Direct-Access PCS, TDY, & Reserve Orders Outage.

1. DA Orders Accounting Data Conversion to FSMS Standard (ALCGPSC 06/22):  ‚ÄčAt 2000 EST, Wednesday, 12 January 2022, availability to Direct Access orders will be read-only for all users. The scheduled reactivation of full access to orders in Direct Access is 0001 EST, Wednesday, 19 January 2022, and is based on the successful conversion of all FY22 orders. This lockdown is necessary to support the deployment of FSMS. During this period of read-only availability, all FY22 orders will be converted to utilize FSMS accounting data. This applies to all Direct Access orders types: ETQC, PCS, separations, and reserve orders. Units may issue orders via memorandum to authorize travel in urgent and emergency situations.

E-Gov Travel System  (ETS) Status (updated 1000 hrs. Jan 07)

1. Maintenance Completed:  Data migration is complete and the system ready for use. 

2. Vouchering: The ability to enter travel vouchers in ETS is now available.

3. Vouchering prior FY travel: As part of the cutover to FSMS, the Coast Guard migrated open travel obligations. Authorizations will appear in ETS for the member to voucher. Members will select the open authorization within ETS and create a voucher. Members will not need to select accounting information for the Project, Organization, Expenditure and Task (POET) because prior year TONOs were migrated to reimburse against the prior year expenditures. The vouchers should only require approval from an ETS approving official.

4. Current FY Travel: Please be aware that Training, PCS, and Reserve Orders from Direct-Access (DA) will not be available in ETS pending completion of the accounting data conversion during the DA outage described above.

2. The Commanding Officer's (CO's) recommendation for advancement (Ready) 
must be maintained for the period from recommendation to advancement.  
In addition, E-7, E-8, and E-9 candidates must not have an unsatisfactory 
conduct mark on an enlisted evaluation for 24 months prior to the 
terminal eligibility date. Personnel failing to maintain the CO's 
recommendation (Ready) for this period shall be invalidated from the 
Service Wide Exam (SWE) and Master Chief Advancement Panel (MCAP) in 
which they participated. Personnel who have been invalidated must be 
recommended and qualify again through a new SWE or MCAP competition.
3. COs shall determine if advancement eligibility requirements for the 
authorized grade have been met. Per Ref B, specific changes and 
instructions for EPQs and RPQs are now captured in a semi-annual memo 
approved by FORCECOM Training Division at http://cglink.uscg.mil/
320dcb99. If appropriate, a CO shall withhold or cancel the advancement 
of ineligible personnel per Article 3.A.21, 3.A.27.f or 4.D.3 of Ref A. 
When advancement is to be withheld or cancelled, the CO shall advise 
PPC (ADV) by e-mail via AOIX at CMD-SMB-CG-PPC with CG PSC as 
information addressee at CMD-SMB-CG-PSC. Please note C2OIX does not 
transfer to AOIX. See CG PSC-EPM Portal site at
https://cg.portal.uscg.mil/units/psc/psc-epm/SitePages/Advancements.aspx
for additional guidance. 
4. Per Ref D, the requirement for all E-6 members to attend the Chief 
Petty Officer Academy (CPOACAD) prior to advancement to Chief Petty 
Officer is temporarily suspended. Members must attend CPOACAD prior to 
advancement to Senior Chief Petty Officer. Members must have 
successfully completed the Senior Enlisted Leadership Course (SELC) 
prior to advancement to Master Chief Petty Officer. COMDT (CG-128) is 
the Program Manager for the enlisted leadership continuum and the 
single point of contact for all requests for CPOACAD and SELC waivers 
from advancement policy.
5. Per Article 3.A.10 of Ref A, personnel in certain ratings must meet 
security clearance requirements for advancement.
6. COs shall ensure personnel advancing to pay grades E-7 thru E-9 
obligate required service prior to advancement per Article 3.A.21.c of 
Ref A. 
7. The rank order number for each individual identified for advancement 
in the EPAA is no longer indicated. The original rank order number may 
be found at the Pay and Personnel Center CG Portal site 
https://cg.portal.uscg.mil/units/ppc/SitePages/Advancements%20and%20Eva
luations%20Branch.aspx but is subject to change. This EPAA, to include 
unit designations, will be available on PPC's CG Portal site.
8. Upon approved advancement, members are authorized to change their 
RANK as it appears in the Global Address List (GAL) from the Self 
Service portal at https://EDMS.uscg.mil/SelfService. This can be done 
as a standard user without requiring admin-privileges, does not require 
a call to CGFIXIT, and does not require a CGFIXIT Ticket. See this 
self-help tech-tip for more information at
