In an attempt to avoid layoffs and furloughs, ATF will offer approximately 400 buyouts, reports the trade magazine Government Executive. The buyouts will be both at headquarters and field offices.

Audrey Stucko, acting director for human resources and professional development, said the move is an attempt to deal with a tight budget climate, according to Government Executive. ATF expects to get 250 to 275 employees to take the buyouts, saving the┬ábureau between $15 million and $20 million. “Maybe we will get more; that would be a good thing,” she said.

From Government Executive:

Eligible employees have until Oct. 14 to apply for the buyouts. Those who accept the package must leave the bureau by Nov. 30. Stucko said the offers apply across ATF’s directorates but not to positions considered critical agency functions.
