MEMORANDUM FOR SEE DISTRIBUTION
SUBJECT: Worldwide Individual Augmentation System (WIAS)



Reference: DA Pamphlet 500-5-1, dated, December 28, 2001, subject: Individual Augmentation Management

The Worldwide Individual Augmentation System (WIAS) is the primary method for requesting military and civilian augmentation for contingency operations, recurring operations and exercises. WIAS is a web-based information system providing real-time information on current Army-wide Individual Augmentee (IA) requirements as well as the deployment status of personnel assigned to those requirements. The process consists of the following steps:
  1. Combatant command tasks component to fill a validated requirement.

  2. The Army component commander first attempts to source the requirement using internal assets.

  3. When the Army component command determines that the requirement cannot be filled using internal assets, the requirement is passed back to HQDA.

  4. HQDA analyzes the requirement and tasks the appropriate Major Army Command (MACOM) for fill.

  5. MACOM fills the requirement or reclamas the tasking to HQDA.

  6. In the event of a reclama, HQDA will task another MACOM or request Joint Staff assistance to fill the requirement. Submission of a reclama for consideration does not constitute relief from the requirement. Once levied, the MACOM will continue to fill the position until officially relieved by HQDA.

  7. Civilian employees will be returned to their permanent jobs of record upon completion of their contingency assignments, unless the tasked MACOM and the employee mutually agree to other placement following the assignment.
Although Army has authority to mandate augmentations in support of contingencies, we also encourage civilian employees to volunteer for Detail, Temporary Reassignment, or Temporary Promotion into positions that support our contingency operations around the globe. Commanders at all levels should support and encourage their civilian employees to volunteer for these assignments. These positions will typically be of six months to one year in length; expenses are funded by the gaining command. At the conclusion of the assignment, employees are returned to their permanent jobs of record. Gaining and losing commands, with the employee's consent, can agree to a longer assignment or other placement of the employee following the assignment.

Point of Contact for WIAS issues is Mr. James Feagins, telephone (703) 693-2127, email James.Feagins@hqda.army.mil.
Point of Contact for civilian placement issues is Mr. Steve Lewis, telephone (703) 325-9419, email Steve.Lewis@(email address expired).
