Updated - How to Submit PCS Advance Request and File PCS Travel Claims


June 26, 2023 update:

  • Until mLINQS is fully live and integrated with both FSMS and DA, we’re using a combination of mLINQS and ETS to calculate, approve, and payout PCS advances and Claims.  This Incremental Roll out of mLINQS provides the fleet with a chance to work and learn in the system prior to full integration of FSMS and DA. Once mLINQS is fully integrated and live it will be an all-encompassing system that will calculate and payout all En Route Entitlements of a PCS.  Please see the FY23 Overview of mLINQS TPAX Incremental Process and FY23 Creating a PCS Relocation and Authorization to see a step-by-step user guide of the process.
  • In the April 14, 2022 update:
    • We removed "TLE" from the list of POETs that transfer from ETS to DA. Only Member Travel, Dependent Travel, and DLA POETs are transferring to ETS. 
    • The YN or other administrative support professional, working the orders in ETS, must have their ETS profile adjusted to reflect "ETS Travel for Other Roles" to submit advances on the behalf of members. The AO or supervisor must submit a trouble ticket to PPC to request the permission change.
  • In the April 13, 2022 update we removed the note to enter DLA, TLE, and other travel amounts in the member travel line in the DA orders. These lines now have their own POETs and are transferring, successfully, from DA to ETS. (Correction: TLE doesn't transfer to ETS).
  • In the April 6, 2022 update we removed the requirement from the FY 21 PCS Voucher Process to update the obligation in DA when the amount due is $3,000 or more. This step isn't necessary.
  • Use this line of accounting (LOA) - 2/P/201/199/21/0/RA/78040/2104 - in TPAX for PCS claims. 
  • Ensure the member’s ETS account is ENABLED (accounts are disabled after 90 days of inactivity) and the major/minor customer reflects the member’s current unit. If the ETS account is not enabled prior to the order being pushed from DA to ETS, the Open Authorization (OA) will not be created in ETS.
