Question/Discussion

Discussion about Army Enterprise Systems Integration Program (AESIP)

Lance: Changes to AESIP Portal o/a Jan 6, 2020. The AESIP Portal URL (https://aesip.army.mil/irj/portal) will no longer be directly accessible to AESIP Hub applications. Redirected link will be to the Army Enterprise Portal URL (https://enterprise.armyerp.army.mil).


Question about AR 190-11 vs AR 190-13 (two responses)

Theodore: Current publications state we must put that individuals have been screened IAW AR 190-11 in the 1687 remarks block.  Should we now put AR 190-13 due to ALARACT 062/2019?

QUESTION

Question about Brass Deformer and Safety Site Plan (One Response)

Robert: My unit is looking at using a brass deformer IAW the DA PAM 385-64, Chapter 4, Safety Site Planning, (13) Establishes or designates locations for equipment (such as, brass deformers) used to process spent cartridge cases, range residue, and so forth.

Question: If the brass is already Certified and verified explosive free, as it would be going to DLA, why would the unit need a DDESB safety site plan?
