System name:

Secondary locations: Teksouth Corporation, 1420 Northbrook Drive, #220, Gardendale, AL 35071-3869.

U.S. Marine Corps, Tech Services Org, 1500 E. Bannister Road, Kansas City, MO 64197-0001.

Categories of individuals covered by the system:

Air Force Reserve personnel and AFRC civilians.

Categories of records in the system:

Individual's name, Social Security Number (SSN), military grade, and personnel, pay, and accounting records.

Authority for maintenance of the system:

10 U.S.C. 8013, Secretary of the Air Force; DoD 5000.2-R, Mandatory Procedures for Major Defense Acquisition Programs (MDAPS) and Major Automated Information System (MAIS) Acquisition Programs; Air Force Policy Directive 65-6, Financial Management; Air Force Reserve Command Instruction 65-601, Budget Programming and Financial Management and E.O. 9397 (SSN).

Purpose(s):

To establish a mission critical information system that automates tasks and functions of order writing. Any duty related travel requires the individual to travel “on orders,” which is a detailed account of where the person is traveling to and from, as well as the financial designation of what type funds are used to pay for this type duty travel. Typically a request is initiated for a field unit to fulfill a military duty and/or travel in support of the Air National Guard or Air Force mission requirement and processed through the Air Force Reserve Command. The approval of the orders includes the allocation of funds necessary to support the cost of the request. Cost items that are typical for orders are basic military pay, per diem, subsistence, housing and travel expense. Tracking the use of the funds and the ability for reconciliation is an essential element.

Routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories of users and the purposes of such uses:

In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 552a(b) of the Privacy Act of 1974, these records or information contained therein may specifically be disclosed outside the Department of Defense as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(3).

The “Blanket Routine Uses” published at the beginning of the Air Force's compilation of the systems of records notices apply to this system manager.

Storage:

Electronic storage media.

Retrievability:

Individual's name, Social Security Number (SSN), and/or order tracking number.

Safeguards:
