1-15. Orders requirements

a. Orders are required for certain travel, certain personal actions, promotion, and separation. Permanent orders are required for awards (Format 320) (less the Army Achievement Medal (AAM), Army Commendation Medal (ARCOM), and Meritorious Service Medal (MSM) when DA Form 638-1 (Recommendation for Award (for Other than Valor) of Army Achievement Medal (AAM), Army Commendation Medal (ARCOM), and Meritorious Service Medal (MSM)) is used) and unit organization actions (Formats 150, 550, 740, and 745). The requirements for orders and permanent orders and their contents as described in this regulation take precedence over conflicting instructions in other directives or regulations.

b. Agencies with new requirements about the content of orders will forward the item to be included in the order, with justification, to HQDA (TAPC-PDO), Alexandria, VA 22332-0474. Information will be approved before it can be included in the order.

1-16. Authority to issue travel orders

General authority to issue travel orders is vested in the Chief of Staff, U.S. Army; and The Adjutant General. This authority is delegated as follows:

a. Permanent change of station (PCS) or TDY orders involving travel of Army personnel within the continental United States (CONUS).

(6) Commander, U.S. Military Entrance Processing Command, for soldiers of that command.

d. Limitation on reassignment orders. To ensure better control over the publication and distribution of reassignment orders, the number of agencies authorized to issue reassignment orders involving travel is limited to one per major command per installation. Major Army commanders may authorize exceptions to this policy within their commands when local circumstances warrant. Factors to be considered in granting exceptions are —

(1) The size and complexity of the mission of the organizations concerned.

(2) The number and type of assigned units.

(3) The volume of reassignment orders produced.

(4) Mechanization of orders production.

(5) Responsiveness to agencies being serviced.

1-17. Authority to issue modified group travel orders

a. Group travel is a movement on a PCS or TDY (including TCS) of three or more soldier traveling together for which transportation will be furnished by Government conveyance or transportation request from the same point of origin to the same destination under one order that is specifically designated by the order-issuing authority as a"group travel order." A group travel status may also be designated between points en route if the orders specifically indicate the points between which a group travel status will obtain (Joint Federal Travel Regulations (JFTR) , vol I, app A). Additionally, in accordance with the Privacy Act, do not put the full SSNs of any soldier on copies of group orders that are given to individual soldiers.

b. Authority to approve modified group travel orders is delegated to the officials shown in paragraph 1-16 of this regulation, who may redelegate this authority, in writing, as necessary.

c. All authorized orders issuing authorities may publish modified group travel orders for soldiers —

(1) Being reassigned, attached, or released from attachment when the losing and gaining units are serviced by the same Personnel Information Systems (PERSINS) processing activity (PPA).

(2) Traveling as a single group during a unit move.

(3) Traveling as a single group and soldiers are briefed regarding the reassignment as a group, are escorted to their transportation in a group, and will be met at their gaining destination by a representative of the gaining unit. (For example, movement from the Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) to Reception Station).

d. Use modified group travel for the following —

(1) To maintain unit integrity.

(2) To control a specialized group (such as recruits, students, or patients).

(3) Mission requirements.

(4) To perform duty while traveling, such as conducting experiments or polls, training in organizational movements, and moving Government vehicles.

(5) Exigencies of the service.

(6) Maneuvers.

(7) Field exercises.

(8) Unit movements.

(9) Other operational or strategic reason.

e. Group travel should not be used merely for economy in the use of travel funds. Consideration should be given to such economy as being in the best interest of the Government; however, consideration should also be given to the needs of the soldier to travel as an individual. The following needs should be considered:

(1) Driving a privately owned vehicle (POV) incident to a PCS or for use in conducting Government business en route or at the destination.

(2) The taking of leave by soldiers during travel.

(3) Inconvenience and/or impairment of individual mission requirements by having to conform to group movement requirements.

(4) The soldiers need to accompany family members who are traveling at the same time incident to a PCS.

(5) In other cases, when the commander directing the travel determines that individual travel is in the best interest of the individual and the Government ( JFTR , vol I, paras U4000-A and U4000-B).

f. Personnel who are authorized or permitted to travel separately from the group will be shown in separate orders.

g. Modified group travel orders will be processed as follows —

(1) A master copy of the order containing the full 9-digit SSN for each soldier listed on the order will be published. Master copies of these orders will be consolidated with orders published for the day according to paragraph 2-25 of this regulation and filed according to AR 25-400-2 , MARKS number 310-10A (personnel-type orders).

(2) Copies of the group order containing the full 9-digit SSN will be distributed only to the agencies requiring the order to conduct official Government business. Ensure the gaining and/or TDY unit commander is forwarded a copy of the order containing the full 9-digit SSN. Under no circumstances will an individual soldier be given a copy of a group order which contains the full 9-digit SSN of the other soldiers listed on the order. Neither will an order containing multiple 9-digit SSN be filed in the Military Personnel Records Jacket (MPRJ) or the Official Military Personnel File (OMPF).

(3) A modified copy of the above group order will be published and distributed to each individual listed on the order.

(4) Other personal information such as home/mailing address, date of birth, or home telephone number will not be published in the modified group order. Home of record (city and State only) and sex of soldier may be published in modified group orders, as required.

(5) Modified group orders are sufficient to support personnel actions as long as requests are processed through proper command channels and orders are authenticated properly. Individual soldiers must complete the SSN on their order before he or she or his or her agent uses the order in support of a personnel action or request for entitlements. Some servicing activities may request further proof such as presenting a military identification (ID) card containing soldier's full SSN before processing the action.

(6) A copy of modified group orders will be filed in each MPRJ per AR 600-8-104 , chapter 3.

1-18. Authority to issue blanket travel orders

a. Blanket travel orders are orders issued to soldiers who regularly and frequently make trips away from their permanent duty stations within certain geographical limits to perform regular assigned duties. They are authorized only for personnel performing missions absolutely essential to the operation of their command or agency. All blanket orders in effect will be reviewed at least semiannually for necessity and content. The need for orders that do not restrict the traveler to the use of Government quarters will be carefully scrutinized, and the number of these orders will be kept to a minimum.

b. The authority to approve blanket travel orders is delegated to the Vice Chief of Staff who may redelegate the authority as necessary. Requests will be sent through command channels and will include supporting data indicating the necessity for blanket travel orders.

c. The authority to approve and issue blanket travel orders is delegated to major Army commanders; the CG, U.S. Army Recruiting Command; and the Commander, U.S. Army Legal Services Agency, for soldiers of their headquarters and subordinate commands. Commanders may redelegate this authority, in writing, to their subordinates.

d. The authority to approve and issue blanket travel orders is delegated to the Superintendent, USMA, for travel within CONUS in support of the Academy Admissions Program.

e. The authority to approve and issue blanket travel orders is delegated to The Adjutant General if essential to the expeditious operation of the Armed Forces Courier Service.

f. DD Form 1610 will be used to publish blanket travel orders. (See chap 12 .)

1-19. Authority to issue repeated travel orders

a. Repeated travel orders allow any necessary number of separate round-trip journeys from the permanent duty station to and from or between specified locations. Each separate journey may necessitate stopover for duty at one or more places before returning to the permanent duty station. Travel will not be solely between the place of duty and the place of lodging.

b. Repeated travel orders may be issued for up to 60 days and may be reissued if necessary.

c. Authority to approve repeated travel orders is delegated to the officials shown in paragraph 1-16 , who may redelegate this authority in writing as necessary.

Do not issue invitational travel orders for U.S. military personnel. The JFTR and JTR remain the authority for determining individuals and circumstances requiring the use of invitational travel orders.

b. Travel aboard commercial aircraft by non-DOD personnel, including military family members, to perform official duty for the Army will continue to require invitational travel orders. Per diem is not authorized for spouse travel UP JFTR, paragraph U7700 quoting JTR, paragraph C6000-15.

c. Travel aboard military aircraft by non-DOD personnel, including military family members, to perform official duty for the Army will use transportation authorizations unless the JFTR requires use of invitational travel orders for purposes of reimbursement of travel expenses. Transportation authorizations may be used only when travel is in a non-per diem status only. Any orders-publishing activity may publish a transportation authorization as outlined in DOD 4515.13-R . The transportation authorization will follow a similar format to an individual travel order, but will be called a transportation authorization. It will permit transportation only and carries with it no obligation other than transportation.

1-21. Authority to issue temporary duty orders

TDY away from the home station, including temporary change of station (TCS) for units, will be held to a minimum consistent with military necessity.

a. TDY of 90 days or less. Except for attendance at service schools, the maximum duration of TDY for an individual or TCS for units is 90 calendar days. (For individuals and units reassigned in a TCS status during contingency operations, there is no time limitation. See chap 4 .) To compute the maximum of 90 calendar days, add all the TDY performed during the past 12 months. Authority to approve exceptions to the 90-day limitation is delegated as follows:

(1) Heads of Army staff agencies for field activities under their command.

(2) CG, U.S. Army Recruiting Command.

(3) Major Army commanders.

b. TDY of 180 days or less. Authority to approve TDY up to 180 calendar days may be redelegated to major subordinate commanders as necessary. To compute the maximum of 180 calendar days, add all the TDY performed during the past 12 months.

No individual or organization will be placed on continuous TDY at one location for more than 180 calendar days without prior approval of HQDA. Exceptions for the extension of TDY beyond 180 days at one location will be made only for unusual or emergency conditions, the unforeseen expansion of duties, unforeseen delays, or exigencies of the service that require the extension of the TDY period. Recurring TDY will not be used to augment the authorized strength. Each request for continuous TDY at one location for more than 180 days will —

(1) Be sent in time to allow action to be taken on the request before completion of the 180-day TDY.

(2) Be coordinated through command channels and the MACOM involved and sent to HQDA (TAPC-PDO), Alexandria, VA 22332-0474. If the extension is for a soldier of the USAR serving on active duty in AGR status, the request will be sent through command channels (through ARPERCEN (DARP-AR), St. Louis, MO 63132-5200) to ATTN DAAR-PE, CHIEF OF ARMY RESERVE, 2400 ARMY PENTAGON, WASHINGTON DC 20310-2400.

(a) Each soldier's name, grade of rank, social security number (SSN), military occupational specialty (MOS) or area of concentration (AOC), organization of assignment, and location of TDY.

(b) The effective date of the current period of TDY, the expiration date of the current TDY, and the expiration date of the extension desired.

(c) Justification for the request based on the criteria listed in (a) and (b) above and, a statement that the MACOM involved agrees.

(d) Conditions that make a PCS move impracticable to meet the personnel requirement. Include information whether action has been taken to establish or increase applicable TDA or MTOE.

(4) If HQDA approves continuous TDY at one location, the commander who requested the exception will ensure that the soldier and appropriate finance and accounting offices are notified of the approval. A copy of the HQDA approval or a statement in the soldier's orders can be used to notify the soldier and the finance and accounting office. For example,"This continuous temporary duty in excess of 180 days at one location is authorized by the Secretary of the Army per Memorandum, HQDA (TAPC-PDO), 5 Jan 00, Subject: Extension of temporary duty."

d. DD Form 1610 and Format 400. DD Form 1610 and Format 400 will be used in accordance with chapter 12 of this regulation to publish TDY orders.

1-22. Authority to issue other-than-travel orders

a. Authority to issue other-than-travel orders is vested in command. Therefore, commanders may issue orders based on the authority inherent in their positions, standing authority provided through regulations, or temporary authority delegated under certain circumstances for specific purposes.

b. Commanders of Active Army detachments, companies, batteries, or battalions that are serviced by a centralized MILPER office will not issue written orders. When written orders are required, commanders who are not authorized to issue written orders will submit a request for orders to the commander responsible for providing administrative support. However, the installation adjutant general may authorize those battalion and brigade commanders with automation capabilities (such as the Tactical Army Combat Service Support Computer System (TACCS)) to publish orders for the actions listed in (1) through (4) below.

1-23. Authority to issue verbal orders

When the situation demands immediate action, normally in a combat situation, a commander may issue verbal orders.

a. When the verbal order involves expenditure of public funds, issue confirmatory written orders within 30 calendar days. If the written order is issued more than 30 calendar days after the effective date of the verbal order, provide the servicing finance office and the next higher command with written justification for the delay and the action taken to prevent recurrence. The finance office will file the explanation with the order as a substantiating document.

b. Include a notation in the confirmatory orders as a response to the Authority leadline that the order confirms verbal orders of the CG or commanding officer and the date the verbal orders were given; for example,"Confirms verbal orders of commanding officer, 20 January 1992." If there is no Authority leadline for the format being used, include this information as a response to the Effective date leadline. When preparing DD Form 1610 , include this information in item 16.

Section V
Movement Designator Codes

1-29. Purpose of movement designator codes

a. PCS travel expenses of Active Army personnel are funded by appropriations available to and controlled by HQDA. A movement designator code (MDC) provides the office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel with a record of the type of PCS travel performed by Active Army personnel. This record is used to centrally manage PCS funds.

b. MDCs are used to track the following PCS moves that are chargeable to MILPER, Army, fiscal station S99999:

(1) Personnel entering on active duty.

(2) Assignment of cadets to USMA.

(3) Reassignment of personnel on active duty including reassignment of students, trainees, patients, and prisoners.

(4) Personnel on active duty who are being transitioned.

(5) USMA cadets being eliminated.

c. MDCs are not used to track the following moves:

(1) PCS moves that are funded under the reimbursement program; for example, PCS moves that support foreign military sales and PCS moves that support the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The response to the MDC leadline on these PCS orders will be a reimbursable accounting classification.

(2) TDY, except for TDY pending further orders and TDY for 1 day or more in conjunction with a PCS.

(3) Active duty in AGR status.

(4) IADT.

(5) ADSW.

(6) ADT.

(7) Annual training.

(8) Attachments.

1-30. Correct movement designator codes on orders

All individuals who prepare and publish PCS orders or changes to PCS orders (amendments and endorsements) will determine the correct MDC to be shown in the order or the change or will verify that the MDC is correct before it is included in the published order or the change if the MDC is furnished by another office.

1-31. Construction of movement designator codes

The MDC consists of the four characters defined in a through d below.

a. The first character of the MDC designates which of the basic categories of travel is to be charged. The basic categories of travel are accession, training, operational, low-cost, rotational, separation, unit, no-cost, permissive, diversion, and continuation and contingency/mobilization. See paragraph 1-32 to determine the basic category of travel, and refer to table 1-2 to determine the MDC.

b. The second character of the MDC designates the destination of the traveler. See paragraph 1-32 to determine the destination of the traveler, and table 1-2 to determine the MDC.

c. The third character of the MDC designates whether the order applies to an officer (O) or an enlisted soldier (E).

d. The fourth character of the MDC designates the fiscal year appropriation to be charged. To determine the correct fiscal year, subtract the estimated travel time from the reporting date, then add 1 day to the result.

1-32. Basic categories of travel

a. Basic categories of travel. The basic categories of travel are outlined in b through m below. To determine the basic category of travel for a soldier who is being assigned to or from —

(1) A permanent station in CONUS with duty in an overseas area. Regard the overseas duty station as if it were the permanent station.

(2) A permanent station in an overseas area with duty in CONUS. Regard the CONUS duty station as if it were the permanent station.

(3) TDY pending further orders status. Regard the TDY pending further orders assignment as if it were a permanent assignment. Disregard all other TDY when determining the basic category of travel.

(4) A hospital or medical holding detachment as a patient. Regard the hospital or medical holding detachment as if it were the permanent station.

(5) A confinement facility as a prisoner. Regard the confinement facility as if it were the permanent station.

b. Accession travel. This category applies from point of entry on current tour of active duty to first PCS school or first permanent station with or without a requirement to travel. Accession travel includes officer gains, USMA cadet gains, enlisted gains, reenlistment gains, and accession submoves. Accession travel applies if the PCS school is Officer Candidate School or Warrant Officer Candidate School and the soldier will travel as an officer gain. This category of travel does not apply after the soldier arrives at the first permanent station or the first PCS school or to enlisted soldiers currently on active duty who reenlist.

c. Training travel. This category applies when soldiers travel to or from a PCS school when no overseas travel is required. A no-cost move applies if the geographical location does not change.

d. Operational travel. This category applies when a soldier is assigned within CONUS or within an overseas area when travel is required. A low-cost move may apply if the move can be made for $500 or less. A no-cost move applies if the geographical location does not change.

e. Low-cost moves. This category applies when a soldier is assigned within CONUS or within an overseas area when travel is required, when the move can be made for $500 or less, and when the commander is authorized to direct the PCS. The local finance office and the local transportation office will be contacted to determine if the soldier's legal entitlement to the PCS travel fund is $500 or less. The determination will be made, in writing, before a request for orders is prepared. Operational travel applies if the soldier will be entitled to more than $500. Accession and separation travel low-cost moves will not be included in this category.

f. Rotational travel. This category applies when a soldier is assigned where overseas travel is required.

g. Separation travel. This category applies when soldiers are being reassigned for separation processing with or without a requirement to travel.

h. Unit moves. This category applies when each soldier is being reassigned to a different geographical location in conjunction with the PCS of an organization or unit regardless of whether travel is conducted individually or as part of a group. This category also applies to reassignments in conjunction with Cohesion, Operational Readiness and Training/New Manning System. A no-cost move applies if the geographical location does not change.

i. No-cost moves. This category applies when a soldier is assigned to an organization at the same geographical location and the move can be made without expenditure of, or legal entitlement to, PCS travel funds. Accession and separation no-cost moves will not be included in this category.

j. Permissive moves. This category applies to approved permissive moves and exchange assignments for enlisted personnel. The soldier will pay all costs incurred in the relocation.

k. Diversions. This category applies when a soldier's PCS order contains a numbered MDC and the assignment is changed after the soldier begins travel from last permanent assignment. These codes are used to avoid double counting of the move.

l. Continuation moves. This category applies to soldiers assigned to an overseas replacement-type activity as transients who are being further assigned within the overseas area. These codes are used to avoid double counting of the move.

m. Contingency/mobilization moves. This category applies to soldiers assigned TCS in support of contingency or mobilization operation.

Chapter 2
Orders

2-1. Formats

a. This regulation describes formats for preparing most orders at all echelons of Active Army and Reserve Components organizations. (See table 2-1 for a numerical list of formats and the index for an alphabetical list of formats.)

b. Some formats are multipurpose and can be used for several different actions when the responses to the leadlines are varied.

c. Field commanders will not use formats identified as HQDA Use Only. These formats contain an 8 or 9 as the second digit of code.

d. Formats containing the number 5, 6, or 7 as the second digit of code are used for ARNGUS or USAR personnel or units only.

e. All elements of the Active Army and Reserve Components may use other formats as needed.

f. Formats will not be modified unless the note to a format specifically authorizes that the modification or additional leadlines are required for TDY (para 2-7 ) and if the format does not have the necessary leadlines. Read all of the notes pertaining to a format before attempting to publish an order.

g. Order-preparing agencies with requirements for formats not included in this regulation may create new formats to meet their needs. Forward the formats with justification to HQDA (TAPC-PDO), Alexandria, VA 22332-0474, for approval. New formats will be approved before they can be used.

2-2. Group actions

a. The formats in this regulation may be used for two or more soldiers or units when most of the variable information (para 2-8 ) is the same and when each soldier or unit affected by the order can easily read and understand what action is being taken.

b. When a format requires a standard name line, place the variable information that is different for each soldier or unit after the required items of data as shown in figure 2-1 . The response to the leadline(s) will be"See standard name line."

c. When a format requires a name line, place the variable information that is different for each soldier or unit after the items of data required for the name line. The response to the leadline(s) will be"See name line."

d. See paragraph 1-17 for group travel orders.

2-3. Heading

The heading consists of DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY in all uppercase letters (except for orders prepared by ARNG units not on active duty), headquarters designation of the organization issuing the order, the mailing address, the number of the order, and the current date. (See figs 2-1 through 2-4 for samples of the heading.)

2-4. Paragraphs

An order may contain one or more paragraphs. Each paragraph will contain one action (for example, promotion, reassignment, or award) that applies to one soldier, a group, or an organization. Number the paragraphs if the order will contain two or more paragraphs. (See fig 2-1.)

2-5. Standard name line

The standard name line for a soldier consists of the name, SSN, current grade of rank, unit of assignment (including the unit identification code (UIC)), and station of assignment. The full name is also acceptable. The standard name line for a unit or organization consists of the name of the unit or organization, command of assignment, UIC, and station and location of assignment. When orders are to be mailed, the address is also included. Do not change the sequence of data unless the order will be mailed to the soldier (b below). Examples of standard name lines are as follows —

a. All personnel:
TURNER, ROBERT D. 000-00-0000 MAJ USATC Inf and Fort
Jackson (WABCAA) Fort Jackson, SC 29207-0000

b. Optional format for orders to be mailed:

c. Organization or unit:

U.S. Army Garrison MDW (WOUDAA) Fort Lesley J. McNair, Washington, DC 20315-0000

2-6. Constant information

a. The directive or announcement at the beginning of the order is the constant information, for example,"You are reassigned as indicated." This information will not be modified unless the note to the format specifically authorizes the modification or if the soldier elects option 1, 2, or 3 of HQDA-directed TDY schooling in conjunction with PCS. Do not modify the format if TDY is at either the new or old duty station.

b. Samples of various types of orders, with constant information included, are shown in figures 2-1 through 2-4 .

2-7. Leadlines

a. A leadline identifies and controls an item of variable information and uniformly leads into the proper response.

b. Do not rearrange leadlines shown in order formats. Leadlines may be deleted only when the note to a format specifically authorizes the deletion. Unless the note to a format authorizes the modification, copy the leadlines exactly as they appear on the formats in this regulation.

c. Formats may be modified to add leadlines —

(1) When the note to a format specifically authorizes the change.

(2) When TDY en route is authorized and the format does not have the necessary leadlines. TDY en route information will be included as defined in (a) and (b) below.

(a) Add the Accounting classification leadline before the MDC leadline.

(b) Add Temporary duty en route at; Reporting date, temporary duty station; Period of temporary duty; and Purpose of temporary duty leadlines after the Reporting date leadline. If the TDY soldier is to attend school, also include the course title, class or course number, and quota source as a response to the Purpose of temporary duty leadline; show specific reporting instructions as a response to the Reporting date, temporary duty station, leadline.

(3) If a soldier elects option 1, 2, or 3 of HQDA-directed TDY schooling in conjunction with PCS, change the Reporting date leadline to the Reporting date to gaining unit leadline, and include TDY information as follows:

(a) If a soldier elects option 1 or 3, add the Temporary duty; Reporting date, temporary duty station; Period of temporary duty; and Purpose of temporary duty leadlines before the Assigned to leadline; and add an Accounting classification leadline before the MDC leadline.

(b) If a soldier elects option 2, add the Temporary duty; Reporting date, temporary duty station; Period of temporary duty; and Purpose of temporary duty leadlines before the Additional instructions leadline; and add an Accounting classification leadline before the MDC leadline.

(c) Include the course title, class or course number, and quota source as a response to the Purpose of temporary duty leadline; show specific reporting instructions as a response to the Reporting date, temporary duty station, leadline.

d. Samples of various types of orders, with leadlines included, are shown in figures 2-1 through 2-4 .

2-8. Variable information

This information may vary for each individual or situation in the order and is expressed as a response to the leadlines. The person preparing the order will develop appropriate responses by referring to the individual's records and the regulations or other instructions governing the action to be taken. Some formats in this regulation have a note listing the regulations that apply to the action. In addition, appendix A lists regulations that may be needed to prepare orders.

a. For more complicated orders pertaining to individuals, the leadlines are divided into two sections.

(1) The first section is directed to the soldier to whom the order applies. It contains only the minimum information that the soldier needs to know to comply with the order.

(2) The second section is titled FOR ARMY USE. It contains leadlines and responses that provide fiscal, travel, strength accounting, and personnel management data. This section contains no information that the soldier to whom the order pertains needs to know to comply with the order.

b. Each leadline requires a clear and concise response. When appropriate, the response will be"Not applicable" or "None." Do not use the abbreviation "NA." Do not use terms such as"To be determined," "Unknown," or "To be announced" as a response to any leadline. Do not use the term" service member" or the abbreviation "SM" as a response to any leadline.

c. Samples of various types of orders, with variable responses to leadlines, are shown in figures 2-1 through 2-4 .

2-9. Additional instructions

a. Most formats have an Additional instructions leadline to include information that is needed by the soldier named in the order or is needed by an organization or unit if the order contains a standard name line of an organization or unit ( fig 2-5 ). In addition, the information will be stated in the order because of an entitlement or obligation accruing from the action being taken or because it is essential to the purpose of the order (for example, reassignment, active duty of soldier or unit, and reorganization of a unit).

b. Do not include the type of information defined in (1) through (5) below in the Additional instructions leadline, including additional instructions of orders prepared as a result of HQDA-issued assignment instructions or a PERSCOM request for orders.

(1) Information that is or should be a response to another leadline, for example, duty station, accounting classification, and temporary duty en route leadlines.

(2) Information that is shown in the constant information of the order.

(3) Outprocessing procedures that must be completed before the soldier leaves the losing organization, for example, requirements for security clearance, information on briefings, forms to be completed, and travel codes.

(4) Information that does not need to be in orders and can be furnished to soldiers during outprocessing or briefings and/or by a letter of instruction.

(5) Inprocessing procedures that the gaining organization can include in installation fact sheets or welcoming letters, for example, uniform requirements, information on DOD dependent schools, and the sign-in location at the gaining organization.

c. Table 2-2 lists instructions that may be included in travel orders and in item 16 of DD Form 1610 . The entries in table 2-2 refer to regulation(s) that govern the action being taken. The authenticator of the order will ensure that an entitlement (for example, shipment of household goods (HHG) or movement of family members) is authorized under the governing regulations before an entitlement is shown in the order.

2-10. Modes of transportation

a. Transportation officers determine modes of transportation except TDY. Therefore, orders will not show a mode of transportation unless authority is being granted for travel by privately owned conveyance (POC), special conveyance, or ferries. Orders will not specify a category or class of airlift (for example, category Z travel), because category of service implies a mode of transportation. Authority for use of extra fare travel accommodations will be obtained per JFTR , vol I, para U3125.

b. Travel by POC cannot be directed.

c. TDY orders may show that travel by POC is authorized as more advantageous to the Government per DD Form 1610 , item 12, and table 2-2 , item 1, of this regulation.

d. TDY orders may show that travel by POC is authorized as more advantageous to the Government per JFTR, vol I, paragraph U3305, table 2-2, item 26, of this regulation.

e. TDY and PCS orders may show that use of special conveyance is authorized (table 2-2, item 2).

f. PCS orders will contain the statement"Travel by privately owned conveyance is authorized from" (enter current location)"to" (enter location of new unit of assignment) if the overseas commander has approved travel by POC between a point in CONUS and a point in Alaska, the island portion of Newfoundland, or Central America (including the Republic of Panama), or return to CONUS.

g. Orders may contain the statement"Travel by privately owned vehicle is authorized" when USAR or ARNG soldiers are called to, ordered to, or released from active duty.

h. Orders may show that use of transoceanic ferry is authorized as more advantageous to the Government or that travel by oceangoing car ferries is authorized when required under JFTR, vol I, paragraph U3110-E or paragraph U5116-C3.

i. PCS orders may show that travel by more than one POC is authorized or approved as specified in table 2-2 , item 38, of this regulation, and JFTR , vol I, paragraph U5205.

2-11. Per diem

Orders will not prescribe a rate of per diem.

2-12. Page size and page numbering

a. The size of paper on which orders are printed may vary; however, all orders issued by a headquarters should be uniform.

b. Do not number the pages of an order unless the order consists of two or more pages. (See fig 2-1 .)

2-13. Length of orders

a. Limit the length of orders to one sheet (front and back of a page), if possible.

b. If a continuation page of orders is needed, follow the example shown in figure 2-1.

2-14. Numbering

a. Both permanent orders and orders are numbered consecutively for each calendar year, using the Julian date followed by the number of the order issued the same day. For example, the fifth permanent order issued by one organization on 1 January is numbered 1-5, and the first permanent order issued on 31 December is numbered 365-1. The consolidated orders log for each orders-issuing activity will reflect any breaks in the consecutive numbering system. For example, if no permanent orders were published on 3 January, the orders log will reflect that"Permanent orders 3-1 through 3-50 were not used." For example, if no orders were published on 25 December, the orders log will reflect that "Orders 359-1 through 359-50 were not used." Use a number in the same series for an amendment, a revocation, or a rescission. Cite the number of the last permanent order issued the previous year above the heading of the first permanent order of the year. For example, "Permanent orders 360-10 was the last of the series for calendar year 1990," and "Order 300-65 was the last of the series for calendar year 1990." (See figs 2-2 and 2-3 for location of the number.)

b. DD Form 1610 will be numbered by using the numeric month code followed by the number of the order issued that month. For example, the first order issued by one organization in March would be numbered 3-1. The number of the original order will be used for each amendment, revocation, or rescission prepared on DD Form 1610. Cite the number of the last DD Form 1610 issued the previous month at the top of the first DD Form 1610 for the month. For example, "Travel order number 6-700 was the last of the series for June."

c. When a unit is redesignated, begin a new series of all orders and cite the authority for the redesignation above the heading of the first order, permanent order, and DD Form 1610 issued after the redesignation.

d. When a unit is reorganized during the year without a change in mission or function, all orders will be numbered as if no change of status had occurred.

e. To ensure that orders numbers are not skipped or duplicated, one office within each orders-issuing activity should centrally manage and control the orders log.

2-15. Abbreviations

a. Heading, standard name line, and name line. Abbreviations for months and States, and abbreviations and brevity codes listed in AR 310-50 are authorized in the heading, standard name line, and name line.

b. Constant information. No abbreviations are authorized in the constant information unless they are shown in the format.

c. Responses to leadlines when the order has one section. Unless shown on the format, only the following abbreviations are authorized: Army Post Office (APO), Army regulation (AR), District of Columbia (DC), Defense Switched Network (DSN), Fleet Post Office (FPO), MOS, United States (U.S.), months of the year, and grades of rank.

d. Responses to leadlines when an order has two sections. Unless shown on the format, only the abbreviations listed in c above are authorized in the first section of the order. Abbreviations for months and States, and abbreviations and brevity codes listed in AR 310-50 are authorized in the FOR ARMY USE section of the order.

e. Authority line. No abbreviations are authorized.

f. Signature block and distribution portion. Abbreviations for States and abbreviations and brevity codes listed in AR 310-50 are authorized.

2-16. Effective date

a. Orders. The effective date of an order is the date of the order unless one of the conditions listed in (1) through (9) below applies.

(1) The order specifies a later date.

(2) The order confirms orders previously issued verbally (para 1-23 ).

(3) The order promotes Reserve Officers not on active duty (Reserve Officer Personnel Act of 1954). These orders may be effective before, on, or after the date of the order.

(4) The order retroactively promotes a soldier per AR 600-8-19 , chapter 3.

(5) The order announces retroactively (10 USC 1221) the permanent retirement of a soldier because of a physical disability on the date when the 5-year tenure period on the Temporary Disability Retired List (TDRL) expired.

(6) HQDA directs a specific date for a MOS award or withdrawal action.

(7) The order retroactively adjusts entitlement for enlistment pay grade for personnel without prior service ( AR 601-210 , table 2-3).

(8) The order announces an award of a decoration or Good Conduct Medal before the period of service covered by the award has been completed. This exception does not apply to orders announcing award of the Medal of Honor, Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross, Soldier's Medal, Bronze Star Medal for heroism, Air Medal for heroism, Joint Service Commendation Medal for valor, ARCOM for heroism, Purple Heart, or badges, bars, or tabs.

(9) The order is being remade to file in the Military Personnel Records Jacket, U.S. Army (MPRJ) ( AR 600-8-104 ).

b. PCS orders. For purposes of travel and transportation entitlements and allowances, the effective date of PCS orders is the date a soldier is required to begin travel from the old permanent duty station, home, or place from which called to active duty, or last TDY station, whichever is applicable, to arrive at the new permanent duty station on the date authorized by the mode of transportation authorized and/or used. When computing the effective date, subtract the elapsed time or authorized travel time, whichever is less, as determined per JFTR, vol I , paragraph U5160, from the authorized or actual reporting date, whichever is earlier, and add 1 day to the result (JFTR, vol I, app A). Disregard any leave a soldier takes at the old permanent duty station or en route to the new permanent duty station.

c. Assignment between control groups and USAR units or between USAR units and control groups of the USAR. The effective date for accessing a soldier by a gaining command, control group, or USAR unit will be determined by adding the administrative processing time and mail transit time to the date of release from the losing unit.

d. Order to active duty, ADT, ADSW, active training, or temporary tours of active duty. The effective date of these tours of duty will be the date the soldier is authorized to begin travel. The effective date will not be shown on the order.

e. Return to or assignment to an ARNG unit, USAR unit, or USAR control group on completion of active duty or ADT. The effective date of return to or assignment to an ARNG unit, USAR unit, or USAR control group will be determined by adding the authorized travel time to the date of departure from the transfer or training activity.

2-17. Reproduction

MILPER work centers should use their automation capabilities to produce orders. The method used for reproducing orders depends on the available facilities and the number of copies needed.

2-18. Authentication

The authentication contains the authority line and signature block. (See figs 2-1 and 2-4 for location of the authority line and signature block.)

a. Omit the authority line when the order is signed by the commander. When the order will not be signed by the commander —

(1) Use the FOR THE COMMANDER authority line when the commander has the title CG or Commanding Officer.

(2) Use the FOR THE (title of authorizing official) authority line when the authorizing official has a title other than CG or Commanding Officer.

b. The chief of staff, executive officer, adjutant general, or adjutant will normally authenticate orders. For CONUS installations (AR 5-3, chap 1) that do not have a chief of staff, the deputy installation commander will normally authenticate orders. When delegated authority by the commander, other civilian or MILPER may also authenticate orders.

c. The authentication is completed if one of the following tasks is performed:

(1) The official seal of the headquarters is placed over or above the signature block.

(2) An official seal is mechanically drawn on each mechanically produced order.

(3) The authenticator signs above his or her typed signature block.

(4) Another authenticator signs his or her name and adds the word"for" in front of the typed name in the signature block. If one soldier signs for another, his or her grade of rank will be shown.

d. The authenticator ensures that the action being ordered is correct and complete and complies with applicable regulations.

2-19. Distribution

a. How to indicate distribution. See figures 2-1 through 2-4 for the location of the distribution block on permanent orders and orders. See paragraph 12-1 for the location of the distribution block on DD Form 1610 when it has been continued and when it has not been continued. Include the following information under Distribution:

(1) Names of individuals to be furnished copies and, in parenthesis, the number of copies to be furnished to each. When an order applies to four or more individuals, distribution may be shown as"Each indiv indicated" (each individual indicated) instead of listing each individual by name.

(2) A list of organizations to be furnished copies and, in parenthesis, the number of copies to be furnished each. When copies will be mailed to an organization, include the complete unit designation and post office address. Do not use statements such as"each unit concerned." When organizations are at the same location as the order-issuing organization, use a standard distribution letter (for example,"A,""B," or"C") instead of listing each organization. The headquarters or agency concerned will publish a distribution list that shows the organizations included in each letter designation.

b. Commanders issuing orders. Commanders issuing orders will establish strict controls to ensure that —

(1) Orders are sent promptly to each individual and organization named in the order with sufficient lead time to execute the order.

(2) Orders are sent through intermediate commanders unless the intermediate commanders are not authorized to modify or suspend them. In these cases, orders will be sent directly to the soldier who will execute them, and one copy will be furnished to each intermediate commander.

(3) Local distribution is limited to official agencies with a need for orders.

(4) Individuals and organizations are furnished the minimum number of copies.

(5) Distribution includes one copy for the record set of military publications.

(6) Local inspections include a review of the orders distribution system to determine if copies are required by all organizations receiving distribution and if the number of copies is correct.

(7) Orders being mailed from a location within CONUS for delivery in CONUS are sent as follows:

(a) First-class mail if they weigh 1 ounce or less.

(b) First-class mail if they are for USAR personnel not on active duty and if orders were issued on the basis of requests received less than 45 days before the duty date.

(c) Third-class single-piece mail and third-class bulk mail if (a) or (b) above do not apply.

(8) Orders being mailed to, from, or between overseas locations are sent as follows:

(a) First-class mail if they weigh 1 ounce or less.

(b) First-class mail if they are being mailed to, from, or between Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.

(c) First-class mail if they are for USAR personnel not on active duty and if orders were issued on the basis of requests received less than 45 days before the duty date.

(d) Airmail if they are being mailed to an international address (non-APO).

(e) Third-class military ordinary mail if (a) (b) (c) or (d) above does not apply.

(9) SSNs of all soldiers shown in an order are deleted from all copies of orders being distributed to organizations or individuals for unofficial purposes.

(10) Travelers will be advised that copies of their order should not be given to car rental agents, airline ticket agents, hotel clerks, and motel clerks. Travelers can show their DOD identification card or a copy of their travel orders as proof of eligibility for a discount rate.

c. Gaining commanders. Gaining commanders will establish strict controls to ensure that —

(1) Orders are routed immediately to the agency responsible for strength accountability, to the servicing personnel unit, and to the unit to which the soldier is attached for quarters, rations, or administration.

(2) Mail distribution personnel are trained in the special handling required for orders and are aware of the importance of orders.

d. PCS orders. Distribution will include —

(1) Enough copies for each soldier to meet personal requirements, for example, movement of family members and HHG.

(2) One copy for the commander of the unit to which the soldier is being assigned. The complete unit designation and post office address of the gaining unit will be shown. Do not use statements such as"each unit concerned."

(3) One copy for the commander of the unit to which the soldier will be attached while en route to a new assignment.

(4) One copy for the MPRJ.

(5) One copy for the Commander, Eighth Personnel Command, ATTN: EAPC-RR, APO 96205 for each soldier who is being assigned to Korea.

(6) One copy to the Commander, U.S. Army Central Personnel Security Facility, ATTN: PCCF-SC (Bldg 4552A), Fort George G. Meade, Maryland 20755-5202, for all soldiers who are being assigned to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), Allied Command Europe (ACE) which includes the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE), Belgium; Allied Forces Central Europe (AFCENT); Allied Land Forces Southeastern Europe (ALFSEE), Turkey; Allied Forces Southern Europe (AFSOUTH), Italy; Land Forces Southern Europe (LANDSOUTH), Italy; Allied Forces Northern Europe (AFNORTH), Norway; Central Army Group (CENTAG), Germany (will be combined with Northern Army Group (NORTHAG)) as Land Forces Central Europe (LANDCENT); and Allied Command Europe Corps (ARC), Germany.

e. Orders. Orders when personnel records are being sent to another unit or station. The provisions of d(4) above apply when a soldier's personnel records are being sent to another unit or section.

f. Orders for HQDA. A note to the formats described in this regulation prescribes the number of copies to be sent to agencies of HQDA. Send orders daily in an envelope addressed to the specific office requiring the order. Do not send orders for one office in an envelope addressed to another office. All orders sent to a career management branch at PERSCOM will have the soldier's primary MOS (PMOS) shown in parenthesis after the appropriate office symbol.

g. Orders citing specific allotments of funds. Include one copy for the finance officer of the specific station number cited in that particular accounting classification.

h. Transition orders.

(1) Include one copy of each transition order and each reassignment for transition processing order, if separate, for the servicing finance and accounting office. This copy is needed to support the Joint Uniform Military Pay System automated transition system.

(2) Include one copy of each transition order issued to a USAR soldier on IADT for the troop program unit if the unit is shown in the distribution block of the IADT order.

2-20. Transmission by message

a. Orders may be sent by message when the commander issuing the order determines that to send the order by mail will not accomplish the purpose. Orders received by message will be endorsed ( JFTR, vol I , para U2115-D) and may be reproduced if more copies are needed.

b. The transmission of orders by message will be kept to a minimum.

c. Classified orders will not be transmitted by commercial facilities.

2-21. Amendments, revocations, and rescissions

a. Only the organization that published the original order may amend, rescind, or revoke the order. Exceptions to this policy are listed in (1) through (3) below.

(1) Commanders may revoke the following award orders that were issued by another headquarters when authorized under AR 672-5-1

(a) Interim award of a decoration when a higher decoration is approved.

(b) Award of a Good Conduct Medal.

(c) Award of a combat badge.

(d) Award of a special skill badge.

(3) U.S. Army transition points may rescind the unexecuted portion of Formats 501 and 526 on or before the date of discharge or relief from active duty shown in the order when the soldier is to be transitioned after the effective date shown in the order (Format 501, note 9; and Format 526, note 3).

b. Use DD Form 1610 to amend, revoke, or rescind TDY orders issued on a DD Form 1610. Use Formats 700 ( fig 2-6 ) and 705 ( fig 2-7 ) to amend, revoke, or rescind other orders.

c. Use DA Form 31 to amend, revoke, or rescind emergency leave authorized to a soldier or a soldier traveling with family members on DA Form 31.

d. Rescind only the unexecuted portion of the order if any action has been taken in compliance with the order.

e. When there is no evidence of fraud or obvious error and the soldier received actual or constructive delivery, orders discharging a soldier from the service will not be revoked after the effective date of discharge unless the revocation is a written confirmation of verbal orders actually issued before the effective date of discharge. (See the glossary for definitions of actual and constructive delivery.)

f. Distribution will include copies for the soldier concerned and one copy for each organization that received distribution of the original order. If a copy is being sent to a career branch for an Army Medical Department (AMEDD) officer, add the officer's AOC after the address, for example,"HQDA (TAPC-OPH-MS), Alexandria, VA 22332-0417 (AOC 67E)." Attach one copy of the original order to each amendment, revocation, or rescission being sent to —

(1) An organization that was not on the distribution list for the original order.

(2) HQDA (ASNI-DAA-AO), HQDA (TAPC-MSR-R), HQDA (TAPC-(appropriate officer management division symbol)), or the Commander, U.S. Army Enlisted Records and Evaluation Center.

2-22. Corrections

An order may be corrected by the organization that published the original order to show the true state of affairs existing at the time the original order was published.

a. Do not change orders to reflect facts that did not exist at the time the original order was published. Issue only one corrected copy. Further corrections will be made by revoking and reissuing the order.

b. Center CORRECTED COPY about 1/2 inch from the top of the page. The number and date must be the same as the original order unless these items are being corrected.

c. Distribution will be the same as the original order.

2-23. Endorsements

a. Transition orders will not be endorsed. Exceptions to this policy are defined in (1) through (7) below.

(1) U.S. Army transition points will endorse Formats 501 and 526, including those issued by their headquarters, to show the actual effective date of discharge from active duty or release from active duty (REFRAD) when required under Format 501, note 9; and Format 526, note 3.

(2) The CG, ARPERCEN, may endorse discharge from active duty and REFRAD orders. See figures 2-8 and 2-9 for a sample endorsement.

(3) The Commander, U.S. Army Enlisted Records and Evaluation Center, may endorse discharge from active duty and REFRAD orders.

(4) U.S. Army transition points may endorse Formats 501 and 526 to show the transition point where the soldier is being transitioned when the soldier reports to the wrong transition point.

(b) The organization that published the original order has been inactivated.

(c) The organization that published the original order is a Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS).

(2) USAR soldiers on IADT. Distribution will include copies for the soldier concerned, one copy for the troop program unit if the unit is shown in the distribution block of the original order, and one copy for the MPRJ.

e. On declaration of full mobilization, commanders of U.S. Army personnel assistance points are authorized to divert soldiers by endorsing PCS orders issued by another headquarters. Use Format 423 or Format 424 for all other diversions.

2-24. True copies

True copies may be made of an order or a part of an order.

a. Use the same heading, authority line, and signature block as the original order.

b. When preparing true copies of other order formats, use asterisks to show where a name or names within a paragraph have been omitted and to show where a paragraph or paragraphs have been omitted. One set of asterisks can mean that one or more names have been omitted or that one or more paragraphs have been omitted. (Para 7-3 lists the names alphabetically.)

c. Place the statement"A TRUE COPY," the typed signature block of the person authenticating the true copy, and the distribution block of the true copy below the signature block shown on the original order.

d. The official authorized to authenticate orders under paragraph 2-18 is also authorized to authenticate true copies. The person authenticating the true copy will sign above his or her typed signature block.

2-25. Files

a. An orders consolidation is the compilation of all orders issued during the day and brought together as a record set by one of the following methods:

(1) Each work center or office that publishes orders will prepare a cover sheet and attach one copy of each order published during the day. The cover sheet will identify the date of the orders consolidation, orders included in the consolidation, orders excluded because the number was not used, and orders that are classified and excluded (include the security classification). For example,"This consolidation consists of orders 8-1 through 8-34 issued 8 January 1990. Orders 8-8 through 8-15 were not used. Order 8-30 was excluded (Secret)." The cover sheet and attached copies of orders will be given to the office within the orders-issuing activity that maintains the consolidated orders log.

(2) Each work center or office that publishes orders will collect all orders published each day and make a notation at the top of the first order of the day. The notation will show the orders included in the consolidation, orders excluded because the number was not used, and orders that are classified and excluded (include the security classification). For example,"This consolidation consists of orders 5-1 through 5-15. Orders 5-3 and 5-4 were not used. Order 5-14 was excluded (Confidential)."

b. File permanent orders permanently and separately from orders.

c. Maintain and dispose of record sets per AR 25-400-2 , table B-48.

d. File classified orders separately from unclassified orders, and safeguard classified orders per AR 380-5 ( DOD 5200.1-R ) according to the security classification of the order.

e. File DD Form 1610 and endorsements to orders per AR 25-400-2, table B-48.

f. Maintain a posted set of issued orders if needed.

2-26. DA Form 2446

a. If it is determined locally that a separate request for orders is needed, DA Form 2446 (Request for Orders) may be used to request orders. Using DA Form 2446 helps to ensure that data needed to make the action administratively complete and legally sufficient are included. A sample of a completed DA Form 2446 is shown in figure 2-10.

b. The distribution required for the order will be shown on DA Form 2446.

c. DA Form 2446 is available through normal Adjutant General publications supply channels.

d. DA Form 2446 will not be used to request TDY orders prepared on DD Form 1610 .

e. MILPER work centers that can produce automated orders using TACCS, TACCS-Enhanced (TACCS-E), or installation-level integrated database and subject area database multiuser open systems environment computers (para 13-4) will not use DA Form 2446.

f. Do not use DA Form 2446 to request emergency leave prepared on DA Form 31 . (Only use DA Form 2446 when Format 342 (para 5-1 ) is being used to authorize emergency leave to family members traveling without the soldier.)

Personnel Reassignment

4-1. Personnel reassignment-related orders

a. When personnel reassignment-related orders are executed, they will connect with the reassignment function outlined in table 4-1 .

b. The MILPER work center that produces personnel reassignment-related orders may be located at HQDA, MACOM, or the installation (MILPER Division or PSC) level. However, the personnel reassignment work center at the installation level in the Active Army publishes the majority of these orders.

4-2. Personnel reassignment-related formats

This chapter describes formats for preparing personnel reassignment-related orders at all echelons of Active Army and Reserve Components organizations. Formats 401, 405, 407, 410, 417, 418, 419, 424, 425, 452, and 745 are used for personnel reassignment-related orders and are shown in figures 4-1 through 4-11 , respectively.

4-3. Reserve Components personnel reassignment-related formats

Format 452 will be used for ARNGUS or USAR personnel only. (See fig 4-10 .)

4-4. Other personnel reassignment-related formats

Formats 405, 407, 410, 417, 418, 419, 424, 425, and 745 pertain to personnel reassignment-related orders that may be used at all echelons of Active Army and Reserve Components organizations. (See figs 4-2 through 4-9 and fig 4-11 .) DA Form 4187 (Personnel Action) will be used in lieu of orders formats (formerly Formats 420 and 421) to announce intrastation reassignment of either individuals or groups when no travel is involved.

4-5. Format 401 (Individual Deployed Soldier)

Format 401 will be used when the name of an operation is known, such as Operation Desert Storm (Saudi Arabia) and Operation Just Cause (Panama). (See fig 4-1 .) Format 401 will be used for preassigned replacements deploying from the home station, for preassigned replacements deploying from a losing installation whose ultimate assignment has been determined and who are joining the deployed portion of the unit without processing through the gaining unit home station, and for unassigned replacements deploying to the theater of operations. In addition, Format 401 will be used for preassigned replacements moving through CONUS Replacement Centers (CRCs) from the home station or from other than the home station, for unassigned replacements moving through CRCs, and for members of the Reserve Components and unassigned replacements requiring refresher training (para 14-3 ).

4-6. Modification of personnel reassignment-related formats

a. Personnel reassignment-related formats will not be modified unless a note to a format specifically authorizes the modification or unless additional leadlines are required for TDY (para 2-7 ) and the format does not have the necessary leadlines.

b. Orders issuing activities will add"Dependents: Yes or No" to the Additional instructions leadline to provide the transportation office with proof of dependents for soldiers on PCS orders.

c. Orders issuing activities will add"soldier is authorized consecutive overseas tour" (COT) leave to the Additional instructions leadline. (See AR 600-8-10 , paras 4-17 and 4-18, for COT leave.) For soldiers authorized to defer their COT leave or if the losing or gaining commander defers COT leave due to military necessity, the soldier's PCS orders will reflect in the Additional instructions leadline that the soldier is authorized COT leave and the reason for deferral.

d. Be sure to read all of the notes pertaining to a format before attempting to publish an order.

4-7. Temporary duty in connection with permanent change of station

a. When TDY in connection with a PCS will not exceed 1 day, cite only an MDC in the PCS order.

b. When TDY in connection with a PCS will exceed 1 day and is for on-the-job training, orientation training, briefings, or special instructions, cite both an MDC and accounting classification in the PCS order. The TDY en route will be approved by the command or activity requesting the TDY en route. Operation and Maintenance, Army (OMA), funds available to the benefiting command or activity will be charged for the per-diem allowances for the period of TDY en route. Travel allowances for the soldier from the old permanent station to the TDY station and from the TDY station to the new permanent station, which are in excess of travel allowances that would be payable for direct travel from the old permanent station to the new permanent station, will also be charged to the OMA funds available to the benefiting command or activity.

c. When TDY in connection with a PCS is to attend a school for individual training and TDY is to be performed en route to the new permanent duty station, cite both an MDC and an accounting classification in the PCS order. The MDC is used for travel allowances that are payable for direct travel from the old permanent station to the new permanent station, and excess travel allowances are chargeable to the applicable open allotments of the OMA appropriation per AR 37-100-(current fiscal year).

d. When TDY in connection with a PCS is to attend a school for individual training and TDY is not to be performed en route to the new permanent duty station, cite an MDC in the PCS order and an accounting classification in the TDY order. TDY (both travel allowances and per-diem allowances) will be charged to the applicable open allotments of the OMA appropriation per AR 37-100-(current fiscal year).

4-8. Reassignment orders

The response to the Assigned to leadline on reassignment orders will include assignment to one organization only, the UIC of the gaining organization, and the address of the gaining organization. Both the gaining organization and the duty station will be shown as a response to the Assigned to leadline when the soldier is being assigned to one geographical location with duty at another geographical location. If the address has an APO or FPO number, enter the country or island to which the soldier is being assigned in parenthesis after the APO or FPO number.

a. Authority. The response to the Authority leadline on reassignment orders will be"Not applicable" or"None" unless —

(1) The order is being issued by a commander who has not been delegated the authority to issue orders involving travel of MILPER by a MACOM supplement to this regulation or paragraph 1-16 of this regulation.

(2) The order involves more than one PCS within a fiscal year. If so, enter the following statement:"This additional fiscal year move is authorized by the Secretary of the Army per" (enter the specific paragraph or subparagraph of AR 614-6 or other authority that approved the action).

(3) The order confirms orders previously issued verbally (para 1-23 ).

b. Reporting date. Enter the following response to the Reporting date leadline on reassignment orders for enlisted intertheater transfers who are authorized travel or leave en route in CONUS and enlisted personnel being reassigned from CONUS to an overseas area who do not have approval to proceed to an overseas assignment at their own expense:"In accordance with your port call." Specific report dates facilitate accurate personnel reporting and strength accounting. Reassignment orders for all other enlisted personnel and all officers will show a reporting date calculated as follows:

(1) The reporting to a specific unit or the starting date of service school as specified in assignment instructions issued by the DA.

(2) When assignment instructions issued by a higher headquarters fail to specify a complete reporting date, the reporting date will be established as the earliest practical date in the personnel arrival month specified in the assignment instructions or as modified by appropriate delegated authority. The availability of the individual, leave, TDY, travel time, and date eligible for return from overseas (DEROS) will be considered when the reporting date is computed.

(3) For reassignments without change of station, the reporting date will be the scheduled date of departure plus the number of days leave authorized and TDY. If no leave or TDY is involved, the reporting date will be the scheduled date of departure.

(4) Discharges, REFRAD, and retirements processed by U.S. Army transition centers will be per AR 635-10 , chapter 3.

c. Retention at the losing organization. When a soldier will be retained at the losing organization for a period that precludes reporting to the gaining organization on or before the reporting date, AR 600-8-11, chapter 2 will be followed, and the commander of the losing organization will immediately advise the commander of the gaining organization of the delay before the reporting date in the original orders. Reassignment orders will be amended to include the recalculated reporting date, and the gaining commander will be advised accordingly.

d. Assignment changed after orders are published. The commander publishing the revocation, amendment, or diversion order will immediately notify the gaining organization shown in the original order that the soldier will not report. The revocation, amendment, or diversion order may be used for the notification if it is mailed promptly.

e. Reporting date changes. If reporting date changes, PCS orders must be amended and distributed to interested activities especially the losing and gaining units. See paragraph h below for exceptions.

f. Leave termination date. If leave termination date on soldier's DA Form 31 is greater than the reporting date in orders, then the reporting date in PCS orders takes precedence.

g. Deferment request. If the reporting date in orders or leave termination date is greater than the HQDA directed reporting date/month, then the PSC/MPD must process a deferment request.

h. Calculating reporting dates. The following provides guidance on how to calculate reporting dates.

(1) PCS moves when no overseas travel is required. Reporting date equals soldier's established departure date, plus any leave and TDY enroute, (plus normal travel time to and from TDY station, if applicable), plus normal travel time to the gaining station.

(2) PCS moves when overseas travel is required.

(a) CONUS to OCONUS. Reporting date equals availability date plus 10 days (to allow a port call window) plus normal travel time to gaining duty station. If actual reporting date remains within the 10 days window, no amendment to PCS order is required. Soldier will be instructed to report to the port of embarkation on date and time directed in port call instructions.

(b) OCONUS to CONUS. Reporting date equals availability date plus 10 days (to allow for a port call window) plus any leave and TDY enroute plus normal travel time from port of entry to TDY station plus normal travel time from TDY station to gaining duty station. If actual reporting date remains within the 10 day window, no amendment to PCS order is required. Soldier will be instructed to report to the port of embarkation on date and time directed in port call instructions.

(3) OCONUS TO OCONUS.

(a) OCONUS travel without portcall. See paragraph ( 1 ) above. An example of this travel is PCS within the same overseas command and ground transport is used.

(b) Portcall required. See paragraph (2)(b) above.

(4) TDY enroute. Ensure that —

(a) The days TDY enroute along with travel time to and from TDY stations are included in reporting date calculation.

(b) PCS orders also contain the proper leadline and reporting date to the TDY station. Also, see paragraph j below.

i. Reassignment for transition from the Army.

(1) If soldier will transition from the Army at the current duty station and no transition leave, excess leave, or PTDY is taken in conjunction with transition, the reporting date is not later than 0800 hours, the date of separation, release from active duty, or retirement.

(2) For CONUS based soldiers who will take transition leave, excess leave, and/or PTDY in conjunction with transition. The reporting date to the transition point/center or PSC that will process soldier for transition will be the date of the soldier's separation, release from active duty, or retirement date. Soldiers will accomplish all transition processing prior to departing on transition leave, excess leave, and/or PTDY according to DA Pamphlet 600-8-11 , table 2-1-2.

(3) For OCONUS based soldiers who will transition at a transition point servicing the port of entry. The reporting date to the transition point will be at least 2 days prior to the soldier's separation, release from active duty, or retirement date. Soldiers will be instructed to report directly to the transition point from the port of entry. Soldiers will complete transition processing at the transition point before departing on transition leave, excess leave, and/or PTDY.

(4) For OCONUS based soldiers who will transition in the same overseas area. The reporting date will be the same as paragraphs i(1) or (2) above.

(5) For soldiers being reassigned to a transition center/point of choice for transition processing ( fig 9-5 ). The reporting date in orders will be the retirement, release from active duty, or separation date, less normal travel time from the duty station to port of embarkation, less normal transient time between ports, less normal travel time from port of debarkation to transition point/center, less PTDY, excess leave, and/or transition leave, less 2 days processing time at transition center/point. For a soldier who will retire on 30 June of the current year and will take 15 days transition leave and 30 days PTDY prior to retirement, the reporting date in orders to the transition center/point would be 12 May of the current year (includes 2 days travel/transient time and 2 days processing time at transition center/point). Soldier will complete transition processing at the transition center/point of choice prior to departing on transition leave, excess leave, and/or PTDY.

j. Proper reporting date. It is equally important that SIDPERS clerks enter the proper reporting date in the SIDPERS departure transition. The reporting date must be the reporting date to the gaining PCS unit. The reporting date to TDY station will not be reported in the departure transaction.

4-9. North Atlantic Treaty Organization travel orders

Chapter 5
Personnel Plans and Actions

5-1. Personnel plans and actions-related orders

a. When personnel plans and actions-related orders are executed, they will connect with the following functions and multifunctional programs as outlined in table 5-1 :

(1) Awards and decorations.

(2) Enlisted transfers and discharges.

(3) Leaves and passes.

(4) Officer transfers and discharges.

b. The MILPER work center that produces personnel plans and actions-related orders may be located at HQDA, MACOM, or installation (MILPER Division or PSC) level. However, the personnel plans and actions work center at the installation level in the Active Army publishes the majority of these orders.

5-2. Personnel plans and actions-related formats

This chapter describes formats for preparing personnel plans and actions-related orders at all echelons of Active Army and Reserve Components organizations. Formats 320, 342, 344, 450, 500, 501, 502, 505, 520, 522, 530, 540, and 564 apply to personnel plans and actions-related orders and are shown in figures 5-1 through 5-13 , respectively.

5-3. Reserve Components personnel plans and actions-related formats

Formats 450 and 564 will be used for ARNGUS or USAR personnel only. (See figs 5-4 and 5-13 .)

5-4. Other personnel plans and actions-related formats

Formats 320, 342, 344, 500, 501, 502, 505, 520, 522, 530, and 540 pertain to personnel plans and actions-related orders that may be used at all echelons of Active Army and Reserve Components organizations. (See figs 5-1 through 5-3 and figs 5-5 through 5-12 .) DA Form 638-1 and an award certificate will be used in instead of Format 320 to announce award of AAM, ARCOM, and MSM when authorized by AR 672-5-1, chapter 2.

5-5. Modification of personnel plans and actions-related formats

Personnel plans and actions-related formats will not be modified unless a note to a format specifically authorizes the modification or unless additional leadlines are required for TDY (para 2-7 ) and the format does not have the necessary leadlines. Read all of the notes pertaining to a format before attempting to publish an order.

5-6. Use of provisional pass

a. General. DD Form 460 (Provisional Pass) serves as a travel order and/or as a substitute for DA Form 31 to document movement during unusual circumstances. When DD Form 460 will serve as both a travel order and a substitute for DA Form 31, instructions for issuing the form as a travel order apply.

(1) Travel order. DD Form 460 serves as a travel order when the cost of transportation and/or meal tickets is to be charged to the soldier. Do not issue DD Form 460 to serve as a travel order when the soldier is without funds and has a PCS or TDY order unless the soldier has been absent without leave for 30 days or more. The PCS or TDY order is the authority for issuing transportation requests and/or meal tickets. If the soldier is in a leave status not in conjunction with PCS or TDY and is without funds, issue DD Form 460 to support issuance of a transportation request and/or meal tickets. If a soldier in leave status is issued DD Form 460, do not change the soldier's duty status; the soldier remains in leave status.

(2) Substitute for DA Form 31. DD Form 460 serves as a substitute for DA Form 31 when necessary to provide soldiers with valid documentation for movement under the following conditions ( AR 190-45 , chapter 5 and FM 19-10 ):

(a) Soldiers who were apprehended for violations not serious enough to require further custody but cannot report to their stations within the time limit of existing orders because of the delay.

(b) Absentees whose detention is not authorized.

(c) Soldiers whose leave authorization was lost or destroyed.

b. Authority to issue DD Form 460. When DD Form 460 will serve as a travel order, personnel designated by the commander will issue DD Form 460 and sign it in the Issued by block. When DD Form 460 will serve as a substitute for DA Form 31 , the authorized military law enforcement authority will issue DD Form 460 and sign it in the Issued by block.

c. Preparation. All entries on the form, including the signature, will be in black or blue-black ink. DD Form 460 does not need to be typed. Instructions for completing DD Form 460 are in AR 190-45 , chapter 5.

d. Distribution when DD Form 460 serves as a travel order. The original (white) will be given to the soldier. The first copy (blue) will be sent to the installation transportation officer. Military law enforcement authorities surrendering the first copy to the installation transportation officer will note the action in a later military police report. The second copy (yellow) will be sent to the soldier's unit of assignment.

e. Distribution when DD Form 460 serves as a substitute for DA Form 31. The original (white) will be given to the soldier. The first copy (blue) will be kept by the preparing agency. The second copy (yellow) will be sent to one of the following:

(1) Appropriate personnel assistance point at the aerial port of embarkation if the soldier is in transit in compliance with PCS orders and overseas travel is involved.

(2) The soldier's gaining commander if the soldier is in transit in compliance with PCS orders and no overseas travel is involved.

(3) The soldier's unit of assignment.

f. Installation transportation officer. The installation transportation officer will use the first copy (blue) of DD Form 460 to document obligation of travel funds from HQDA Open Account--MILPER, Army. Transportation requests and meal tickets will be prepared in accordance with AR 55-355, chapter 53. The installation transportation officer will comply with AR 37-104-3, before the transportation request is given to the soldier. See JFTR , paragraph U7400, vol I, and AR 37-106, paragraph 3-24, for transportation furnished to soldiers without funds.

Retention

10-1. Retention-related orders

a. When retention-related orders are executed, they will connect with the retention function as outlined in table 10-1.

b. The MILPER work center that produces retention-related orders may be located at HQDA, MACOM, or the installation (MILPER Division or PSC) level. However, the retention work center at the installation level in the Active Army publishes the majority of these orders.

10-2. Retention-related formats

This chapter describes formats for preparing retention-related orders at all echelons of Reserve Components organizations. Formats 159 and 168 will be used for ARNGUS or USAR personnel only. (See figs 10-1 and 10-2 .)

10-3. Modification of retention-related formats

Retention-related formats will not be modified unless a note to a format specifically authorizes the modification or unless additional leadlines are required for TDY (para 2-7 ) and the format does not have the necessary leadlines. Read all of the notes pertaining to a format before attempting to publish an order.

Chapter 11
Recruiting

11-1. Recruiting-related orders

a. Recruiting is a work center that is excluded from AR 600-8 because it is not located within the MILPER Division. Because of the unusual nature of recruiting, the MEPS publishes orders described in this chapter.

b. When orders in the MEPS are executed, they will connect with the recruiting function. Format 100, Enlistment and Assignment, is the function of the recruiting work center.

11-2. Recruiting-related formats

This chapter describes Format 100 for preparing recruiting-related orders in the MEPS for prior service enlistees. The MEPS will use standardized formats prescribed by AR 601-270 , chapters 2, 3, and 6, to issue orders for all nonprior service enlistees. The MEPS will use Format 100 to enlist and assign prior service soldiers into the Regular Army (RA). (See fig 11-1 .) The MEPS will not modify Format 100 unless a note to the format specifically authorizes the modification or unless additional leadlines are required for TDY (para 2-7 ) and the format does not have the necessary leadlines. Read all of the notes pertaining to Format 100 before attempting to publish an order.

Chapter 12
Temporary Duty Orders and Emergency Leave Travel Orders

12-1. DD Form 1610

Table 12-1 is a checklist to review a completed DD Form 1610 . DD Form 1610 will be used to request and publish TDY orders unless Format 400 is more applicable. Figure 12-1 provides a sample of a completed DD Form 1610 prepared for one person and figure 12-2 provides a sample of a completed DD Form 1610 prepared for a group. Figures 12-1 and 12-2 also provide instructions for completing DD Form 1610. DD Form 1610 in an electronically generated format may be used if the form is an exact replica of DD Form 1610.

12-2. DA Form 31 as an emergency leave order

DA Form 31 will be used to authorize emergency leave travel to a soldier or soldier traveling with family members. Format 342 ( fig 5-2 ) will be used only when a family member is traveling on emergency leave without the soldier. (See AR 600-8-10, chapter 6 , for instructions for completing DA Form 31.)

12-3. Format 400

Format 400 may be used when the issuing agency has a mechanized preparation systems (for example, TACCS) or when DD Form 1610 is not available. (See fig 12-3 .)

12-4. Modification of temporary duty orders

TDY orders will not be modified by issuing agencies unless a note to DD Form 1610 or Format 400 (figs 12-1 through 12-3) specifically authorizes the modification. Senior Executive Service (SES) members may add their protocol precedence code (PPC) (for example, SES PPC-6, SES PPC-5, SES PPC-4, or SES PPC-3) to item 3 of DD Form 1610 to eliminate confusion that sometimes arises over billeting and transportation. Read all of the notes pertaining to a form or format before attempting to publish an order.

12-5. Amendment of temporary duty orders and emergency leave travel orders

a. When amending TDY orders issued on DD Form 1610, complete items 1 through 7, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, and item(s) requiring the amendment. Use the number of the original order in item 22 in accordance with paragraph 2-14b .

b. When amending emergency leave orders issued on DA Form 31 , complete items 1 through 7, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, and item(s) requiring the amendment. Use the number of the original order in item 29 per paragraph 2-14b.

c. When amending TDY orders issued on Format 400, use Format 700 ( fig 2-6 ) and follow the guidance provided in paragraph 2-14a .

12-6. Rescission or revocation of temporary duty orders and emergency leave orders

a. Use DD Form 1610 to rescind or revoke TDY orders issued on DD Form 1610. Complete items 1 through 7, 17, 18, 20, 21, and 22. Use the number of the original order in item 22 in accordance with paragraph 2-14b .

b. Use DA Form 31 to rescind or revoke emergency leave orders issued on DA Form 31. Complete items 1 through 7, 26, 27, 28, 29, and 30. Use the number of the original order in item 29 per paragraph 2-14 b.

c. Use Format 705 ( fig 2-7 ) to rescind or revoke TDY orders issued on Format 400. (See para 2-14 a .)

12-7. Continuation sheet for DD Form 1610

Use the reverse of DD Form 1610 or plain white paper for additional names, authorization, or additional information. Figure 12-2 illustrates the use of the reverse side of DD Form 1610 as a continuation sheet. When plain white paper is used as a continuation sheet, include the order number, the issuing agency, and the date of the order at the top of the page.

12-8. Distribution of temporary duty orders and emergency leave orders

Follow the instructions in paragraph 2-19 .

12-9. Abbreviations on DD Form 1610

a. Items 1, 10 b, and 21. Abbreviations for month and year are authorized.

b. Items 2 and 8. No abbreviations are authorized.

c. Item 3. Abbreviations for grade of rank are authorized.

d. Items 4, 5, 7, 17, 18, 19, and 20, and the distribution item. Abbreviations for States and abbreviations and brevity codes listed in AR 310-50 are authorized. The abbreviation for disbursing station symbol number (DSSN) is authorized.

e. Items 9 and 16. AR, MOS, DA, United States, APO, FPO, TDY, and Government transportation request (GTR) are authorized.

f. Item 11. United States, DC, and saint (St.) are authorized.

12-10. Roles and accountability

Pinpoint accountability for TDY travel will be maintained so that crime-conducive conditions of fraud, waste, and abuse may be effectively controlled. The order-requesting, order-approving, and order-authorizing officials within each command and subordinate activity or element will be designated in accordance with procedures established locally. Except under unusual circumstances or time-sensitive situations, the requesting official will not sign as the approving official, and the requesting official or approving official will not sign as the order-authorizing official. Facsimile signature stamps are not authorized. Each official will understand the position to which designated.

a. Requesting official. The requesting official is normally the traveler's supervisor or a person who has full knowledge of the purpose and requirement of the travel. This official ensures that the travel is required and that all entitlements and special authorizations are essential to the mission.

b. Approving official. The approving official is normally the person at the next higher level in the chain of command to the requesting official and shares the same accountability as the requesting official.

c. Order-authorizing official. The order-authorizing official ensures that costing is reasonable, entitlements are authorized under governing regulations, the correct accounting citation and traveler's DSSN are shown in item 19, and the order is properly distributed. The order-authorizing official will enter the accounting classification chargeable for advance payments, including appropriation, element of resource, document reference number, and fiscal station number. This official also ensures that item 19 has been signed by the appropriate official or a designated representative who certifies that funds are available. (See the example in fig 12-1 .)

12-11. Justification of temporary duty travel requirements

Table 12-1 lists minimum essential considerations needed to justify and verify TDY travel requirements. Officials who sign DD Form 1610 will be prepared to explain the reasonableness of their action to request, approve, and authorize orders for the expenditure of Government funds. By signing DD Form 1610, officials verify that the TDY travel is reasonably justified (subject to audit or inspection). The guide sheet in table 12-1 will be used as a daily desktop guide and a guard against abuse when officials prepare and issue TDY orders; however, officials do not have to complete the guide sheet for each TDY order unless required by local instructions. Order-requesting, order approving, and order-authorizing officials will use the pertinent guidelines listed in a through o below to ensure effective and efficient use of travel funds.

a. Question the reasonableness of the travel request based on the stated purpose and other information available.

b. Plan trips as far in advance as possible.

c. Ensure that the trip cannot be accomplished by other means (for example, correspondence or telephone).

d. Minimize the number of travelers required to accomplish the mission.

e. Ensure that the exact TDY location is shown.

f. Except under unusual circumstances, require the use of Government quarters and mess unless a certificate of nonavailability is obtained.

g. Use Government transportation whenever possible, particularly Government air.

h. Minimize the use of rental cars.

i. Combine visits within the same geographical area (for example, visit more than one location before returning to the home station).

j. Ensure that travel is performed by the most expeditious and economic means of transportation. POV, if authorized, will be least cost mode. If not, reimbursement will be limited to the constructive travel cost, including maximum use of special economy fares.

k. Use the Army charge card program whenever possible.

l. Ensure that amendments, rescissions, or revocations are issued with minimum delay.

m. Ensure that entitlements are stated and justified and authorized by governing regulations.

n. Ensure that travelers submit reviewed travel settlement vouchers to their servicing finance office within 5 days after completing TDY.

o. Ensure that the traveler is reminded to request a Government discount rate from the commercial lodging facility when required to stay in non-Government lodging facilities at the TDY site.

12-12. Requirement to review travel vouchers

Before travel vouchers are submitted to finance for payment, the traveler's commander or supervisor or designated representative will review the DD Form 1351-2 (Travel Voucher and Subvoucher) as required by AR 37-106, paragraph 1-21b.1. The purpose of this review is not to compute the payment but to ensure that the claim is complete, reasonable, and consistent with both the mission and authorized reimbursable expenses on DD Form 1610 .

12-13. Mandatory statements

Officials who sign the original DD Form 1610 will ensure that it reflects all entitlements and common statements necessary for the mission to alleviate or reduce the number of amendments, rescissions, or revocations after travel has been performed. As a minimum, the following mandatory statements will be entered in item 16, when applicable.

a. "Government quarters and mess will be used, if available."

b. "Special conveyance may be used."

c. "Travel vouchers will be submitted for review within 5 days after TDY is completed."

d. "Cost of insurance for rental vehicles not otherwise included in the basic agreement is not reimbursable."(Include this item in all travel orders authorizing rental vehicles in the United States and its territories and possessions, including Puerto Rico.)

e. "Soldiers are not authorized to report earlier than the date specified."

f. "Use of an existing Government facility (dining or billeting) would adversely affect the performance of the assigned mission. The assigned mission should be held to a minimum."

g. "When the Air Mobility Command cost is the appropriate cost to the Government for overseas travel, the Air Mobility Command cost should be shown instead of the GTR cost." (Include this item in all travel orders authorizing overseas travel).

h. The following statement (in English and Spanish) will be printed on all orders for personnel entering the Republic of Panama. This requirement includes personnel arriving from TDY or PCS from U.S. military installations. This requirement applies only to active duty U.S. Forces MILPER on official duty orders."In accordance with paragraph 5(A) of Article XVII of the agreement in implementation of Article IV of the Panama Canal Treaty of 1977, the above-named individual, member of the U.S. Forces, is exempt from customs inspections on entering or departing from the Republic of Panama when traveling on official orders.""De conformidad con el parrafo 5(A) del articulo XVII del acuerdo para la ejecucion del articulo IV del tratado del Canal de Panama de 1977, la-persona cuyo nombre aparece arriba, un miembro de las Fuerzas Armadas de los Estados Unidos, se encuentra exento de la inspeccion de aduanas, entrando o saliendo en mision oficial en la Republica de Panama."

i. "Travelers to the National Capital Region will contact the lodging success center before making lodging arrangements (1-800-821-6559). At the time of the telephone call, the traveler will be given a call-in number that will be placed in the upper right corner of DD Form 1610 ." (Include this item in all travel orders authorizing travel to the National Capital Region.)

j. "To reduce lodging costs, the traveler will request a Government discount at all lodging establishments."

Chapter 14
Mobilization

14-1. Graduated mobilization response

At any level of graduated mobilization response, the Active Army strength may be expanded or augmented by various categories of personnel.

a. Level 1: Support of contingency operations or operations plan execution not involving the involuntary OAD of members of the Reserve Components. Orders will cite 10 USC 688 (retirees retired UP 10 USC 1293, 3911, 3914, 6323, 8911, or 8914) or 10 USC 672(d) (voluntary Reserve Components members). Use special care when processing these accessions to ensure that the proper personnel mobilization category code is reflected in the order. (Personnel mobilization category codes will be used to identify categories of mobilized military personnel accessed to SIDPERS-AC as required by table 14-1 and table 14-3 .)

b. Level 2: Presidential selected Reserve callup. Reserve Component unit and individual mobilization augmentees may be involuntarily OAD when a Presidential selected Reserve callup is authorized. Orders of soldiers reporting for active duty because of a Presidential selected Reserve callup will cite 10 USC 673b as the authority and contain the proper personnel mobilization category code.

c. Level 3: Partial mobilization. In addition to growth in all personnel categories indicated in a and b above, members of the Individual Ready Reserve may be involuntarily OAD because of either a Presidential (10 USC 673a) or congressional (section 672, title 10, United States Code (10 USC 672)) declaration of partial mobilization. All soldiers involuntarily OAD because of a partial mobilization authority will have a reference to the appropriate USC and the proper personnel mobilization category code in their orders.

d. Level 4: Full mobilization. All pretrained Reserve Components individual, unit members, and retired members are available for involuntary OAD when Congress declares a full mobilization. Orders will cite 10 USC 671a (extension on active duty) or 10 USC 672 as appropriate and the proper personnel mobilization category code.

e. Level 5: Total mobilization. Total mobilization is declared when all available sources of military power have been OAD and unmet requirements remain for additional structure.

14-2. Contingency operations

a. For contingency operations that do not require the involuntary callup of Reserve forces or if there is a Presidential selected Reserve callup, the assignment restrictions in AR 614-30 , table 3-1 apply. HQDA will modify or rescind restrictions as appropriate and provide specific guidance on the publication of orders.

b. Unless otherwise directed by PERSCOM or HQDA, individual fillers and replacements in support of contingency operations will be deployed to the theater of operations in a TCS status. The soldier's current unit of assignment will publish deployment orders according to paragraph 4-5 and figure 4-2 . This order is sufficient to move a soldier through a processing activity (installation or unit replacement activity or CRC) to the theater of operations and return through the deployed unit's home station to the previous unit of assignment. Unless otherwise directed, PERSCOM will provide reporting dates and deployment instructions. Normally, soldiers will be returned to their previous unit of assignment after redeployment from the theater of operations. TCS orders will be published for soldiers being reassigned TCS to —

(1) A deploying unit before the unit's actual deployment to the theater of operations. This action does not apply to soldiers being crossleveled at the same installation before the unit deployment. This action does apply to soldiers being reassigned from the training base to a deploying unit at the same installation.

(2) A CRC or replacement activity en route to the theater of operations.

(3) The theater of operations without processing through a CRC or replacement activity.

c. Orders format 401 will be published for Reserve Components soldiers deploying to the theater of operation as individual fillers in a temporary tour of active duty (TTAD) status. PERSCOM will publish the order. This order is sufficient to move Reserve Components soldiers through a processing activity (installation or unit replacement activity or CRC) to the theater of operations and return to the mobilization site.

14-3. The mobilization process

a. With implementation of an operations plan in conjunction with any level of mobilization, assignment procedures will change from peacetime to wartime, including crossleveling to adjust unit strengths to meet deployment criterion in line with Army priorities to ensure mission capability. The force will be stabilized through use of"stop-loss" and"stop-movement" actions. In addition to the peacetime, by-name, assignment process, a bulk levy system may be implemented. Formats for mobilization orders are shown in figures 14-1 through 14-9 .

b. Mailgram will be used as follows:

(1) Upon declaration of a national emergency or determination of need for additional pretrained manpower, mobilization orders may be issued to retirees and individual reservists who are not members of Troop Program Units using format 163 ( fig 14-6 ). DA will utilize the Mobilization Personnel Processing System (MOBPERS) to rapidly notify activated personnel. Electronic orders will be passed to Western Union, which will utilize the U.S. Postal Service to deliver a"mailgram" to the soldier's home. Concurrently the ARPERCEN Orders System (AORS) will publish a record copy of the order and make normal distribution ( fig 14-11 ). AORS will use formats 700 and 705 for amendments and revocation of mobilization orders. Mobilization orders for individuals are not self-terminating. Upon early release or demobilization a REFRAD or discharge order is prepared by the installation AG.

(2) Mailgrams are used when rapid dissemination of an order is needed and the addressee is located at a nongovernmental location. An example of this situation is mobilization of the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) and retirees. Mailgrams are prepared by the originator and sent to Western Union Priority Services. The mailgram is then passed from Western Union to the U.S. Postal Service for transmittal to a major post office nearest the address of the recipient. Same day, next day or two day delivery is available along with normal services such as certified and business reply. Vender payment is required for the mailgram and any additional services required.

c. All Reserve Component personnel and retiree recalls will be considered Active Army after they are mobilized or recalled.

d. Table 14-2 contains order formats for OAD of ARNGUS and USAR personnel. Use these order formats to call individual Reserve Components and units to active duty.

e. During demobilization, the CONUSA will publish permanent orders to release ARNG and USAR units from active Federal service using Format 550 ( fig 14-9 ). The release from active duty date may precede the release date of soldiers who are delayed for various reasons (such as trail party and terminal leave). That is, the unit release date will generally coincide with the release of the main body from active duty.

f. The demobilization station will publish permanent orders in Format 745 ( fig 4-10 ) to move the unit back to the home station, place it under CONUSA control, and release the individual members from active duty.

g. The demobilization station will also publish individual release orders using Format 523 ( fig 9-7 ) or Format 500 ( fig 5-5 ) for Individual Ready Reserve, individual mobilization augmentees, or troop program unit members, whether on active duty under TTAD or mobilized, separating early as individuals (for example, nondeployables held under stop-loss and soldiers returned on emergency leave with no need to return to the advanced list of overseas returners for reassignment (AOR)). The demobilization station will coordinate with the CONUSA, the U.S. Army Reserve Command (ARCOM), or the State area commands (STARC) for unit of attachment or assignment for training purposes pending unit return. Use Format 620 ( fig 9-14 ) for recalled retirees reverting to retired status.

14-4. Mobilization-related orders

a. When mobilization-related orders are executed, they must connect with the manpower mobilization multifunctional program as outlined in table 14-2 .

b. Mobilization-related orders may be published at the HQDA level (PERSCOM or ARPERCEN), CONUSA level, or installation level (mobilization station). The home station, losing installation, or the CRC normally publishes deployment orders (Format 401) (paras 14-2 b and c ). CONUSA (para 14-3 e ) and the transition center located at the demobilization station publishes demobilization orders (para 14-3 f ).

14-5. Mobilization-related formats

This chapter contains formats ( table 14-2 ) for preparing mobilization-related orders at all echelons of Active Army and Reserve Component organizations. Formats for deployment orders and demobilization orders are listed in paragraph 14-3 above.

Chapter 15
Automation

Section I
Basic Information

15-1. Overview of automation

This chapter —

a. Describes the hardware and software automation tools available to commanders to improve efficiency in their MILPER work centers in the Active Army.

b. Authorizes units to add commercial workstations to their basic TACCS to increase access to the numerous Standard Installation/Division Personnel System (SIDPERS) software modules that have been fielded Army-wide.

c. Encourages the use of SIDPERS 2.75 software modules to produce orders until the installation support module and SIDPERS 3.0 software modules are fielded Army-wide.

d. Encourages the use of SIDPERS software module user instructions to operate software modules on TACCS.

15-2. Hardware tools

Commanders are encouraged to use the hardware tools described in this chapter. These tools are designed to —

a. Increase the automation capability of MILPER work centers.

b. Increase accessibility to the SIDPERS software that is currently fielded Army-wide.

15-3. Software tools

Commanders are encouraged to use the software tools described in this chapter. These tools are designed to —

a. Standardize the orders function Army-wide.

b. Reduce the time needed to perform the orders function.

c. Eliminate the need to use DA Form 2446 .

Section II
Policies

15-4. TACCS

a. TACCS was developed and fielded as the deployable automation system for the Army. It was designed specifically to help MILPER work centers perform their combat service support missions. To capitalize on the Army's investment in hardware, training, and software, all MILPER work centers with TACCS will maximize the use of TACCS in both the garrison and the field.

b. TACCS-E is a hardware upgrade that is scheduled for completion before SIDPERS 3.0 is fielded. TACCS-E is faster and more powerful than the basic TACCS and can accept a variety of commercial peripherals, including laptops.

c. MILPER work centers not yet fielded with TACCS or TACCS-E will use automation capabilities, both those that are organic and those belonging to the supporting data processing facility, as much as possible. For example, installation transition centers will use installation-level integrated database and subject area database multiuser open systems environment computers to produce orders via the installation support module. Table 15-1 lists order formats that can be produced using SIDPERS 2.75, SIDPERS 3.0, and installation support module 26.0 software.

15-5. Purchase of commercial workstations

Units are authorized to enhance their basic TACCS by adding commercial workstations subject to the following constraints:

a. Procurement action will conform to pertinent guidance issued by the Office of the Director of Information Systems for Command, Control, Communications, and Computers.

b. Justification for augmentation will be based on garrison requirements only.

c. Augmentation devices or software will be modified to obtain TACCS compatibility. Basic TACCS devices or Standard Army Management Information System software may not be altered.

15-6. Automation capabilities

a. All work centers fielded with a TACCS device will use the SIDPERS 2.75 software modules outlined in table 15-1 to produce orders until SIDPERS 3.0 software modules are fielded Army-wide.

b. Work centers not yet fielded with TACCS will use the automation capabilities described in paragraph 15-4 c above.

15-7. SIDPERS software module user instructions

a. Each SIDPERS system change package or interim change package that is fielded Army-wide comes with step-by-step user documentation developed by the MILPER functional proponent. The user documentation (approximately seven diskettes) is the TACCS operator's user manual and is updated with each new system change package or interim change package. After these user instructions are loaded onto the TACCS hard drive, they can be accessed through the procedures outlined in table 15-2 .

b. All MILPER work centers with TACCS will use the SIDPERS software module user instructions to assist them in performing their orders function.

c. MILPER functional proponents, field users, and system designers will recommend changes to these user instructions to the Personnel Information Systems Command using DA Form 2028 (Recommended Changes to Publications and Blank Forms).

Section III
Task: Accessing SIDPERS Software Module User Instructions

15-8. Rules for accessing SIDPERS software module user instructions

a. Functional proponents will develop step-by-step user instructions for each software module developed for TACCS.

b. The Personnel Automation Section will load the user instructions on the hard disk of each SIDPERS TACCS.

c. All work centers fielded with TACCS will use the SIDPERS software module user instructions to assist them in performing their orders function.

15-9. Steps for accessing SIDPERS software module user instructions

The steps for accessing SIDPERS software module user instructions are outlined in table 15-2 .
