1. In accordance with REFs (A) through (D), this message announces
key dates, responsibilities, and policies for commands and SELRES
members when scheduling all reserve drill types in FY23, including
Inactive Duty Training (IDT), Readiness Management Periods (RMP),
Additional Training Periods (ATP), and Additional Flying and
Flight Training Periods (AFTP). Pay for duty performed not in
compliance with this message or REFs (A) through (D) may
be subject to recoupment.
2. SELRES members may schedule and complete drills during
all months of FY23 (01 October 2022 to 30 September 2023), with
particular attention to critical dates and scheduling deadlines
in paragraph 8. Reserve training for position-based competencies
is the priority for each member. The first three quarters of the
FY (October through June) represent the broadest scheduling
flexibility. Fiscal Year closeout requirements reduce flexibility
in the fourth quarter (July through September). Members and
commands must make every effort to finalize drill schedules in
advance to minimize changes and waiver requests during the
fourth quarter.
3. IDT:
a. SELRES members are authorized up to 48 paid IDT drills.
SELRES members who perform more paid IDT than authorized will
be in an overpaid status, and as such, drills will be corrected
to without pay (points only) and pay recouped.
b. SELRES members must follow local unit/District (dxr)/PAC-13
guidance regarding IDT berthing.
c. With command approval, SELRES members may batch drills
and perform drills in excess of the quarterly allocation of 12
paid IDT drills. In addition to command approval, SELRES members
who request IDT berthing must have approval from their servicing
District (dxr)/PAC-13 prior to scheduling and batching IDT drills.
d. Members serving on active duty for a full calendar month
are not eligible to perform or make up drills for that month,
IAW Chapter 2.A.2.a(4) of REF (B). Example: BMC Kindler
performs active duty from 15 November 2022 to 15 January 2023.
BMC Kindler cannot make up the four (4) IDT drills missed in
December. The authorized paid IDT drill cap for BMC Kindler
is adjusted to 44 drills.
e. SELRES members leaving the Service voluntarily
(retirement or discharge) or involuntarily (non-selected for
promotion, non-continued, etc.) may only complete the number
of drills corresponding to their separation date. Example: CDR
Smith is not selected for retention and is required to leave
active status NLT 30 June. CDR Smith may complete a maximum of
36 paid IDT drills for the period 01 October 2022 to 30 June
2023 and is subject to the limitations of paragraph 3.d.
4. ATPs:
a. Only SELRES members assigned to Port Security Units (PSU),
Maritime Expeditionary Security Groups (MESG), and Maritime
Expeditionary Security Squadrons (MSRON) are authorized to perform
ATPs with pay in FY23 without a waiver from COMDT (CG-R82).
No more than 12 ATPs may be initially allocated to a SELRES
member to meet unit training requirements.
(1) Each PSU is authorized a maximum of 1,680 ATPs.
After PSU training plans are adjudicated by local commands,
unused ATPs may be reallocated to SELRES members within the
same command who have used their 12 ATPs and need additional
training periods to complete remaining training requirements.
The number of ATPs performed in a fiscal year by any member
must not exceed 36 IAW REF (B).
(2) Each MESG and MSRON is authorized up to 100 ATPs.
After MESG and MSRON training plans are adjudicated by local
commands, unused ATPs may be reallocated to SELRES members
within the same command who have used 12 ATPs and need additional
training periods to complete remaining training requirements.
MESGs and MSRONs must have PAC-13 approval prior to reallocating
ATPs. The number of ATPs performed in a fiscal year by any member
must not exceed 36 IAW REF (B).
b. Boat Force and Combatant Command (COCOM) ATP allocations
will be provided SEPCOR.
c. SELRES members not assigned to a PSU, MESG, or MSRON are
not authorized to perform ATPs without written authorization
from COMDT (CG-R82).
5. AFTPs: Only SELRES officers assigned to aviation positions
in a flight status are authorized to perform AFTPs in FY23 without
a waiver from COMDT (CG-R82). AFTPs are authorized IAW with REF (B)
for primary aircrew members conducting aircrew training, to attain
and maintain aircrew flying proficiency, and to sustain required
readiness. AFTPs must be scheduled in Direct Access as ATPs.
COMDT (CG-711), in conjunction with COMDT (CG-R82), must
work with field units to ensure AFTP usage does not exceed the
total AFTP allocation of 1,152. The AFTP cap for each
SELRES officer in a flight status is 48.
6. RMPs:
a. Each SELRES member is authorized two paid RMPs in FY23,
unless otherwise noted below. The two paid RMPs may be used for
any purpose listed within Chapter 2.A.2.c.(1)(a)-(d) of REF (B).
RMPs for pay will not be less than four hours in duration and RMPs
without pay must be a minimum of two hours in duration. Not more
than one RMP may be performed by an individual in one calendar day.
RMPs completed that are not in compliance with this message and
applicable policy are subject to cancellation and pay recouped
IAW Chapter 2.A.2.c.(5)(c) of REF (B).
(1) SELRES members who take the October 2022 Reserve
Service-wide Exam (RSWE) are authorized one additional RMP
for pay unless the SELRES member is already scheduled to
perform duty on the same day.
(2) RMPs for CDAR-directed screenings, OMSEP medical
appointments, weight compliance medical appointments, and
command-directed medical screenings, as outlined in Chapter
2.A.2.c.(1)(e)-(g) of REF (B), may be approved by the
member's command subject to the requirements of
paragraph 10.
b. Only PSC-RPM can authorize RMPs for medical
appointments in connection with a Notice of Eligibility
7. Management Responsibilities:
a. Scheduling drills.
(1) Drills should remain in a pending status
(i.e. scheduled but not approved by a supervisor) to enable
members to reschedule drills without having to request a waiver.
All drills must be scheduled and approved in Direct Access prior
to a member reporting for duty. Upon member request, commands will
issue written orders as soon as possible before the scheduled duty
period(s) to allow the member time to provide notification to a
civilian employer. All berthing requirements as set by the member's
servicing District (dxr)/PAC-13 must also be met prior to the
member reporting for duty.
(2) SELRES members not assigned to PSUs, MESGs, MSRONs, or
aviation positions in a flight status shall not schedule ATPs or
AFTPs without prior written authorization from COMDT (CG-R82).
Unauthorized paid ATP or AFTPs must be cancelled or drill type
changed to IDT. When correcting drills, commands must use the
‘Correcting Paid IDT Drills’ Direct Access User Guide and
coordinate corrections with their servicing SPO.
b. Approving and processing drills.
(1) SELRES members must notify their supervisor upon
IDT completion.
(2) Supervisors must ensure drills are validated and
placed in a "completed" status in Direct Access within
two working days of drill completion.
(3) SPOs must process payment within three working
days of receiving notification that IDT drills have been
placed in a "completed" status in Direct Access.
(4) Drills that remain in a "scheduled"
status more than ten days past the duty date are
subject to cancellation.
c. Monitoring and validating drills.
(1) Accurate and timely processing of drills
for payment, cancellation, or rescheduling is a command
responsibility. To strengthen internal controls and oversight
of Reserve Training funds, Area/District (dxr)/PAC-13/DOL-1
and field level Reserve Force Readiness System (RFRS) staffs
shall regularly (at least monthly) review scheduled drills
to ensure drill periods are being requested and executed IAW
this ALCOAST and REFs (A) through (D). Additionally, COMDT (CG-R82)
will post a quarterly drill validation report containing all past
due drills remaining in a scheduled status for the previous
quarter(s). Area/District (dxr)/PAC-13/DOL-1 and RFRS staffs shall
take action on the past due drills to ensure payment or
cancellation.Past due drills remaining in a scheduled status after
the completion of the quarterly validation will be cancelled by
COMDT (CG-R82). The quarterly drill validation report is available
to Area/District (dxr)/PAC-13/DOL-1 and field level RFRS staffs on
the Reserve Quarterly Validation Microsoft Teams site.
(2) District (dxr)/PAC-13 funds managers shall continuously
monitor their IDT berthing accounts, especially when authorizing
batching of IDT, and provide funding concerns to the appropriate
POCs identified in paragraph 11. Inactive duty berthing
shall be scheduled IAW REF (B), including the double occupancy
requirement in paragraph 2.7.c.
