Reassignments: The goal of the personnel assignment system is to place the right Soldier in the right job at the right time. AR 614–100 and AR 614–200 provide overviews of the personnel assignment system. Department of the Army (DA) directed enlisted reassignments are in accordance with guidance contained in AR 614–200 and AR 614–30. DA directed officer reassignments are in accordance with guidance contained in AR 614–100. The personnel reassignment process ensures that the eligibility of Soldiers who receive AI is verified, that travel assistance is provided, that Soldiers are prepared for movement, and that their departure is verified. Reassignment processing begins upon receipt of AI, and ends with the issuance of PCS orders in accordance with AR 600–8–105.
The Reassignment Work Center (RWC) processes the following orders:
- PCS orders (including amendment and revocations)
- North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Travel orders
- IPCOT (In Place Consecutive Overseas Tour) orders
- SRU (Soldier Recovery Unit) orders
- Confinement orders
- Excess Leave orders
- TCS (deployment) orders
- Casualty orders
