Home' Army Acquisition Logistics and Technology Magazine : Army ALT July-September 2013 Contents mitigate budgetary issues in FY13. Army
acquisition students who have approval
to use DAU central funds to attend train-
ing should not cancel the training due to
budget constraints. Cancellation requests
attend will be denied if they are received
less than 30 days from the class start or
reser vation cuto date with funding con-
straints cited as a reason. Students then
will be deemed "no-shows" if they do not
attend the scheduled training.
For FY13, USAASC will continue to
centrally fund training at cost-e ective
locations selected by the student. Com-
mands and supervisors should continue
to support and send their employees to
required DAWIA training. To view the
DAU travel status memo, dated Jan. 29,
2013, go to http://asc.army.mil/web/
For FY14, travel funds will be cut signi -
cantly. At this point, USAASC expects to
fund only Priority 1 (required training)
travel to cost-e ective locations. Depend-
ing on the situation, USAASC may elect
to centrally fund Priority 2 training as
well. (See Figure 1.)
DAU plans to support the teaching
schedule under furlough conditions. Stu-
dents can view the furlough schedule at
Furlough.aspx. Students attending a
DAU course will assume the furlough
schedule of DAU, not that of their home
organization, for the duration of their
DAU course management has a new
process to allow higher-priority, speci -
cally Priority 1, students rst preference
in the DAU resident courses. As a result,
students in Priorities 2 through 5 will be
wait-listed for classes showing available
seats; 65 days before the class start date,
students placed on a waiting list will
roll into a reservation for seats that have
not been reser ved by Priority 1 students.
Lower-priority students could still be
bumped up to ve business days before
the class reservation cuto date or start
date, whichever is earlier, if a higher-
priority student applied within the 65
days. e new process minimizes bump-
ing and allows Priority 1 students to see
which courses have seats available for
them to obtain their required position

aitas. Applications cannot be processed
by the Army registrar s o ce until the
supervisor has approved the training.
It is imperative that the student s and
supervisor s email addresses are correct in
the AITAS student pro le.
Once a student has received a con rmed
reser vation in the requested class, he or
she should attend the class as scheduled.
Cancellation requests for con rmed res-
er vations must be submitted at least 30
calendar days before the class starts or by
the reservation cuto date, whichever is
earlier, to avoid a no-show.
