Promotion Exception to Policy for 1 May 2011 As of 12 APR 2011 From HRC Enlisted Promotions: Many Commands were not prepared for the DA 3355 shutdown on 6 Apr 11, in preparation for the implementation of the New Semi-Centralized Promotion system. (The shutdown has been circulating through various media outlets; S1 Net, Army Times, Stars and Stripes, HRC Website, facebook and MILPER Message 11-084).
There were many promotion boards conducted on or near 5 Apr 11 that did not allow sufficient time to get points into the system and validated. Therefore, many Soldiers may be disadvantaged and warrant an ETP if not on the 1 May 11 By Name Promotion List due to promotion points not being validated that should have been. Due to the possibility of a large number of ETPs that may be executed for 1 May 11 promotions; HQDA is designated as the approval authority to ensure equality and fairness. Local ETPs are not authorized. Commands must forward request for ETPs through their chain of Command to HRC, Junior Enlisted Promotions at HRC.TAGD.JR.ENLISTEDPROMOTIONS@CONUS.ARMY.MIL.
ETPs should consist of the following:
1. Memorandum from Promotion Authority requesting ETP - This memo should state why the Soldier should have been on the 1 May 11 By Name Promotion List.
2. Board Proceedings
3. Cut off scores that pertains to the ETP
4. Any other pertinent documents
