New orders request system now in use for all IRs

We constantly strive to make it easier for IRs to serve, so we created a myPers-based orders request system.  The system is currently being used by IRs assigned to Detachments 2 and 3 and now it’s time to launch RIO-wide. 

Beginning 28 June all orders requests (AT, TDY, IDT Travel, RPA, MPA, etc.) must be submitted via this new myPers system.  If you had orders requested or pending in AROWS-R prior to 28 June, you don’t need to take any action.  They will continue to be worked.
The new system is a vast improvement from using AROWS-R.  For instance, if you require a sanctuary waiver, AT Special Request Form, or Car Rental Worksheet, they are created automatically as you input your request.  In addition, myPers is accessible without a CAC and you can even access it on your smartphone!

You will still use AROWS-R to track, print, and certify (short tour only) orders, but it makes it much easier for you to request orders using the new myPers system.
