we are accepting applications 18 March – 15 April, 2020, from officers interested in filling Reserve agent captain (O-3) positions.  Interested applicants should send their resume, last 3 Officer Performance Reports and DD Form 214 (if applicable) to the following email address: AFOSI.HQ.DPR@us.af.mil.  Please make the subject of your email as follows:  “OSI Reserve Officer Application – Last name, First name” (Example:  OSI Reserve Officer Application – Doe, John)

In-Service Recruiter (ISR)  

OSI is fortunate to have two designated ISRs.  All personnel (enlisted and officers) interested in transitioning from active duty to the Reserves should contact one of our ISRs, MSgt Nicole Mauss and MSgt Oscar Mendoza.  They divide their workload based on the first letter of your last name (Mauss = A – K; Mendoza = L – Z), but both of them are familiar with the process for transitioning into OSI Reserve positions and are willing to help you.  Other ISRs should also contact MSgt Mauss or MSgt Mendoza to ensure applicants are processed correctly.  Their contact info is as follows:  MSgt Mauss -- DSN 857-9373, Commercial 301-981-9373, or email -  nicole.mauss.1@us.af.mil; MSgt Mendoza -- DSN 857-7045, Commercial 240-857-7045, or email -  oscar.mendoza@us.af.mil.

Non-agent positions:  Advertised on the AF Portal/RMVS

First, complete an AF Form 1288.  If you are a traditional reservist (TR) it must be signed by your losing wing commander; IMAs need signatures from both their losing commander and losing RMG/PM. Guard members need signatures from both the losing commander and a reserve recruiter. If you are active duty you need signatures from both your region commander and a reserve recruiter. Inactive (any service) must contact a reserve recruiter for all actions.

Second, send an email to HQ RIO/Det 7 ( arpc.hqriodet7forcemgt@us.af.mill) a complete package which consists of (1) the signed AF Form 1288, (2) last 3 performance reports and (3) a Record Review Rip (RRR). They will send your package to OSI/DPR to initiate the suitability investigation.

Once the SI is approved, HQ RIO Det 7 will contact you. Ensure you are current on all readiness requirements (PHA, dental and fitness test) to prevent any delays in the assignment process.

Note to recruiters: Do not submit the 1288 in AFRISS until HQ RIO Det 7 notifies you that the member's suitability investigation is approved. Otherwise, it will sit in AFRISS and flag as overdue.
