Scanning the Horizon

The Air Reserve Personnel Center in Denver on Aug. 4 reached an important milestone by electronically scanning the last paper copy of a personnel record from an Air Force Reserve Command unit. Over the past year, employees at the center, who are supporting the Air Force’s transition from paper to electronic personnel records, scanned a total of 54,649 records. Now, traditional reservists and individual mobilization augmentees can view their records at the center’s secure Web site. “Even if members are deployed, they have access to their records,” said MSgt. Lina Revis, quality assurance evaluator in ARPC’s directorate of records quality management. The next phase of the transition is to scan more than 100,000 records of individuals who have separated or retired or who belong to the Individual Ready Reserve. (Denver report by Mike Molina)
