Out-Processing (OP) Overview

This overview provides guidance and useful information to prepare you with out-processing Ft. Bragg.

There are six (6) primary steps to out-process the Fort Bragg Installation.Soldiers can’t go on to the next step until they have accomplished the previous step.

STEP 1: You must have orders in your possession (Chapters and Soldiers on assignment instructions for Drill Sergeant and Recruiting duty are the exceptions).  READ YOUR ORDERS: They contain lots of good information on what you will need and places you can clear without clearing papers.

STEP 2:  Effective 1 August, all appointment will be established via https://bookfbo.timetap.com.  To schedule, upon receipt of your orders visit https://bookfbo.timetap.com.  Your requested date cannot be more than 10 “calendar days” before your departure date, and the out-processing staff must confirm the appointment before you can attend the out-processing briefing.  NOTE:  If, for any reason you need to reschedule your appointment send your request, along with supporting documentation (i.e., DA Form 31, amendment order) to usarmy.bragg.imcom-atlantic.mbx.bragg-smd@mail.mil.
