Here is some additional information on IPPS-A Go-Live and tasks associates with Go-Live events.

DA Selection Boards:

Please be advised that due to the Army’s transition to IPPS-A several legacy HR systems can no longer be updated. As a precaution the Army archived Record Briefs of all Soldiers who would meet a centralized selection board prior to April 2023. Record Briefs are not source documents, but we know they are used as a summary of information for selection boards. Soldiers that will be considered by a centralized board should view and certify their board files as laid out by the related MILPER. If significant discrepancies exist between one’s file and their Record Brief, they can submit a letter to the board highlighting those concerns. Soldiers should continue to submit documents to iPERMS, which was unaffected by the transition to IPPS-A. Board Members sitting on centralized selection boards are informed to not rely on the Record Brief for up-to-date critical information and, if needed, should review the Soldier’s iPERMs. By April 2023 centralized selection boards will be fed by IPPS-A data so please ensure that Service Member data is accurately captured in IPPS-A.

My POC for Selection Boards is LTC Michael Miller, Chief, DA Secretariat, at 502-613-8808, michael.j.miller654.mil@army.mil.

Officer Promotions

The HRC Officer Promotions team will begin working backdated orders and future January Promotions at Go-Live! Any updates to Suspension of Favorable Personnel Actions (SFPAs) must be completed in IPPS-A no later than 29 December 2022, 1159 EST. The IPPS-A priority of work checklist requires this task is completed as a “day 1 task” at Go-Live. Succuss is important in preventing any erroneous promotions. The Officer Promotions, Special Actions Team is working in accordance with the same timeline in the effort to add or remove all HQDA Flags.

The monthly MILPER for Officer AC and AGR promotions are anticipated for release NLT 23 December to the HRC website: https://www.hrc.army.mil/milper.

IPPS-A changes the way an officer receives their promotion order. An order is not generated in IPPS-A until the effective date of promotion if all eligibility is met. Therefore, the Officer Promotions list will continue to be posted on the milSuite site to provide units visibility of projected promotions: https://www.milsuite.mil/book/community/spaces/apf/s1net/promotionsofficers/officerpromotionorders. Units can use the projected list to plan for the execution of ceremonies assuming all other eligibility is met.

My POC for Officers Promotions is MAJ Crystal Moore, Promotion Branch, at 502-613-8654, crystal.d.moore14.mil@army.mil. The Officers Promotions mailbox is:  usarmy.knox.hrc.mbx.tagd-ac-officer-promotions@army.mil

Enlisted Promotions

The HRC Enlisted Promotions team will begin working backdated orders and future January Promotions at Go-Live! Any updates to Suspension of Favorable Personnel Actions (SFPAs) must be completed in IPPS-A no later than 29 December 2022, 1159 EST. The IPPS-A priority of work checklist requires this task is completed as a “day 1 task” at Go-Live. Succuss is important in preventing any erroneous promotions.

Therefore, Enlisted Promotions will continue to be posted on the HRC Enlisted Promotions site to provide units visibility of projected promotions: Enlisted Promotions. Units can use the projected list to plan for the execution of ceremonies assuming all other eligibility requirements are met.

HR Professionals at the unit level need to ensure that all promotion transactions (waivers/reductions) that should have occurred during the brownout are completed in IPPS-A. Decentralized promotions that were effective in November 2022 have to be reviewed and corrected (adjust DORs), as needed. See attached IPPS-A Decentralized enlisted promotion catch up task cheat sheet HERE.

AMHRR/iPERMS:

Servicemembers must log into iPERMS with a DoD certificate/CAC using the EAMS-A login option to successfully initiate, view and or complete Record Reviews. The DS LOGON option cannot be utilized to initiate or complete Record Review tasks.

Effective 16 December 2022, SRB upload is no longer required to initiate a Personnel Record Review (PRR) in iPERMS.

All record briefs are being transferred from eMILPO to iPERMS in preparation for IPPS-A R3 and eMILPO going offline 27 December.

Per MILPER Message 22-318, Soldiers will execute a new, signed and verified DD Form 93 when there is a change in any item except unit (block 3b.), which includes, but is not limited to, marriage, divorce, or the addition of children or if changes are required (other than block 3.b. Unit /Duty Station). If there are no changes, it is not required to submit a new DD 93. During the annual PRR, the Soldier will select “DD 93 Accurate” from the dropdown and digitally sign the record review using the Common Access Card once the review is complete.

Send PRR inquires to usarmy.knox.hrc.mbx.iperms-accounts@army.mil.

For iPERMS technical issues please email: usarmy.knox.hrc.mesg.iperms-technical-help-desk@army.mil or call (502) 608-0217. For iPERMS functional issues related to missing documents, duplicate documents, record reviews, iPERMS access request, etc. please email:  usarmy.know.hrc.mbx.it-help-desk@army.mil.
