Leaving Stuttgart soon? Make sure you out-process properly By USAG Stuttgart Central Processing Facility

Peak moving season is fast arriving. The Central Processing Facility wants to help you have a smooth transition. All uniformed personnel from all branches as well as Department of Defense civilians, contractors, NonAppropriated Fund, and Army and Air Force Exchange Service employees must clear the Stuttgart community prior to departing. People that are 30-120 days out from departure should participate in an Out-Processing/ Pre-Separation Briefing at the CPF. Briefings are currently held on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 8:15 a.m. to noon in Building 2913 on Panzer Kaserne. The briefings provides information to those making a permanent change of station, separating, or retiring. And includes helpful information from transportation, customs, Tricare, vehicle registration, housing, VAT/UTAP, Exceptional Family Member Program, and Legal, just to name a few.

Out-processing questionnaire

During the briefing you will be asked to complete an “Out-Processing Questionnaire.” This questionnaire is mandatory for those outprocessing, and must be turned in to the CPF in person or via email at least 30 days prior to leaving.

Once the CPF receives your questionnaire, CPF will automatically include you in a time-saving, electronic pre-clear roster. Then, three weeks before you leave, agencies like Outdoor Recreation, the library, and central issuance can clear you with no reason for you to physically go there. If an agency pre-clears you then that agency will not appear on your “Community Clearance List.” Otherwise, the agency marks you as a “must see” and you will have to obtain a signature from them. For those people that submit their questionnaire less than three weeks before their departure date, pre-clearance is not an option, and your “Community Clearance Checklist” will include all necessary organizations and agencies. If you submit your questionnaire less than five days before departing, you will also need a memorandum from your noncommissioned officer in charge or officer in charge, detailing, by name, the individual who will be responsible for finishing your clearance list, if necessary.

Community clearance list

After your pre-clear week, the CPF will generate your individualized “Community Clearance List” tailored to your situation. There is no standard list. For instance, a civilian PCSing from Stuttgart will have a completely different set of clearing stations than a service member retiring from the U.S. European Command. Approximately two weeks

prior to your departure, the CPF will email your “Community Clearance List” directly to the email address you provided on your questionnaire. Personnel have 10 working days to clear. If you are assigned to EUCOM, U.S. Special Operations Command Europe, or USAG Stuttgart your unit requirements will be included on your individualized “Community Clearance Checklist.” All other personnel must also obtain a unit or agency specific clearance sheet from your administrative office. People should know they do not need a “Community Clearance List” to begin making appointments with transportation, housing, or to schedule flights. Only orders are needed to begin outprocessing with those agencies. Housing, transportation, and vehicle registration will sign your clearance list when you finish clearing with them. Whether you have gone through preclear or not, you must obtain a signature from each agency on your clearance list. Marking these “not applicable” or signing off yourself will result in a “Failure to Clear” and be reported to your unit. Your unit commander will then be responsible to assign someone to finish clearing for you.

Final out

The “Final Out” appointment to turn in your completed checklist to the CPF will be set two working days prior to your departure. You are required to come to

the CPF office in person to turn in your clearance papers. If you receive an amendment or cancellation of orders, please let the CPF know your new departure date. Your “Community Clearance List” expires 30 days from issuance. Therefore, if you are delayed by more than two weeks after your original date of departure, you will need to submit another questionnaire to begin the process again. If you are requesting Community Clearance Papers more than 10 workings days prior to departing, the CPF will require a memo from your commander confirming your scheduled leave or temporary duty dates that fall within your last two weeks. Per regulation, personnel using transition leave will completely clear before beginning transition leave. The CPF is located in Building 2913, Room 115 on Panzer Kaserne. They host Out-Processing / PreSeparation Briefings the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 8:15 a.m. to noon. Upcoming briefings are scheduled for April 6, April 20, May 4, May 18, June 1, June 15, July 6, July 20, August 3, August 17, Sept. 7 and Sept. 21.
