ETQC Training Advisory 008-22, Processing FY23 C School, A School and Accession Course TDY Orders

The successful implementation of practices discussed in reference (a), eliminated the challenges members were experiencing with Direct Access (DA) generated training administration system (TAS) orders. Due to this success, FORCECOM will continue the practice of permitting local units to manage the administration of FY23 "C" school TDY orders to include initiation of the authorization, funds certification, and AO approval. Maintaining uniformity in FORCECOM business processes, at the start of FY23, these instructions will also apply to both Accession (e.g. DCO, OCS, DEPOT) and “A” school TDY orders. These instructions do not apply to PCS orders to the subject schools.

ETQC Training Advisory 007-22 Processing "C" School Travel Orders and Vouchers for the Remainder of FY-2022

FORCECOM is continuing to experience multiple issues with Direct Access (DA) generated training administration system (TAS) orders. These issues have forced a change to the “C” school business processes for the remainder of FY22 to ensure students are able to travel without or with minimal manual intervention from SATO and the FC travel adjustment team. Current “C” school processes are unsustainable while ensuring timely obligation and vouchering. FORCECOM is sending the administration of orders to the local unit for initiation of the authorization, funds certification, and AO approval.
