How to Determine Who Is Your Servicing DPC?

Your servicing DPC is determined based on your first line supervisors duty location.  For example if your first line supervisor is located in Richmond then you would send the exemption request to the Aviation mailbox.  If your 1st line supervisor is located at Fort Belvoir then you would send the exemption request to the HQs mailbox unless of course you are an Energy employee located at Fort Belvoir.  In this situation you would send your request to the Energy mailbox.  All questions or requests pertaining to this subject should be sent to the mailboxes stated above.
