Military and civilian new hires should have received notification of a sponsor assignment. At USTRANSCOM, the sponsor's role is to answer any questions the new hire has about the command and local area, in addition to providing a professional welcoming. If you are joining USTRANSCOM within the next 30 days and have not received a sponsor assignment, please submit this form.

If you haven't been contacted by or been notified who your sponsor is please click on the link to contact your representative.

Please contact your company representative to locate your onboarding sponsor.


Employees who already have a Command Access Card (CAC) should submit the following forms 30 days prior to their anticipated start date. The DD 2875 is used for requesting access to computer systems and the AF 2586 is used to obtain the USTRANSCOM Line Badge. Both forms can be accessed below. Once they are completed, please send them to your sponsor.
