INDIVIDUAL RESERVIST MANAGEMENT
|Publication Date:||5 July 2018|
The Individual Reservist Program manages the recruitment, training, assignment, mobilization, promotion, separation and retirement of individual reservists. The Program is composed of two categories of Individual Reservists: the Individual Mobilization Augmentee and the Participating Individual Ready Reservist.
Individual Mobilization Augmentee authorizations are individual military Air Force Reserve Component assets, functioning as a total-force multiplier to augment the active component structure of the Department of Defense or other departments or agencies of the United States Government and must be filled to support mobilization requirements, contingency operations, operations other than war, or other specialized or technical requirements.
Individual Mobilization Augmentees are assigned against validated Reserve Component billets that are identified on Active Component force structure documents for fill by Reserve Component members.
Individual Mobilization Augmentee position requirements are established in accordance with Air Force Instruction 38-201, Management of Manpower Requirements and Authorizations, and Air Force Instruction 38-204, Programming USAF Manpower.
Individual Mobilization Augmentees are members of the Selected Reserve and assigned to training and retired category designator B, which establishes the minimum mission and training obligations.
The Participating Individual Ready Reserve consists of those Ready Reservists who are not in the Selected Reserve, are in a non-pay training program and participate for retirement points only. Members in this category are attached to an active component or reserve component unit. Participating Individual Ready Reservists may participate for pay and points when mission requirements dictate the need and funds are available.
The Participating Individual Ready Reserve encompasses, but is not limited to, Admissions Liaison Officers, Civil Air Patrol Reserve Assistance Program, and Ready Reinforcement Personnel Section.
Participating Individual Ready Reservists are assigned to training and retired category designator - E which establishes the minimum mission and training obligations.
