We had a JPA Brief a few weeks ago.wysiwyg said:Have I got it totally wrong or did I fall asleep during the presentation. I thought that JPA required us to enter our own data onto a computer??rosinacarley said:they are a new thing for JPA apparently, we have them now!
Ahhh I've got it now. Perhaps KA does not have implicit faith in the wonderful computer network that we have!!!!
I understand that all reserve training will now take place at a naval establishment during the weekend with the majority of the time being taken up by queueing for a JPA terminal and then moving on to fill in a chit. Said chit to be passed back to unit permanent staff for onward transmission to the JPA help line when it is a) open and b) free from 25000 regulars trying to get through.
Result will be an increase in back problems for the cleaners and significant increase in landfill!!!
We will only need to use JPA to claim travel. Someone in the unit(not the Writers, as they are going) will input pay claims. CWTR confirmed this. Not sure if we need to use JPA to claim travel for a drill night, but as we don't submit C30's for drill nights, I suspect not.
