Civilian Authorization Documentation,

The manpower authorization documents in the U.S. Army Reserves do not necessarily agree with actual civilian personnel assignment. The program year manpower authorization documents are published eighteen months prior to effective date. The Department of the Army allows only one change to the initial program year manpower document twelve months prior to effective date. This does not provide Commanders any flexibility to react to changes in command priorities that may necessitate a manpower change. Any manpower changes that are necessary during the budget years can not be incorporated into the manpower document until the next program year documents are developed. As a result, some Major U.S. Army Reserve Commands in the U.S. Army Reserves do not initiate changes to their manpower documents to reflect their internal realignments of civilian authorizations. They exercise their authority, based on Manage Civilians to Budget MCB, and hire civilians not authorized on their manpower document. In addition to the time constraints in updating authorization documents, the program budget guidance system must be updated before a change can be made to the manpower documents system. The execution of civilian pay and civilian employment levels are reported at the aggregate level. Therefore, civilian authorizations should be documented on MUSARCs TDAs at the aggregate level as well.
