Information : Automated Travel
Rock Island Arsenal’s (RIA’s) personnel office is required to produce Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders on a routine basis and at times, produces many orders simultaneously. This is a long, manual process which requires research of voluminous Joint Travel Regulations.
In an atmosphere of downsizing, the personnel office turned to automation to better serve its customers and accomplish its mission. Using in-house expertise, it utilized off-the-shelf software and created a user-friendly program and database. This program produces in 30 minutes what normally took an average of three days. The entire PCS order is printed out with all cost estimates accurately produced. The Automated Travel System is a very simple but effective solution to the problem of personnel reductions and could be used by all Government installations.
