The Army Talent Alignment Process (ATAP) is a decentralized, regulated, market-style hiring system that aligns officers with jobs based on preferences. By October 2019, the majority of active-duty officers and units will participate in the ATAP for their summer 2020 assignments. Officers use AIM 2.0 to access the ATAP until it becomes available in the Integrated Personnel and Pay System-Army (IPPS-A).
- Officer preferences are shaped by their unique Knowledge, Skills, and Behaviors (KSBs).
- ATAP is transparent- all participating units and officers can see each other.
- Unit commanders and human resource managers should describe the unique requirements of available jobs and interview potential candidates.
