1. This message announces key dates, responsibilities, and policies
for commands and SELRES members when scheduling Inactive Duty
Training (IDT) drills, Readiness Management Periods (RMP), and
Additional Training Periods (ATP) in FY22. Pay for duty performed
not in compliance with this policy and REFs (A) through (D) may be
subject to recoupment.
2. SELRES members may schedule and complete IDT during all months
of FY22, with particular attention to critical dates and scheduling
deadlines in paragraph 7. Reserve training for position-based
competencies are the priority for each member. The first three
quarters of the FY (October through June) represent the broadest
opportunity for scheduling flexibility. Fiscal demands at the end
of the FY reduce flexibility in the fourth quarter. Members and
commands must make every effort to finalize drill schedules well
in advance to minimize changes and waiver requests during the
fourth quarter.
3. IDT Drills for pay in FY22:
   a. SELRES members are limited to 48 IDT drills for pay. No
waivers will be authorized. SELRES members who perform more paid
IDT than authorized will be in an overpaid status, and as such,
drills will be corrected from paid to without pay (points only)
and the pay recouped.
   b. SELRES members must follow local unit/District (dxr)/PAC-13
guidance with regard to IDT lodging.
   c. With command approval, SELRES members may batch drills and
perform drills in excess of the quarterly allocation of 12 paid
IDT drills. In addition to command approval, SELRES members who
request IDT lodging must have approval from their servicing District
(dxr)/PAC-13 prior to scheduling and batching IDT drills.
   d. Members serving on active duty for a full calendar month are
not eligible to perform or make up drills for that month, per
Chapter 3.B.1.r.(2)(a) of REF (B). Example: BM2 Smith performs
active duty from 15 November 2021 to 15 January 2022. BM2 Smith
cannot make up the four (4) IDT drills missed in December and
authorized paid IDT drill cap for the member will be adjusted to
44 drills.
   e. SELRES members leaving the Service voluntarily (retirement or
discharge) or involuntarily (non-selected for promotion,
non-continued, etc.) may only complete the number of drills
corresponding to their separation date. Example: CDR Smith is not
selected for retention and is required to leave active status
NLT 30 June. CDR Smith may complete a maximum of 36 paid IDT drills
for the period 01 October 2021 to 30 June 2022 and is subject to
the limitations of paragraph 3.d above.
4. ATP Drills for pay in FY22:
   a. ATP allocation will be provided SEPCOR.
   b. To support unit-level planning, SELRES members assigned to
Port Security Units (PSUs), Naval Coastal Riverine Squadrons
(CORIVRONs), and Naval Coastal Riverine Groups (CORIVGRUs) are
authorized to schedule up to 12 ATPs starting on 01 October 2021
in advance of specific ATP guidance. No ATPs will be completed or
paid prior to the release of FY22 ATP allocation guidance. SELRES
members will utilize all authorized paid IDT drills before utilizing
ATPs.
   c. SELRES members not assigned to PSUs, CORIVGRUs, and CORIVRONs
are not authorized to schedule or complete ATPs (paid or unpaid).
Waiver processes will be issued SEPCOR. 
   d. SELRES members serving on active duty for a full calendar
month or more will not be eligible to make up ATPs for that period
of active duty, as described in paragraph 3.d.
5. RMP Drills for pay in FY22.
   a. Each SELRES member is authorized a single RMP for pay, unless
otherwise noted below, for the entirety of FY22, IAW Chapter
2.A.2.c. of REF (B). The single RMP for pay may be for any purpose
listed within Chapter 2.A.2.c.(1)(a)-(h) of REF (B). Per Chapter
2.A.2.c. (5)(c) of REF (B), RMPs completed that are not in
compliance with policy are subject to cancellation and pay recouped.
   b. Each SELRES member who takes the October 2021 Reserve
Service-wide Exam (RSWE) is authorized one additional RMP for pay
unless the SELRES member is already scheduled to perform IDT with
the assigned unit.
   c. Waiver requests for RMPs for CDAR-directed screenings, OMSEP
medical appointments, weight compliance medical appointments, and
command-directed medical screenings, as outlined in Chapter 2.A.2.c.
(1)(e)-(h) and 2.A.2.c.(2)(m) of REF (B), must be submitted to
COMDT (CG-R82) IAW paragraph 9 below.
   d. Only PSC-RPM will authorize paid RMPs for medical appointments
in connection with a Notice of Eligibility (NOE).
6. IDT, ATP, RMP Management Responsibilities.
   a. Scheduling. 
      (1) IDTs, ATPs, and RMPs for pay must be scheduled in Direct
Access as early as possible, and NLT 30 June 2022 unless otherwise
exempted by this ALCOAST. Drills should remain in a scheduled status
to enable members to reschedule drills without having to request a
waiver. All IDTs, ATPs, and RMPs must be scheduled and approved in
Direct Access in advance of SELRES members reporting for duty. Upon
a SELRES member request, commands will issue written orders as soon
as possible before the scheduled duty period(s), to allow the SELRES
member time to provide notification to a civilian employer. All
applicable berthing requirements must also be met prior to the
member reporting for duty.
   b. Approving and processing. 
      (1) SELRES members must notify their supervisors (email is
recommended) of IDT completion before leaving the unit. IDT that
remains in a "scheduled" status past the duty date is subject to
cancellation.
      (2) Supervisors of SELRES members must ensure IDT drills are
validated, placed in a "completed" status in Direct Access, and
forwarded to the SPO within two working days of IDT drill
completion.
      (3) SPOs must process payment within three working days of
receiving notification that IDT drills have been placed in a
"completed" status in Direct Access.
   c. Monitoring and validating. 
      (1) Accurate and timely management of IDT is a command
responsibility. To strengthen internal controls and oversight of
Reserve Training funds, District (dxr)/PAC-13/DOL-1 and RFRS staff
must complete regular (at least monthly) reviews of IDT, RMP, and
ATP drills to ensure drill periods are being requested and executed
in a timely manner and IAW this ALCOAST. 
      (2) District (dxr)/PAC-13 funds managers will continuously
monitor their IDT lodging accounts, especially when authorizing
batching of IDT, and provide funding concerns to the appropriate
POCs identified in paragraph 10 below.
      (3) Quarterly Inactive Duty Status reports are available at
the following URL:
(Copy and Paste URL Below into Browser)

https://cg.portal.uscg.mil/units/CG-R/Quarterly%20IDT%20Validation/
Forms/AllItems.aspx

District (dxr)/PAC-13/DOL-1 and RFRS staff should filter for their
tenant commands and take appropriate action to ensure timely
validation. In addition, IDT Pay Validation and Closing Entry
Procedures, including the Quarterly Inactive Duty Status Report
(QIS) validation process, will be directed by COMDT (CG-R82) during
FY22.
7. FY22 Scheduling Deadlines.
   a. 01 October 2021: Scheduling commences for FY22 IDTs and RMPs.
SELRES members assigned to PSUs, CORIVRONs, and CORIVGRUs may
schedule up to 12 ATPs IAW paragraph 4.B above.
   b. 30 June 2022: All paid IDTs, RMPs, and ATPs must be scheduled
in Direct Access unless otherwise exempted by this message. When
required, waivers must be submitted IAW paragraph 9 below.
8. Rescheduling requirements. 
   a. Notification to reschedule must be provided to the applicable
Area/DOL (LANT-1/PAC-1/DOL-1) and District (dxr)/PAC-13, if IDT
lodging has been authorized or is requested. 
   b. Units do not need to request a waiver (IAW paragraph 9) to
reschedule an IDT, RMP, or ATP for pay that is (1) in a scheduled
status (i.e., not approved by a supervisor) in Direct Access, and
(2) if the rescheduled duty is for the same duty type. Paid IDT,
RMP, or ATPs are not exchangeable duty types. 
   c. SELRES members who fail to follow rescheduling requirements
risk cancellation of duty or performance of duty without pay (for
points only).
9. Waivers. Paid IDT scheduling or re-scheduling of approved drill
requests require COMDT (CG-R82) authorization after 30 June 2022.
Waivers are encouraged to be submitted as early as possible and
not delayed for the purposes of batching.
   a. Waivers requiring COMDT (CG-R82) IDT/RMP/ADT Waiver Form: All

IDT drills (not to exceed 4 drills per month for the remainder of
FY22) and ATPs (if authorized by paragraph 4.b) without a waiver.
