Welcome to the Individual Ready Reserve!



1.  Current changes you need to know.  All personnel in the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) - Active Status Pool (ASP) will be impacted by the recent implementation of Department of Defense (DoD) mandated cyber security measures.  A growing number of DoD sites are now only accessible via a Common Access Card (CAC).  This includes BUPERS Online and Navy Knowledge Online.

2. Organizational structure.  The Navy Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) is a force that consists of personnel who must fulfill their Military Service Obligation (MSO) under Title 10, United States Code, 651, and members fulfilling a service obligation incurred via contract.

The IRR is subdivided into the Active Status Pool (ASP) and the Volunteer Training Unit (VTU).  The ASP is a manpower pool consisting of individuals who have previously served in the active component or in the Selected Reserves (SELRES) and now serve in a non-pay, non-drill status. NAVPERSCOM (PERS-93) is responsible for ASP screening and management. The VTU consists of personnel, organized into units, who serve in a non-pay, drill requirement status.  Navy Operational Support Centers (NOSCs), under the cognizance of NAVRESFORCOM, are responsible for the continual screening and management of their attached VTUs.
