16. PERSONNEL ACCOUNTING. UP-TO-DATE UIC (OR DUIC) AND UNIT INFORMATION IS VITAL TO SIDPERS OPERATIONS.

AN EXCEPTION PROCESS ALSO EXISTS TO ENSURE SIDPERS IS UPDATED AS RAPIDLY AS IS NECESSARY.

  1. AC SIDPERS.

    1. INDIVIDUAL TCS DEPLOYMENT FROM SIDPERS-2 INSTALLATIONS. HOME STATION MUST DEPART THE SOLDIER TO THE IDS/CRC USING MDC CODE "PM". THE CRC/IDS WILL ARRIVE THE SOLDIER, CONDUCT PROCESSING, AND DEPART SOLDIER TO THE THEATER. PRIOR TO DEPARTING THE SOLDIER THE CRC/IDS MUST SUBMITT THE DPLI TRANSACTION. THE DPLI TRANSACTION WILL BE SUBMITTED AS FOLLOWS:

      1. DPLI CODE "L" FOR SOLDIERS DEPLOYING TO KUWAIT
      2. DPLI CODE "A" FOR SOLDIERS DEPLOYING TO THE REMAINDER OF SOUTHWEST ASIA


    2. UNIT DEPLOYMENT FROM SIDPERS-2 INSTALLATIONS. HOME STATION WILL USE UDPL CODE "L" FOR KUWAIT AND "A" FOR THE REMAINDER OF SOUTHWEST ASIA. DO NOT SUBMIT DEPARTURE TRANSACTIONS ON UNIT DEPLOYMENTS. REASSIGN NON-DEPLOYABLES TO A NON-DEPLOYING DUIC PRIOR TO SUBMITING A UDPL TRANSACTION.

UPON ARRIVAL AT THE MOB STATION/CRC/IDS, THEY WILL BE ACCESSED INTO THE OPERATING STRENGTH OF THE ARMY VIA SIDPERS-AC.

    1. SIDPERS-2 (2.75). INSTALLATIONS USING SIDPERS-2 (2.72) ALL RC SOLDIERS ORDERED TO ACTIVE DUTY IN SUPPORT OF AN OPERATION WILL BE ACCESSED INTO THE OPERATING STRENGTH OF THE ARMY VIA SIDPERS. THIS IS ESSENTIAL TO MAINTAIN PERSONNEL ACCOUNTABILITY OF THESE SOLDIERS. SEE AR 600-8-6.

    2. SIDPERS-3. INSTALLATIONS WHICH HAVE CONVERTED TO SIDPERS-3 WILL USE THE SIDPERS-3 PERSONNEL ACCOUNTING ARRIVAL PROCESS FOR INDIVIDUAL FILLERS/AUGMENTEES OR UNIT MOBILIZATION PROCESS TO NOTIFY PERSCOM THAT PRE-ACCESSED RC SOLDIERS HAVE REPORTED FOR ACTIVE DUTY. FOR THIS PROCESS TO WORK, IT IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL THAT THE NATIONAL GUARD AND ARMY RESERVE TRANSMIT AN ICDT ON EACH RC SOLDIER PRIOR TO THE SOLDIER'S REPORTING DATE. IN SIDPERS-3, MOBILIZATION ACCESSION IS AN INTEGRATED PROCESS BETWEEN SIDPERS-3 AND THE TOTAL ARMY PERSONNEL DATA BASE (TAPDB) AT PERSCOM. FOR AN ACCESSION TO OCCUR, TAPDB MUST HAVE ALREADY PLACED THE MOBILIZING RC SOLDIER'S RECORD IN A PENDING GAIN STATUS ON AC TAPDB AS A RESULT OF MOBILIZATION ACTIONS TAKEN BY STATE ARNG OR ARPERSCOM. ALSO TAPDB MUST HAVE ALREADY FORWARDED A TRANSFER DATA RECORD (TDR) TO THE SIDPERS-3 SITE WHERE THE SOLDIER HAS BEEN DIRECTED TO REPORT. THE PENDING GAIN STATUS AND TDR ARE CREATED BY THE TAPDB INTERCOMPONENT DATA TRANSFER (ICDT) PROCESS. IF THE TDR IS NOT PRESENT, THE CRC/IDS WILL USE THE PERSONNEL ACCOUNTING TEMPORARY ARRIVAL PROCESS TO ESTABLISH ACCOUNTABILITY.

      1. SIDPERS-3 RC INDIVIDUAL. WHEN THE RC SOLDIER REPORTS AS AN INDIVIDUAL, THE SIDPERS-3 ARRIVAL PROCESS WILL NOTIFY TAPDB THAT THE SOLDIER HAS REPORTED AND CHANGE THE RECORD STATUS TO ACTIVE ON TAPDB, I.E., COMPLETE THE ACCESSION PROCESS. THE ARRIVAL PROCESS WILL ALSO ACTIVATE THE RC SOLDIER'S TDR AS AN ACTIVE DUTY RECORD ON THE LOCAL SIDPERS-3 DATABASE.

      2. SIDPERS-3 RC UNIT. THE SIDPERS-3 UNIT MOBILIZATION PROCESS ACCOMPLISHES THE SAME ACTIONS AS ABOVE, FOR RC SOLDIERS WHO REPORT AS MEMBERS OF A UNIT. IN THIS CASE, IT IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL THAT THE UNIT UIC (OR DUIC) BE REGISTERED IN SORTS AND ADDED TO THE SIDPERS-3 ARMY LOCATOR FILE AT PERSCOM. THE UIC OR DUIC MUST BE ON THE INSTALLATION'S SIDPERS-3 UNIT TABLE BEFORE TDRS ARE SENT BY TAPDB, BEFORE THE UNIT REPORTS, AND BEFORE ARRIVALS ARE ATTEMPTED. UICS AND OTHER UNIT INFORMATION ARE PROVIDED ONLY VIA A TOP-DOWN FEED FROM PERSCOM, AND CANNOT BE INITIATED LOCALLY AS IN SIDPERS-2(2.75). PROCEDURES TO PUT UICS FROM THE TOP DOWN FEED INTO THE SIDPERS-3 UNIT TABLE ARE CONTAINED IN PROCEDURE 3-26, DA PAM 600-8-30 (DRAFT).


    3. SIDPERS-3 HELP DESK. INSTALLATIONS SHOULD CONTACT THE SIDPERS-3 DESK AT (703) 325-3850/3807 OR DSN 221-3850/3807 FOR ASSISTANCE WITH PROBLEMS RELATED TO MOBILIZATION. PRIOR COORDINATION IS RECOMMENDED TO REVIEW THE PROCESS AND PROCEDURES.

ROAMS ACCESS, TRAINING, OR TECHNICAL SUPPORT MAY BE OBTAINED BY CALLING DSN 221-3876/1919/3915. OR COMMERCIAL (703) 325-3876/1919/3915.

  2. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL A UNIT BE DRAWN DOWN BELOW MISSION CAPABLE UNLESS APPROVED BY DA.
