1. This ALCOAST announces key deadlines Selected Reserve (SELRES)
members and commands must adhere to when scheduling Active Duty for
Training (ADT) in FY22. Duty must be performed IAW REFs (A) through
(C), along with related Reserve Instructions and Manuals, or
may be subject to recoupment.
2. A ready Reserve Component (RC) is key to strengthening national
preparedness, resilience, and maintaining the Coast Guard's
relevance and ability to respond to contingencies. It requires
leadership to create an environment that enables reservistsâ€™
competency attainment. Commands and supervisors should forecast
unit training plans and link them to ADT schedules well in advance
to maximize SELRES training opportunities and resulting competency
3. SELRES members may complete ADT throughout FY22 (from 01
October 2021 to 30 September 2022) if the requested ADT has been
approved and scheduled in Direct Access by the established deadline
below. Particular attention should be paid to the critical dates and
scheduling deadlines in Paragraph 8 below to ensure requested orders
are funded. Scheduling deadlines are intended to promote unit-level
planning that supports both operational and financial management
4. FY22 Active Duty Training â€“ Other Training Duty (ADT-OTD) policy:
COMDT (CG-R82) anticipates limited ADT-OTD funding to be available
for FY22. No SELRES member is authorized to perform ADT-OTD until
funds have been provided to, and duty is authorized by, the District
(dxr)/PAC-13 funds manager. ADT-OTD must be prioritized for C-school
quotas and structured training that leads to the completion of a
billet-assigned competency. ADT-OTD orders exceeding 30 days, for
any reason not listed in Chapter 2.B.7.a, must be authorized by
5. FY22 Initial Active Duty for Training (IADT) policy: IADT orders
for recruit training (boot camp, DEPOT, and A-school) may be
entered, processed, and executed at any time during FY22. To ensure
the correct generation of accounting data to charge the Reserve
Training (RT) appropriation, IADT orders for SELRES members
attending recruit training should be created and approved using
the "RT" funding DEPTID 048357.
6. FY22 Active Duty Training - Annual Training (ADT-AT) policy:
a. In FY22, SELRES members are authorized 12 days of ADT-AT
(exclusive of travel). SELRES members assigned to PSU, Naval Coastal
Riverine Squadrons (CORIVRON) and Naval Coastal Riverine Groups
(CORIVGRU) are authorized 15 days of ADT-AT (exclusive of travel).
b. Per Chapter 3.B.1.r.(1) of REF (B), the AT requirement is met
by the completion of Initial Active Duty Training (IADT), ADT-AT,
and by Active Duty Other than for Training (ADOT) (e.g., Active Duty
for Operational Support (ADOS), Extended Active Duty (EAD), as long
as the duty is rating, specialty, or position related training.
The duty may be performed through on-the-job training (OJT) or
formal school completion. Members who enter the SELRES after
completing 30 days or more of active duty are not obligated to,
nor prohibited from, completing the 12 days ADT-AT requirement
within the same fiscal year, or any other type of active duty,
if funds are available and with District (dxr)/PAC-13 approval.
c. Priority must be given to training for completion of billet-
assigned competencies, Watch Quarter and Station Bill (WQSB)
qualifications, and advancement requirements. Commands and
supervisors must ensure SELRES members coordinate ADT with C-school
convening dates or other formal training. Only after completing
all of these requirements may SELRES members request ADT for other
professional development. Commands and supervisors must validate
ADT requests against position competency requirements, as well as
formal school schedules and available quotas in CG-TMS, to ensure
SELRES members do not utilize their ADT prior to issuance of formal
d. Per Chapter 2.B.7 of REF (B), District (dxr)/PAC-13 may issue
ADT-AT (and ADT-OTD) orders in excess of 12 or 15 days for formal
school attendance for rating or qualifications, subject to
availability of funds.
e. SELRES members (new accessions or members who RELAD from
active duty) who affiliate at any time during FY22 are authorized
to perform ADT subject to availability of funds.
f. SELRES members who have submitted a Reserve Retirement
Transfer Request (Form CG-2055A), or Change of Reserve Component
Category (Form CG-1001), or who plan to separate or retire during
FY22, are not authorized to perform ADT-AT or ADT-OTD unless duty
is necessary to meet operational requirements or demands. This
requirement must be validated by a Commanding Officer, Officer-in
-Charge, or an O-5 or above in the SELRES memberâ€™s chain of command,
and is subject to funds availability and District (dxr)/PAC-13
g. Non-consecutive ADT: ADT-AT is generally performed in
consecutive days. Non-consecutive ADT-AT may be performed when
a command determines the nature of the training allows its
accomplishment in small increments or to accommodate attendance
at formal training courses that are less than 12 days in duration.
Non-consecutive orders must be approved by the servicing District
(dxr)/PAC-13 and are subject to the availability of funds. When
non-consecutive orders are authorized, travel allowances must be
authorized IAW the Joint Travel Regulations. Prior to requesting
non-consecutive ADT-AT orders, the SELRES member must receive
approval from their command (Commanding Officer, Officer-in-Charge,
or an O-5 or above). District (dxr)/PAC-13 should carefully consider
the service need and identify any increased travel costs (in excess
of consecutive ADT-AT orders) resulting from the non-consecutive
7. ADT-AT Management Responsibilities:
a. Accurate and timely management of ADT orders is a command
and District (dxr)/PAC-13 responsibility. Reserve Activities
User Guides are available at:
(Copy and Paste URL Below into Browser)
Senior Reserve Officers (SROs), Senior Enlisted Reserve Advisors
(SERAs), and supervisors of SELRES members are highly encouraged
to read these helpful materials.
b. ADT orders must be scheduled in Direct Access no later than
30 June 2022.
c. Active duty orders must be generated in writing, in advance
of SELRES members reporting for duty IAW Chapter 2.B.3 of REF (B).
Orders should be issued at least 30 days before the scheduled duty
to allow SELRES members time to provide notification to civilian
employers and family members.
d. Supervisors and Travel Authorizing Officials must notify
the funding District (dxr)/PAC-13 staff when a travel claim
exceeds the funds authorized on orders in an â€œauthorizedâ€
status or if there are changes impacting expenses related to
e. Per REF (D), SELRES members must ensure their ADT travel
arrangements are submitted through the E-Gov Travel System (ETS).
ETS is scheduled to go-live on 01 October 2021. Additional guidance
regarding the use ETS will be provided SEPCOR.
f. District (dxr)/PAC-13 funds managers must ensure obligations
and expenditures do not exceed FY22 distributions IAW Chapter 5.6
of REF (C). To comply with Chapter 188.8.131.52.2 of REF (C), funds
managers must continuously monitor their accounts to ensure
obligations for approved ADT (and other active duty orders) are
executed as scheduled by the deadlines established in Paragraph
8 below. Obligations resulting from un-liquidated or un-expended
FICA tax, and unexecuted or cancelled orders, including travel
orders, must be de-obligated in the Financial Management Procurement
Services (FMPS), at least monthly to prevent accumulation of
residual obligations and undelivered orders (UDOs), and allow
for reallocation of training funds.
g. It is a violation of the Antideficiency Act (ADA), outlined in
REF (C), for Area/DOL/District funds managers to obligate or exceed
funds over the amount allotted to them. As such, any obligations to
exceed the amount allotted to the Area/DOL/District funds managers
requires prior, written approval from COMDT (CG-R82).
h. FY22 Travel Guidance: COMDT (CG-R82) must continue to monitor
reserve training travel ceiling and policy-limiting discretionary
travel as established in DHS and Coast Guard travel guidance.
Travel is authorized for readiness training, formal schools, and
travel associated with scheduled qualification and certification
