ITAR – Direct Deployed Personnel Accountability

Conditions: You are a Brigade S-1 in a deployed environment. As a Brigade S-1, you are required to monitor subordinate units’ Personnel Accountability capabilities, activities, and procedures which serve as the key factor for strength reporting for your brigade. Deployed Theater Accountability System (DTAS) connectivity is available for all subordinate units. You have access to the references listed in the enclosed table and human resources enabling systems. Some iterations of this task should be performed in MOPP 4.

Standards: Correlate the Brigade hierarchy in DTAS so there is a 100% match with the current task organization. Verify DTAS connectivity for 100% of all subordinate units and confirm units are sending updates in accordance with theater policy. Develop a standing operating procedures (SOP) that establishes effective personnel accountability procedures and practices for subordinate units. Ensure 100% accountability of all Soldiers, Joint and Multinational personnel, DoD civilians, contractors, and others in accordance with theater policy. Direct a Personnel Asset Inventory (PAI) to establish, reestablish, or verify 100% accountability as required or when DTAS and unit personnel status reports (PERSTAT) are out of balance IAW theater policy.
