This is what more than one person is being told by both BGRS and Base F & E Sections. It's a discussion on a social media site (FB) group with military families helping each other thru the processes. I've no vested interest, personally, but...like many people on the site, I advised to request clarification via DCBA thru to their Relocation Coordinator.Where do you see that interpretation?
Tell me, in the policy, where it states that loading/transport/unloading must be paid by the member? It merely states that storage costs (in excess of TNL/IL&M) must be paid by member.What I have been reading from the online forums and social media is that the TB policy is being strictly enforced, at the insistence of the TB. There may be some very valid reasons for this, as I have been also been reading many comments on these same sites for the last 2 or 3 years on how more and more members are moving away from the intent of the door to door policy.
The policy states that member must attempt to organize a door-to-door move to be eligible for the benefits. Other than door-to-door moves are made by exception. Therefore, by the black and white of the policy, members should not be entitled to the benefits if their personal circumstances fall outside these parameters. Because of the way that the policy is chunked up, you can be entitled to be reimbursed for parts of the move, but not others, if they don't fall within the policy.Tell me, in the policy, where it states that loading/transport/unloading must be paid by the member?

Well, if the contractor wants to charge extra for the delay and hassle, and it is due to a member's personal choice, should DND pick up the extra charges?If your F&E go into SIT for 7 days, DND would have to cover reload/move/unload. Not sure why they would not cover reload/move/unload for a SIT of more than is covered by the policy.
