1 July 2009 (Periodic Review)
(Last updated 09 August 2013)
History. The consolidated Personnel Policy Guidance (PPG) was originally approved for release on 17 September 2002 (ALARACT 086-2002). The intent of its development was to consolidate Theater and Department of the Army PPGs into one document in support of contingency operations. Due to rapid policy changes, it was determined that the PPG would best serve as a living document, rather than a published regulation. This decision allows for continuous updates based on approved policy guidance/revisions. Newly approved changes to regulation, policy, Department of Defense Instruction (DoDI) or law may supersede this document.
Summary. This publication has been revised to update personnel guidance related to mobilized, employed, deployed, redeployed, and demobilized personnel in support of the overseas contingency operation (OCO).
Applicability. This publication applies to active Army, the Army National Guard, U.S. Army Reserve, retired Soldiers, Department of the Army civilians, Department of Defense civilians, contractors, Red Cross employees, and Army Air Force Exchange Services employees. Contributing Authors. HQDA G-1 is not the sole author of the PPG, the following HQDA staff elements, commands and agencies contribute to its content: G-2, G-3/5/7, G-4, G-8, HRC, OTSG, OTJAG, IMCOM, TRADOC, FORSCOM, USARC, NGB, and First Army. Since the input provides Army wide guidance that affects the personnel community, any changes/updates submitted by HQDA staff elements, commands and agencies must be based on approved changes to regulation, policy, DoDI, or law.
Suggested Improvements. Users are invited to make comments, recommendations, and/or suggested improvements via the HQDA G-1 Operations email box at email@example.com. Distribution. Distribution of this publication is available in electronic media only and is intended for the Active Army, the Army National Guard, the U.S. Army Reserve, Department of the Army Civilians, Department of Defense Civilians, Contractors, Red Cross Employees and Army Air Force Exchange employees.
