Roughly 100 jobs are being phased out in a unit that provides technical services at Scott Air Force Base, according to the Air Force. The Air Force Network Integration Center cuts at Scott Air Force Base involve 99 positions. Fifty-three of them are civilian jobs.

Andy Roake, Air Force spokesman, says the eliminations expected to take place through 2015 are due to budget constraints. The jobs include middle-level management, staff and policy consultation positions. The Air Force recently announced plans to cut 22,500 positions this year.
