MEMORANDUM FOR SEE DISTRIBUTION
SUBJECT: Policy Memorandum for On-The-Spot (OTS) Cash Awards



Reference Army Regulation 672-20, Incentive Awards, dated June 1, 1993.

The above reference, currently under review, authorizes OTS cash awards in amounts ranging from $25 to $250. Once we have completed the review of the regulation, the criteria in AR 672-20, paragraph 4-4, will change to increase OTS cash awards to amounts ranging from $50 to $500. Until the new range is formally incorporated into the regulation, the range of $50 to $500 applies throughout Army and is effective immediately.

Point of contact for this action is Mrs. Alma Collier, (703) 325-1341, DSN 221-1341, or email at Alma.Collier@(email address expired).
