Welcome to the Civilian Personnel Advisory Center's online customer page. This page was developed with the idea that we could put the most common items you need in your day-to-day activities available with the click of your mouse. Our page is set up for use by managers and employees. We want to provide you the best possible support, whether online or in person at our office.
The Civilian Personnel Advisory Center is made up of a team of human resources professionals dedicated to supporting and empowering Soldiers, civilians, families and veterans worldwide in an era of persistent conflict. The CPAC office is responsible for recruiting, retaining and sustaining a high-quality volunteer force through innovative and effective enterprise solutions and ensures human resources readiness of the Total Army across the full spectrum of operations.
More than 330,000 men and women work for the Army in every profession imaginable – not as active-duty military, but as an integral part of the Army team to support the defense of our nation. For appropriated job opportunities at Camp Zama, visit Army Civilian Service and USA Jobs.
