The Air Force says roughly 100 jobs are being phased out in a unit that provides technical services at Scott Air Force Base

The Air Force Network Integration Center cuts involve 99 positions. 53 of them are civilian jobs.

Air Force spokesman Andy Roake 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.
