Promotion and CRs

#1
What's the impact of someone's CR having not been completed in time for the annual promotion board?

Obviously, the CR won't be available as a discussion point, but is there any follow-on action, such as pointed questions about why it was not completed in the three months between the end of the reporting year and the Board?

Out of interest, how long does it usually take for a promotion to make its way from promotion board back to the person who was up for it? I was up for my first stripe on the May board, I realise I haven't got it this time, but was wondering what sort of turn around time they usually have?

Not sure if its the same in the TA however if your CR is delayed in reaching MCM Div until after the board has sat then they convene a special board your CR gets marked in the usual way and if you score above the promotion line then you get promoted.

To do anything else would be to career foul the individual for the incompetence of others.

Like I say not sure how it works in the TA however I have known of RCMOs calling MCM Div to position/score of a quality individual to backbrief only to find they slipped through the system, subsequently boarded and promoted.

Took about two to three weeks for all of ours, from the board meeting & selection, manning to agree & JPA/whoever to process them.

About four weeks ago now, about 7 of us from 51(Scottish) Bde RTC went one up.

Promotions in TA units are now done internally by whoever has completed the the Career Manager module for JPA. All TA units had to send at least one representative to MCM Div to complete the training. Once the internal board has sat and the person has been selected, providing there is a vacancy, the unit completes the promotion action on JPA. This is up to and including Captain. Majors are authorised at Bde and those above are done at MCM Div TA & Res Wing. I have the policy document should anyone need a copy.

We had a whole batch of guys promoted on annual camp at the end of June

There didn't seem any problems beyond getting all the attendees in the same place at the same time

JPA is working fine in my unit. We have no outstanding pay issues. There is a problem with anything which dates back to pre JPA go live but they are working on that. As long as the clerks input the attendance by 2200 hrs on 25 of each month you will get paid within about 4 days of that.

Going back to the original question...

Is it likely that failure to complete the CR process in time for a (TA) promotion board would be considered reasonable grounds for a formal Redress?

How would that impact any decisions already taken by the Board?
 
#16
onYes it would be grounds for a formal redress. I am not sure where or when your board took place or what rank you are hoping to be but the boards are usually conducted internally. Therefore, the CO can ask that your CR be put before an additional board to see if you are promotable.
