Name and describe the five elements of total force accountability Another important aspect of the citizen soldier relationship, which is also true with Air Force Reserve members, is the broad range of talent and experience that traditional Guard members bring from their civilian jobs to their military assignments.
Why do members of the Air Force Reserve consider themselves Citizen Airmen? Members of the Air Force Reserve, with approximately two-thirds of the selected reserve being composed of traditional reservists (TR), view themselves as citizen Airmen because in addition to their military duties, they are employed in the private secto

Once a UTC has been registered in the MEFPAK, what happens with it next? One the UTC has been registered in the manpower and equipment force packaging (MEFPAK), the UTC can then be postured by an organization in the UTC Availability and with the exception of A-UTCs, can be used in a TPFDD for planning and execution purposes.

Describe the non-standard UTC The non-standard UTC is a UTC in the MEFPAK and TUCHA file that does not have complete movement characteristics.
What is an A-UTC? An A-UTC is a placeholder for deployable capability. In other words, the UTC itself is not deployable and cannot be put into a TPFDD.
Describe the UTC attribute, MEFPAK Responsible Agency (MRA). MEFPAK Responsible Agency (MRA)—formerly known as the MEFPAK Responsible Command, is an organization designated by a Headquarters Air Force (HAF) functional area manager (FAM) to develop and maintain detailed data on a UTC for use throughout the Air For

What is the UTC development process? UTC development is the process of adding a UTC to the MEFPAK, building the manpower and or equipment detail, and getting the UTC added to the TUCHA.
Name the guidelines that will help determine when a UTC must be developed. New UTCs are requested when a desired capability does not exist in a standard UTC. In addition, the following guidelines will help determine when a UTC must be developed: New equipment types enter the inventory, deployable units experience a significant
Where are new UTC requests created? New UTC requests are created in the unit type management (UTM) module utilizing the UTM registration function in DCAPES. In the UTM Registration function, the “Action” choice button gives the user the option of “ADD”, “CHG”, or “CNX”.
What happens to a UTC when it is no longer needed? When a UTC is no longer needed, the MRA can request that the UTC be cancelled. Since this is a registration action, it must be coordinated with other commands that are using the UTC.
