Reserve Classification and Category on RELAD Transactions

PRINT  |  E-MAIL

Currently, upon completion of a RELAD or reserve status change, users are able to select a Training/Pay Category (TRAPAY CAT) that is invalid for the member's intended reserve classification.

For example, a reservist in the IRR cannot have a TRAPAY CAT of "A", yet the system is allowing a user to select this invalid combination. Despite specific user guidance and several reminders from PPC (sep), users continue to enter these invalid combinations several times each cycle, which can result in the orders integration process failing to complete successfully.

We have recommended implementing an edit (which did exist in DA 8.0) which will prevent the entry of invalid reserve classification/TRAPAY CAT combinations. Per, Chap 1 and Appendix A of the Reserve Policy Manual, COMDTINST M1001.2 (series), the only valid combinations are:

Reserve
Classification
Allowable Training
Pay Category
SELRES A, B, C, D, F, M
IRR E, H, J, P
ASL G, N
ISL I

 

Until this edit is implemented (if it is implemented), SPO auditors must pay special attention to the TRAPAY CAT on all RELAD and reserve status change transactions to ensure the codes are allowable (per the table above). Do not approve any transaction without first verifying the accuracy of the classification and training pay category.
