Can another MOD Dept pay a TA soldiers wages

Weird question I know but I had a problem again come into my Inbox today and I thought could I ask TA soldiers to turn in, solve the problem and not effect units budget?

Do you mean as MACC/MAGD task?
No, its a relatively easy IT problem which some of our TA soldiers could solve. I can't go into details because of the recent DIN and work would sack me if I did.
I want to get around DCSA and work, the baggage is fracking huge. It was a major who emailed me, if he can get around MTD's the solution is very simple.

If you can get this run by Bde (think PR opportunity), then you are on to a winner.

If it can be fixed in a day it should not be a problem.

Ha, kinda. You can get the parent brigade to release MTDs upon receiving appropriate authorisation from PJHQ - who may do so upon request from your customer organisation (you work for a DEC perhaps?). Basically make the 'event' an exercise, find a sponser for it, they'll release a DIN/DCI/Whatever it was, that gives soldiers (reg and reserve) authority to attend.. The Brigade might then approach DEC or whathaveyou for a refund for manpower etc.

I'm no expert, but something similar was engineered a little while ago. Alternatively hire the soldiers in a civilian capacity as contractors to apply their military experience.

Heh, if you have hierachy involved way above the Majors head then career climbers in bde may well sit up and be very helpful.
Why not advertise it as a sponsored cycle ride, get C1 training and pay the troops cash in hand.

everyones a winner and a lot less paperwork :roll:

Mines a bacardi!
Cash in hand! I can really see DCSA or a big IT firm doing that. :D

After a few calls today it appears the 'project' I was talking about would cost £100 000, whereas my idea would have cost £28 000 (52 weekends x 3 soldiers x pay rate of £90)

If you can PM me a full and frank problem, I may be able to give you a solution or at least point you in the direction of someone who may be happy to make a decision at Corsham
