specialty code, most PIM have forgotten (if they knew it at all) the Air Force Specialty Code system. The RIPs should be generated annually or biannually and upon a possible conflict. PIM personnel should be told to notify HQ ARPC upon any changes in their specialty status and likewise we the Air Force should maintain continual contact to insure the correct information is reflected in the Automated Personnel Data System. 3. OBSERVATION: Utilization of enlisted PIM in their prior military enlisted specialty rather in their civilian trained specialty. DISCUSSION: Several of the enlisted PIM were recalled to active duty in their prior active specialty (i.e. 902XO, etc.). Some of these reservists had obtained their training and licenses as registered nurses and were naturally working in the civilian community in their given career field. Upon their call up they were required to perform duties under their prior enlisted specialty rather than their current critical skill. They were also subject to being paid a salary substantially lower, because they mobilized as a enlisted member rather than a commissioned officer. ~ RECOMMENDATION: Procedures should be established for the PIM personnel to apply for a commission in the reserves if they meet all other requirements for such a commission. PIM members qualified for commissioning should be identified and offered a commission so that they can be mobilized in their most critical or qualified skill. 4. OBSERVATION: PIM members retired based on High Year of Tenure (HYT) were recalled. DISCUSSION: Individuals who had retired because they had reached their HYT were recalled to active duty and at the same time active duty personnel in the same skill were being retired due to HYT although their skill was under Stop-Loss. A number of individuals were recalled to active duty after retiring due to HYT factors. One individual had not been retired a full month before he received his recall notice. RECOMMENDATION: When implementing Stop-Loss, include HYT individuals (except 0-6s and E-9s based on-30 years). Do not implement the use of retired individuals until members of the Individual Ready Reserve have been exhausted. 5. OBSERVATION: An active PAS Code was used to assign PIM personnel while processing through Lackland AFB instead of one of the established PIM PAS Codes. DISCUSSION: By using an already established active PAS Code it is difficult for the CBPO as well as Accounting and Finance to discern who, in the active PAS, are PIM personnel. In the case of PIM processing for Desert Storm, it was determined the records (both personnel and finance) need not be sent to Lackland as they (PIM) would only be there 5 days. Finance could not stop flowing finance records to individuals accessed to the PAS used because there were PIM personnel and active personnel assigned to it. This caused delays in PIM personnel receiving there first pay check.
