REMINDER: AROWS-R usage mandatory

All Individual Mobilization Augmentees (IMA), are reminded that the use of the Air Force Reserve Order Writing System (AROWS-R), is mandatory for all AF Forms 938, Request and Authorization for Active Duty Training/Active duty Tour and DD Forms 1610, Request and Authorization for TDY Travel of DoD Personnel for all active and reserve component personnel assigned to the Air Force Reserve.

This policy ensures accountability of our members, funds control, participation tracking and adherence to Financial Improvement Audit Readiness (FIAR) compliancy guidelines.

Because AROWS-R is used for several key measured internal controls, not using this system due to outside funding sources is not authorized. Outside agencies responsible for paying associated travel costs must either provide a certified Fund Cite Authorization Letter (FCAL) or establish an approval process within the AROWS-R.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to your servicing HQ RIO Detachment for support.
