Deployment Tracking System Ongoing

Deployment Tracking System Ongoing

Washington D.C. -- March 8, 2001 (AFPN) -- The Air Force's Tempo Management and Tracking System is well under way in helping the service track its people's deployments.

The Air Force began tracking individual service-members' deployed days Oct. 1, to fall in line with new legislation aimed at reducing the stress of frequent and prolonged family separations or adverse impacts of extensive temporary duty assignments. The information is expected to be displayed monthly on future leave and earnings statements.

"This was not a totally new concept for the Air Force, since we've been monitoring deployments of all members for several years," said Wayne Nelson, from the Air Force's operational readiness division.

Under the new policy, service-members are eligible to receive high-deployment pay of $100 a day for each day they have been deployed in excess of 400 days within the previous 730 days. Payment for high-deployment days will occur once the deployment is completed. Once the deployment days are verified, commanders will issue a military pay order to the eligible person to submit through his or her base finance office.

"The high-deployment pay is an attempt to ensure the services make every effort to reduce the number of people who are subject to burdensome tempo," Nelson said. "However, this is not a pay raise. High-deployment pay must come from within existing budgets."

The management system requires personal involvement by general officers in the decision to deploy service-members for more than 181 days within a 365-day period. In most cases, the major command commander must approve a service-member's deployment for more than 220 days within a 365-day period, Nelson said. The 365-day period is a rolling calendar, independent of fiscal or calendar year considerations.

"What's changed is that we now are required to gain general officer approval for folks to exceed 181 or 220 days deployed out of the preceding 365 days," Nelson said.

Another change is that all temporary duty travel will not count toward the 181- 220- and 400-day thresholds.

"It remains the Air Force's desire for individuals to not exceed 120 days TDY per year," he said.

"However, for those members who will exceed 120 days, commanders will strive to manage the tempo of their people below the established thresholds.

"The Tempo Management and Tracking System is a tool to help distribute, over a larger number of Air Force members, the burden of meeting our commitments," Nelson said.
