1. FILING PROCESS SIMPLIFIED FOR THE SPOUSE RELICENSING / CERTIFICATION FEES REIMBURSMENT PROGAM.  From Army G-1 Compensation and Entitlements: Effective immediately, unit commanders can approve the payment voucher request and their respective unit S-1/personnel designated official will validate marital status and certify the voucher. This program will be part of the in/out processing finance briefing. Attached at the following link is a Q&A sheet on this issue.  See your S-1/personnel office for questions.  An updated ALARACT is forthcoming which will reflect the changes.

2. BY-NAME-REQUESTS (BNR), ARMY TALENT ALIGNMENT PROCESS EXORD 145-19, 3 OCT 19. From HRC OPMD: In accordance with HQDA EXORD 149-19, Army Talent Alignment Process (ATAP), all Active Component Officer Assignments from 2LT to LTC will be executed through the ATAP in order to align officer talent with the Secretary of the Army’s guidance. In order to meet this guidance, the Officer Personnel Management Directorate (OPMD) will no longer process by-name-requests. All units are directed to preference available officers for summer 20-02 validated requirements within the Assignment Interactive Module 2 (AIM2).

3. DATE/TIME CHANGE: ARIMS FAMILIARIZATION TRAINING. From HRC Awards and Decorations Branch: The date for the previously announced ARIMS familiarization training has been changed from 11 Oct 19 to 9 Oct 19, 0900 EDT. The training is being provided to assist HR professionals in meeting their Army records management obligations.  Records management is required by law.  AR 25-400-2 provides general Army policy on meeting this legal requirement.  Each functional proponent maintains its own set of record-keeping requirements.  These requirements are defined in the ARIMS online interface.  Few HR professionals have the time to sit down and figure out the interface.  This session should provide the user with enough familiarity to navigate the interface and ask the right questions when in doubt.
