FSA STUFF - EPICS

#1
Anyone out there come across cash payments for AWOL knobbers? As far as I can tell the process is to print off the EPIC form, keep it in your DCCA and fax the form to APC (got that little nugger from them as Bde were as clueless as me).

Anyone doing things any differently?

As I haven't had an AFPAA clearance print since, oh.... Julember, I would also be grateful for any phone numbers you guys and gals may have so I can chase them, oracle prints are great if you speak mandarin Chinese!!

Try Michelle Macguiness - AFPAA Clearances. PM me for phone number, would put it up here but I am sure she wouldnt appreciate all the ARSSE readers phoning her in Glasgae! Although maybe she would.....

Thanks BBB, I read the bulletin last week. Is there a new one? On JPA HR course at the mo so haven't been to work or near a JPA terminal. When I read the last one it wasn't fully clear so I rang APC and was told by them to fax a manual EPIC!!!!

At least I have a piece of paper to cover my DCCA until Julember when it gets sorted he he. Not really worried about it too much but would like to be in line with the everyone else.

Thanks again.

Western relax. I simply saw the avatar and, being new to the site and not knowing where people got them from, copied it. Big deal, no offence was made. It is changed now so what is the big deal.

I fail to see what difference my cap badge is......

Ah, now I get it. I was wondering why F6 and F9 didn't work!!! Too busy remembering that I no longer have a job description but a position profile and will be assigned not posted. Apparently at the end of the course we get to sing the Star Spangled Banner. The words are on JPA somewhere......

And there was me thinking that when the scroat went awol, the entry was made and a Girobank credit note was sent to the individual at the unit address! Tell me more :?

Wicked Witch I too was under the impression that such a process was being put in place. However, when the VWOs are asked if this system is in place no answer is issued. Perhaps they, like us, simply don't know or perhaps it is SECRET. I rang JPAC (I should copy that phrase for continual pasting) and got a blank stare down the phone.

That said, I think it is a problem with non UK units. I asked where these giros from heaven would be cashed and was given a blank stare again from Bde, JPAC and even the BFPO on camp. All I know is that I read somewhere they can't be cashed through the imprest.

On a similar note however I was shown today how to do an EPIC on JPA correctly. Have a look at the e-learning guide, it is quite informative and the process is scarily simple although with no tie in to UNICOM the AFPAA clearance will still need to show the money being credited to your DCCA. I think I will use that from now on until instructed otherwise by my Lords and Masters......
