About the Personnel and Pay Procedures Manual, PPCINST M1000.2 (series)

Live Update and Conversion to Tactics, Techniques, and procedures (TTP) Publication Format in Progress

Ref:: (a) E-Mail ALSPO C/16; Personnel & Pay Procedures Manual

Per E-Mail ALSPO C/16, we have updated three Chapters in the 3PM . The chapters are: Introduction (Chap 01), Personnel and Pay Systems Overview (Chap 02), Career Management (Chap 05), Electronic Based Distributed Learning Courses (Chap 12A), and Inactive Duty Orders (Chap 12B)

As we update the manual, we are converting it to TTP. TTP format requires a mandated Chapter 1, so all the chapters numbers will be changing.

Major changes:

  • Replaced responsibility bullets for Admin Offices and SPO with the functional statements created by the SPO Realignment Working Group.
  • Contacting PPC - clarified that members are to coordinate resolution of pay and personnel issues through their P&A (Admin) Office who in turn will coordinate through their servicing SPO's. SPO's will coordinate/submit tickets to PPC.
  • Clarified that we will remove CGHRSUP role and PAO privileges if members do not complete required annual mandated training for PAO's.
  • Changed verbiage from "Certified To Be A True Copy" to "Certified Copy" (legal recommendation). Also clarified who can certify copies.
  • Shifted data entry responsibilities for education and test results, medals and awards, competencies and insignias to P&A (Admin) Offices.
  • IDT Documentation per ALCOAST 159/16.
  • Checklist for Separations (Sec 3.B) updated with new e-mail address and phone numbers for the In Service Transfer Team.

We are working as quickly as possible to get the other chapters done.
