The Army is moving forward with plans to reduce the size of its civilian workforce, according to a Friday statement from the Defense Department.

About 8,700 reductions will take place by September 2013 with 37 states being affected. The Army said about 90 percent of the cuts will take place within Installation Management Command, Army Materiel Command, and Training and Doctrine Command.

“Army commands and agencies are continuing to take necessary actions to reduce their civilian on-board strength to meet funded targets established by the Secretary of Defense and reflected in the President’s budget,” said Thomas R. Lamont, assistant secretary of the Army for manpower and reserve affairs. “To the maximum extent possible, the Army will rely on voluntary departures to achieve these manpower reductions.”
