BOR modernizes In/Out forms

The Base Orderly Room (BOR) has completed a successful trial of a digital form that changes the way Canadian Armed Forces members do business.

Military members posted to CFB Esquimalt and CFB Halifax can now complete their In/Out routine form via online application.

In/Out forms are essential documents that enable military members to receive personal liability and clearance certificates, pay and records documentation, amd mess affiliation when leaving an existing posting and arriving at a new one.

Prior to the launch of the trial in May, all In/Out routine forms were paper hard copy.

Lt(N) Alex Uddin, BOR Officer In Charge, says the modernization was born out of necessity.

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, the BOR faced many challenges including members not being able to physically come into the BOR. This resulted in the modernization of our delivery of core services through digital methods. Part of that mission was to streamline the In/Out routine for members being posted to and leaving the base, which resulted in a digitized process instead of a physical paper copy.”

The PDF-based forms require a digital signature to complete. The document is accessible on the DWAN browser. The digital form can be used in Esquimalt or Halifax or to transfer from any other CAF base.

The trial of the digital forms received positive feedback, says Lt(N) Uddin. The program received final approval and is now live, they anticipate the new digital forms will become a permanent feature.
