Bounties - JPA bites again

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by brewmeister, Mar 27, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just heard today, that due to yet another inadequacy with JPA bounties will not be paid till 1st May. If true, this system is beyond belief!
     
  2. That will preserve your liver for another month

    JPA ALL THE WAY.....The computer says no
     
  3. So long as it’s not delayed any further, Goku needs a new 50inch Plasma :wink:
     
  4. Well its not a delay as such, its been planned that way for a while it seems...
     
  5. The Gobmint needs to hold onto it for as long as poss in order to get the interest to fund Northern Rock. Why? Because all the big Unions have their pension funds invested there and Mr Broon could not let his Comrades down.
     
  6. Bugger.....no chance of paying my car insurance with it this year...oh well

    No win is there?

    If you want it paid in April then it has to be processed in the March Pay run. That would mean that you would have had to have completed all MATTs well prior to that in order for the admin staff to process them onto JPA to obtain the efficiency cert. You would then have people complaining that they did not have the full opportunity to earn their bounty in the 2007 - 2008 training year.

    If you allow the full training year to earn the bounty, then it cannot be processed until after the end of March, and it is therefore processed in April for payment in May.
     
  8. If it sticks to May that would be fine....if only :)
     
  9. Oh well. At least I'll still have something to spend on beer at the Army Navy! Got to look on the bright side.

    It's still a shite system.
     
  10. The_Duke, I'm beginning to suspect you are a government plant! As for pay runs etc why can't all those qualified by 20th March get it in April then?
     
  11. Because they don't just sit about waiting for each TA Gadgey to finish. It is about cost effectiveness and only having to do it once.
     
  12. Firstly, what's a Gadgey? Secondly, isn't that the point of JPA its a computer you input it for each individual just like a pay entry, just like they do every month.
     
  13. Yep. Its the 1st May as long as you get picked up in the first batch, we still have some waiting for last years.

    JPA the way ahead. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
