 1. IPPS-A UPDATE, 6 FEB 23.  From COL Rebecca Eggers, IPPS-A FMD:  Some key points from this update follow.  View the entire update at the following link. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1227099      a. We continue to get RFIs on provisioning. We have also seen issues with completing actions that are often a result of not having the right roles and permissions. We have taken the task to make the roles/permissions more streamlined; however, we won’t be able to do that in the near-term. Professionals and Commanders need to be correctly provisioned within IPPS-A to be able to conduct their daily tasks…. I’ve attached a provisioning overview to help you with requesting proper access for your responsibilities. By reviewing your roles/permissions first, it helps us get to the root cause of system issues as well. We are here to help and I hope you will all continue to share the solutions broadly.      b. I’ve also attached a schedule of additional MPD Refresher Training sessions. This document highlights topics, dates/times, and how to enroll. The training will provide a refresher for executing human resources and applicable pay actions using IPPS-A. These are not only great sessions for our MPDs, but also help all units learn the end-to-end process to assist in supporting the field.      c. We hear the 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. However, there are also a growing number of cases that are sitting with unit level provider groups. All cases, unless initially submitted as an IT case to go directly to Tier 1, are created as HR cases and go to the lowest level provider group (typically the BN S1). In some cases, these provider groups were created, but personnel not assigned. You may have Soldiers in your units that submitted cases that are waiting to be actioned. I have previously shared the Provider Group set up deck and will post that on S1Net for your use, but this backlog is growing and requires your action.      d. Lastly, I’d like to mention absence requests. Absence requests submitted via IPPS-A are not submitted through the local finance offices. These requests send directly to DJMS, the pay system. While we understand that several finance offices across the Army have noted they are not taking absence requests submitted via IPPS-A, this demonstrates a lack of understanding on how these absence requests are completed and processed. The DA31 is a thing of the past. All units should absolutely be having Soldiers submit absence requests via IPPS-A as this also ensures the duty status is recorded appropriately.      e. We will continue to post the listing of known issues on our website and encourage you to reference that list frequently as it also includes answers to common questions we get from the field. We are committed to working through the issues with you and the entire team is on hand to do that, so please continue to pass the issues you are finding to us. For a list of known issues please go to https://ipps-a.army.mil/ipps-a-known-issues/. 2. MERITORIOUS UNIT CITATION (MUC) ORDER FOR APPROVED UNITS INVOLVED IN AFGHANISTAN RETROGRADE OPERATIONS. From HRC Awards and Decorations Branch: Attached at the following link is a copy of the final permanent order for the Afghanistan Retrograde Operation. Starting on 6 Feb 23, HRC began mailing out the citations and certificates to all main units for distribution. Individual units will receive the citations and certificates from their higher commands. Please do not send inquiries to HRC seeing awards elements, they are being distributed. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1227086    3. ACFT AND EVALUATIONS. From HRC Evaluations Branch: So, you don't want an evaluation returned right?  Well, we are experiencing an uptick in error rates for the AC both Officers and NCOs. OER error rates have increased 2% and NCOER by 1%. That’s not a big percentage but when you think of the volume of reports being around 2,500+ per day, it starts to add up. Remember to use MILPER MESSAGE 22-333, but here is a PowerPoint (at the following link) that will give you some visuals. If you are Guard and Reserve, this hasn't hit you in force yet, but getting the information out early and often may help. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/message/1013115 4. FY23 420A, HUMAN RESOURCES TECHNICIAN, CRITICAL TASK SITE SELECTION BOARD (CTSSB) SURVEY. The AG School Commandant and Chief Warrant Officer of the AG Corps request the participation of 420As and their supervisors, across all components, in the FY23 420A, Human Resources Technician, Critical Task Site Selection Board (CTSSB) Survey.  Your participation in this survey is the important first step in identifying critical individual tasks, by grade, for 420As, and will shape institutional training provided to 420As throughout PME. The outputs of this survey will inform the in-person CTSSB to be conducted at Fort Jackson, SC from 27-31 Mar 23.  The survey should only take 5-10 minutes, and can be found at the following link. https://survey.tradoc.army.mil/EFM/se/197944BA1D51B972 5. IPPS-A QUESTIONS.  (If you can assist, please do so.)      a. RFO CONFIRMATION. How does the S1 track RFOs if the process is between IPPS-A, the Soldier and the MPD? Is there an alert or email for the Soldier's servicing S1 similar to the automated message/alerts we receive from HRC? https://www.milsuite.mil/book/message/1012818      b. S1 USER PROFILE. I am S1 HR Professional - how do I update my user profile (email -- health.mil) when the PROFILE tab is not available under the Navigation bar? https://www.milsuite.mil/book/message/1012820      c. PULLING YMAV FROM IPPS-A. We have attempted to pull YMAV with predefined queries and unit slotting, but are not having luck finding it. The predefined query only showed a few YMAVs with hundreds more missing. Has anyone had any luck pulling YMAV for both Officer and Enlisted with consistency? https://www.milsuite.mil/book/thread/276140 6. ARMY RESERVE FLAG SNAPSHOT JANUARY 2023. The Army Reserve Flag snapshot for the month of January is attached.  Commands may access their specific flag data in RCMS (CSMM) under Presentations. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-1226461 7.
