General Management Issues
ATCF management personnel encounter a variety of controller and facility issues that
require input from facility controllers and strict adherence to established regulations.
Facility boards, hours of duty, and operating position guidelines are examples of some
of the key management issues.
Controller Evaluation Board
Sometimes, a controller's training progress is unsatisfactory or requires modification.
The purpose of the Controller Evaluation Board (CEB) is to make recommendations to
the ATCFO and evaluate the following:
The training status and progress of controllers, identifying those who are not
progressing satisfactory or who have not been able to meet training schedules
Those controllers whose performance or training record indicate unsatisfactory
performance or inability to master the complexities of the AC rating
Other matters deemed appropriate by either the ATCFO or LCPO
The ATCFO determines the composition of the CEB.
Procedures Evaluation Board
The Procedures Evaluation Board (PEB) is a means for a controller to take an active
role in developing ATC procedures for their facility; it is highly encouraged for any
controller to recommend changes. Members of the PEB are tasked with evaluating
existing and new ATC procedures for accuracy and improvement. The PEB then
forwards any actions or modifications they recommend to the ATCFO for approval.
