In-processing is held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:00 a.m. in the Military Personnel Flight Conference Room. In-processing is scheduled through your unit Commander's Support Staff. If you plan on taking Permissive TDY for house hunting or leave after arriving, please in process with our office first to prevent over/under payment of Military Pay entitlements. Members are required to in-process with finance not later than 5 days before their date of arrival at Beale. For in processing questions please e-mail email@example.com
Travel settlements are paid through the Financial Services Center at Ellsworth AFB. Payments are typically made within 8 business days of the voucher being submitted. Also, all members can use their Controlled Spend Account (CSA), for all official travel related expenses. Be sure to visit your departing FSO within 30 days of your departure so they can brief you concerning your PCS pay and travel entitlements and prepare your records for departure. The FSO may be reached by calling customer service at DSN 368-2205 or commercially at (530) 634-2205. For travel questions please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for active duty and 9CPTSReserveTravel@beale.af.mil for reservists.
The Defense Travel System (DTS) is an online TDY order and voucher system. DTS is designed to put the member in charge, giving them the ability to know when their orders are ready to go. Every squadron on Beale AFB has a few select individuals, known as Organizational Defense Travel Administrators (ODTA), that know DTS in order to help with any issues along the way. Once you in-process the base, ensure you get with your squadron ODTA to update your profile in DTS. This includes your new e-mail address, home address, squadron, GTC/CSA card information and your EFT banking information. Please ensure all of these items are updated at all times, especially if you know you will be traveling. After your travels are done you will need to create a voucher in DTS to close out your orders. Ensure you have all required receipts which include itemized lodging receipts, airfare, rental car and anything over $75. These receipts cannot have estimated costs and will go under the substantiating records page in your voucher. Upon completion your squadron Approving Officials (AO) will audit your document and approve or return the voucher pending any additional action required. Once approved, it takes 2-3 business days for DTS to disburse funds. Please get in contact with your squadron ODTA first if there are any issues with your DTS experience. The ODTA is the liaison between the squadron and Finance at Beale AFB. If they are unavailable we will be happy to assist you in any way we can.
For DTS questions please contact your ODTA. You can also e-mail your questions to DTS.Help.Desk@beale.af.mil
For budget questions please contact your resource advisor or you can e-mail email@example.com
