DISA still isn't using the cyber excepted service to help hire new talent.
Only 20 percent of the Army's cyber teams are made up of civilians. The Army is analyzing whether that's the right ratio in an environment where every uniformed servicemember is expected to be able to deploy to combat.
The Defense Department is planning a three-phase rollout of a new personnel system for its cyber workforce.
The Pentagon's new Cyber Excepted Service will extend the probationary period for new employees to three years and give hiring managers more flexibility to recruit candidates.
The Defense Department's acting chief information officer says final rules for the new Cyber Excepted Service should be in effect by July or August.
DoD will ask around 3,000 current employees to move from the traditional civil service system to one that offers them fewer job protections but might also boost their pay and promotion prospects.
