Anyone on here know anything about putting your GTC into the PCS Program? How the program works, or how to apply?

Get with your battalion GTC CARD manager before you PCS and make sure your card is in an active PCS status. Cards are usually deactivated when you clear but can be kept active by your last manager for PCS with school encounters reasons.

If you have a Government Travel Charge Card, El Jefe is correct, get with the card manager prior to departure from your losing unit. They will need to enter on and off dates for your card in their system. Make sure you have a copy of your orders and leave form with you when you contact them so they can verify the dates when you will be on Official Government Travel (PCS, TDY, etc...). Usually they put the "off" date around 30 days after your scheduled arrival date at the next unit.

Getting Official Travel expenses reimbursed when you use the card should be no problem. As usual, save your receipts, but depending on what your orders state, you may or may not be authorized to use your card (IBA) for airfare and be reimbursed, or you may be required to use a generic Government account (Army provides a ticket at no cost to you "CBA"). If you are supposed to use the "CBA" but buy your own ticket anyway, reimbursement may be an issue.

After your travel, or every 30 days depending on TDY enroute time, you will submit a voucher for settlement. When you submit your travel voucher, remember to mark the "split disbursement" box on the top of your DD 1351-2 and enter any amount of your travel settlement you want to go towards the card balance.

Confirm your travel plans with your local finance outprocessing personnel, travel office, and the card manager before "assuming" that common sense rules all aspects of the Army.

Found this, and in my experience, if your Travel Card people have never been asked about this, you might wanna hand them this if they look at you like you are crazy....


PCS program guidance

And it is in the DoDFMR (Department of Defense Financial Management Regulation) Volume 9 Ch. 3, and states:

The Department of Defense (DoD) policy is that the Government Travel Charge Card (GTCC) will be used by all DoD personnel to pay for all costs related to official Government travel. Official government travel is defined as travel under competent orders while performing duties pertaining to official government assignments such as temporary duty (TDY) and permanent change of station (PCS) (where applicable).

Very surprising about this question since I have a Government Travel Card. Every time, I received an out processing form from Company/S1, there was a line that specifically stated to go to G8 or someone to place the card in transfer status.

This is common practice.

-TheWiseChief: For our Regiment they have BN S-4 personnel and a Regimental S-4 handling Travel Card administration.... So I guess it varies by organization and MACOM guidance...

Yes, that is what I meant by "or someone to place the card in transfer status". With my current unit; I had to go to an NCO that worked in S3 to move my account info.

Is this the most up to date Memorandum on the subject of use of GTCC during PCS?
