Availability Report Processing (AVAILS)


An availability report (AVAIL) is the communication to the Assignment Control Authority (ACA) that a member requires assignment/reassignment.  It’s used as a key element to notify the ACA or anyone else with a need to know, why a member has become available for transfer and provides a means for the ones that process pay and personnel documents to properly track a member after AVAIL submission for receipt of BUPERS orders or other disposition.
Policy Guidance:  MILPERSMAN 1306-1700 series
