GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Reference (a) provides the background, objectives, and instructions for the virtual TIP WG on 14 and 15 March 2023. This message provides final guidance to sponsors who must submit formal school training requirements to that working group. More importantly, this message requires sponsors to identify any anticipated increase in FY23 or FY24 requirements due to changes in operational requirements or lost training opportunities prior to the WG convening.
2. WG execution.
2.a. The WG will meet virtually via Microsoft Teams. To join the virtual team, open Microsoft Teams and select at the bottom left of the screen, "Join or create a team." Search for team name "FY25 - 29 TIP WG."
2.b. When established, dial-in information will also be posted within the virtual team. If attendees are unable to participate via Teams, use the point of contact provided to ask for dial-in instructions. Those who use Commercial Virtual Remote Teams may need to dial-in.
2.c. Within the virtual team, under the tab "Files," the working group host will post an agenda and any other documents attendees may need in advance.
2.d. The scope of the working group will only address courses that have more than one sponsor and a total requirement that exceeds course capacity. For courses not satisfying those two criteria, Student Registrar Branch will validate those requirements outside of the 14-15 March WG. There is no attendance requirements for sponsors whose course requirements do not meet the stated two criteria above. Sponsors not required to attend this working group will have their FY25 through FY29 TIP inputs verified via the Marine Corps Training and Information Systems (MCTIMS) Sponsor TIP Tool.
2.e. For any course that does not meet the above criteria but warrants close attention, the Student Registrar Branch will contact the sponsor(s) of that course to ensure their attendance. The agenda posted within Microsoft Teams will identify sponsors who are expected to attend, as well as sponsors whose attendance is not required. Also, if a sponsor not listed to attend the WG believes a course warrants close attention, please contact Student Registrar Branch to nominate the course.
