Who We Are

Career Program 27 develops and manages career development guidance, and training for housing careerists from GS-5 through GS-15. CP27 mainly is composed of occupational group 1173 and, if the majority of the work performed is Housing related, the following job series may be aligned into CP27: 0301, 0303, 0340, 0343, 0399, 1101 and 1910.

CP27 is a career program for Army General Schedule, apprentice, Non-Appropriated Fund and local national civilians who work in a variety of housing-related positions and functions embedded at all levels of the Army structure from installations to headquarters in five housing programs: Housing Services Office, Unaccompanied Housing, Army Family Housing, Residential Communities Initiative and Privatized Army Lodging. CP27 requires functional expertise in seven technical competencies.

Today's CP27 employees need to be multi-dimensional housing experts. They must be contributors, facilitators and partners in strategic planning. To meet future challenges, CP27 needs to develop careerists to perform competencies in the five core disciplines of housing: HSO, UH, AFH, RCI, and PAL. Housing careerists must also gain knowledge in closely associated fields such as master planning, government oversight and compliance, furnishings management and acquisition management.

There are four guiding principles for civilian leader development: leader responsibility, functional chiefs and supervisors as enablers, mutual support and integration, and self-development.
