What do I need to do if I am relieved as a Travel Manager? 

Case 1 - If you are being relieved and not PCSing, then a relief letter is required.  Please Click here for the Travel Manager Relief Letter.

Case 2 - If you are PCSing, our internal control process will note this and your access will be revoked automatically.  No relief letter is required in this case. 

How to request PaymentNet Auditor access:

Auditor level access provides read only access to the JPMC online system.  Auditors do not have the ability to change any cardholder data within the system.  Typically this access is limited to personnel at PPC and FINCEN in order to reconcile travel claims or process claims for split disbursement to JPMC.  Other sites, such as a TRACEN may also consider requesting an AO also be delegated as an auditor to improve internal controls over potential misuse by the students.  If your command has a valid need to establish a GTCC auditor, please use this GTCC Auditor request template and submit to ARL-PF-CGPSC-JPMC-GTCC to the GTCC Program Manager for consideration.
