If I get denied orders, then the EFMP office will send the required notice to MPF, who alerts AFPC. Once AFPC is notified, they try to match you against another job, you might have to wait for another assignment cycle to come around (depends on your career field).
Something my supervisor had me do and has worked 2 times now, is to fill out your ADP or dreamsheet with only places you know work for your situation, then in the comments area, write "all my selections are compatible with the needs of my EFMP family" or something like that.
Good luck, I got my assignment in February and our EFMP interview is next week... everything about it takes forever!
Edit: my assignments team (on their annual road-show here) said that each re-assignment is a case-by-case basis, sometimes they can match you up immediately, and sometimes they can't, but the default is to leave you in place regardless of code/control tour status until they have positive confirmation another location works.
Thanks for the info, I just submitted my cancellation for the orders to Columbus in vMPF today. I can say the enrollment into EFMP was especially an ass pain going between Air Force and Army EFMP offices.
