PERMS Integrator

The yearly maintenance and support for PERMS Integrator that NGB handles has once again expired. We are currently waiting on a new contract and it has been delayed.


Version 10.6.4 of the TwinEngines Web App Suite is now available. We are still waiting on the new 2014 version of the NGB22 form. Unfortunately, the version that was originally sent to us back in January is going through a pretty major change. It looks like they are revamping the whole form and going away from the 2 page form back to a 1 page form. This means the 2014 version we implemented thinking it would be officially released soon, is going to be significantly different from the final version. Because of this, we've gone back to the 2012 version of the NGB22 until the 2014 version is "officially" approved. If you have digitally signed any of the 2014 version of the NGB22 in the new system, I would recommend going back and re-signing those forms with the 2012 version and sending those docs out to PERMS. When the new version of the NGB22 is officially released, we will be incorporating it into the new TwinEngines Web App Suite version of the Discharges, so you will need to migrate to this version at some point in the near future. I've been offering up training sessions for the new release so if you haven't heard from me about that yet and would like to schedule one for you and your staff, just let me know and we can set that up.

This version includes a new migration utility that will migrate your NGB22 data from the previous version. We've also developed a State level processing workflow for the NGB22 case type. You can import this case type into the system and it will replace the existing one so that instead of the NGB22s getting processed at the unit or BN level, then approved by the G1, all the processing will all occur at the G1 level.

We've been working on implementing multiple Discharge related case types based off of an SOP that the WV-ARNG has developed. These cases will include links to all the applicable regulations and forms. Where we can, we are copying and pasting cited paragraphs from the regulations within the individual tasks, as well as including the actual form in the system. The first couple of case types that we've worked through are the Discharge from the ING (Failure to Muster) and Discharge Trainee (BCT or AIT). We are working on some online demos of using these 2 case types and they will be available here when ready:

If you want to import these case types into your Discharges system, you can download them from here:

TwinEngines Downloads

Then you can import them through the Import/Export Case Type function. These case types can be used within the Discharges application at no additional cost, but they give you a good example of the types of processes outside of Discharges that you can automate through our Case Management product.
