Does anyone know if the DIA will work with you on assigning you or your spouse (military side) close together? For example, if my husband is stationed in Hawaii through orders not affiliated with DIA (and hypothetically people in my job field work at said location), do they work with you to get you closer to your spouse or is it just a “Sorry, good luck” thing?

I’m currently in HI and he’s up for orders. Unfortunately he can’t go to DC this time around because there are no ships there lol. Just trying to plan ahead.

Thanks!

I dont know of any official program or policy for that. But I do know that sometimes they have a hard time getting people to go to Hawaii because of the high cost of living, so that may be something in your favor.

In my experience, DIA will not assist with spousal relocation assistance if the significant other is in the military. If both of you were DIA civilians, then yes, they would work to find a vacancy for you or your spouse, which ever is in need of a follow on assignment. What will likely need to occur is your spouse will have to find out where he/she has orders to and then you'll need to apply to an open vacancy at that same location, or work with your current leadership in an attempt to arrange a telework agreement with an installation near your spouse that can support your work.

Regardless, I'd recommend reaching out to HROC to determine your options.

Best of luck!
