1. IPPS-A UPDATE, 23 FEB 23.  From COL Rebecca Eggers, IPPS-A FMD: Teammates, as summer PCS assignments begin to process, I’d like to focus this week’s message on specific items regarding the orders/absence process and provide some information on what we are seeing with CRM cases.           a. Absence in Conjunction with PCS. We have received several questions regarding submitting absence requests in conjunction with PCS. Attached (at the above link) is a slide deck that shows how to request absence in conjunction with PCS with or without PTDY.      b. Member Elections. As more and more PCS assignments load from HRC to IPPS-A, we have provided some tips at the following link for your Soldiers to make their member elections, and information on overseas approval of command sponsorship.      d. We have heard that some on-post agencies are turning Soldiers away with these new PCS orders. While we have coordinated with Garrison Commanders to ensure agencies are aware of the new formats, if Soldiers are turned away, please let us know immediately so we can contact those installations directly.      e. CRM Cases. I have noted previously that the number of HR cases continues to grow. As a reminder, cases default to an HR case. In several instances where Soldiers were told by their S1s to submit a CRM case, these cases are then sitting in the S1 Provider Group not being actioned. S1s should make a habit of checking to see if they have cases at least daily by going to the My Cases tile or Case Management tile.  We do still hear challenges with CRM cases getting closed. We will continue to work closely with the Tier 1 Helpdesk to ensure cases are closed after resolution is confirmed. If your case is closed without resolution, you should immediately re-open the case. Additionally, when Soldiers submit cases, providing as much information and documentation as possible ensures more timely action of the case.      f. HRC has taken the lead on providing guidance to the field regarding BOCO assignments. Please find attached (at the above link) the information regarding sending information to HRC to ensure those Soldiers who already PCSd but are still waiting assignment are processed quickly. 2. “CHEVRONS”, ISSUE: 9, MARCH 2023. From HRC Military Schools Branch SGM: “I am excited to provide you with the most recent copy of our “CHEVRONS” Newsletter. This is issue# 9, and it provides some of our enlisted training updates.

USAR units demobilizing at MFGIs are directly supported by AMPOs to ensure Soldier pay and entitlement actions are properly administered prior to returning to home station.  Part of this process requires AMPOs to process DA 31 Leave and Pass forms for all Soldiers.  With the implementation of IPPS-A, the manual “leave process” has transitioned to a Payroll Absence Request (PAR) automated process in IPPS-A.  This is known as an “Absence” and replaces the legacy term “Leave and Pass”.
