As of 1 Oct 2023, RTS (myFSS) is longer be used for IMA/PIRR travel reimbursement.  In addition, HOW DTS is used changed as well.  Click the "DTS Transition" link at the top of the website for more information. 

If your orders say to file for travel reimbursement through DTS, you'll use the DTS system with your RESERVE profile (your SSN with an R at the end).  When your orders are approved in AROWS-R, use the information in the comments to create your DTS authorization and make travel arrangements, if needed.  Sign and forward the authorization for approval, which happens at your detachment.

When you complete your orders, you'll go back into DTS and use the approved authorization to create and route the travel voucher.  See the user guide below for detailed help.  If you run into issues, contact your detachment and ask to speak to the DTS ODTA (Organizational Defense Travel Administrator.

Due to increased seasonal voucher volume, members can expect processing timelines of up to 30 business days to receive payment; this is contingent upon a complete and accurate voucher submission to TRO for processing.

FYSA:  Once vouchers complete technician review, they route through an auditor prior to being processed for payment.  Once audit is complete, anticipate approx. 14 business days for Advice of Payment (AOP) generation in myPay and payment to your account/GTC.

Actions for the Member:

1) File your Travel Voucher within 5 business days of completion of travel per the JTR. 

2) Monitor DTS or myFSS for corrections to your voucher as appropriate, and respond as soon as possible. 

3) Ensure your email is correct in your DTS and myFSS profiles to prevent delays in receiving notifications.

4) Communicate with your Detachment as soon as possible if your voucher is not meeting the processing times outlined above.

5) If reimbursement delays will likely cause your GTC balance to become past due, or if you anticipate reaching your credit limit due to back-to-back travel, discuss placing your GTC in Mission Critical Status with your active component GTC monitor as soon as possible.
