Personnel Accounting and Strength Reporting
o This change incorporates the Army Internal Control Program of AR 11-2, Internal Control System, into this regulation for the four covered management control processes: the Personnel Register (DA Forms 647 and 647-1), Strength Reports, the Personnel Asset Inventory (PAI) (DA Form 3986-R), and Personnel Mobilization. This change also adds the required checklists for these processes to this regulation as appendices.
o Prescribes changes in policy and procedures governing military personnel accounting and strength reporting and authorizes the use of a new DA Form 4187-1-R (Personnel Action Form Addendum) to be used in conjunction with the DA Form 4187 (Personnel Action) when action must be forwarded to the next level of command for further processing. Also, this change clarifies personnel accounting procedures for Reserve Component (RC) soldiers ordered to active duty in support of any phase of mobilization and makes other administrative changes. This change will result in more efficient reporting of soldier duty status changes and will ensure that RC soldiers are properly accounted for in SIDPERS.
