1. Per Ref A, the new travel system, E-Gov Travel System (ETS), 
implementation will begin on 01 October 21 (Q1 of FY22). With such a
significant transition, we are in the process of updating all
approval level POCs in order to mitigate risks associated with this
transition period. Units need to ensure that all Authorizing
Officials (AO) information is validated in T-PAX NLT Friday, 30JUL21.
PPC will begin transferring this data to ETS 02AUG21. During the
validation process, ensure only current AOs remain in T-PAX. If a
member is no longer an AO or the member has transferred to another
unit or department within an existing unit, then an update must occur
or the member should be removed.
2. If information is not current in T-PAX prior to 30JUL21, units may
be at risk for existing AOs to be uploaded into the wrong approval
pool within ETS upon go-live of 01OCT21. This issue will require a 
manual trouble ticket, which may result in delay of service of ETS
usage. Updated guidance on this will be provided as the transition
period nears.
3. The Travel Management Office (TMO) will continue to provide key
updates and information on ETS on our website at
4. Should units have direct questions regarding AO Validation,
members should email the Travel Management Office at
5. For other related ETS or TMO questions, please direct them to
CDR William Suter, Travel Management Office Implementation (CG-133)
(202) 475-5377, email: William.W.Suter@uscg.mil.
