JQS E-JDA Self Nomination


All EJDA self-nomination packages requesting an intensity factor (i.e. duty in a combat zone) must include substantiating documentation for arrival/departure from the operating area to validate boots on ground (BOG) dates.  The approved document to reflect start/stop dates of IDP/HDP is a DFAS adjudicated travel voucher.  FITREPs, Award Citations, and endorsed/signed orders can be provided as supplemental documentation but are not considered standalone documents for the purpose of validating BOG dates.  Requested start and stop dates in E-JDA self-nomination packages should be clearly supported by the documents that are submitted.   



AC and RC officers have ONE YEAR from the end date of their joint experience to self-nominate for E-JDA credit (CJCSI 1330.05). Due to the number of submissions and the frequency with which the Panel meets, the self-nomination process may take 6 to 12 months before your experience is adjudicated.  Your package will be reviewed only by submitting per the procedures listed in the link below.  Feedback will be provided as needed.  Once you have submitted your self-nomination package, the status is recorded on the same website and will be updated as necessary.  You will be referred to your DMDC account for all status inquiries.

Definition of Joint Matters

  E-JDA Lessons Learned and Best Practices 


This is your submission and it is your responsibility to produce a quality product.  We will verify all answers against your support documents. We strongly recommend you draft Joint Experience Summary (JES) prior to logging into the DMDC Self Nomination website. That way you can just cut and paste your answers and reduce the chance of getting timed-out by the website and losing all your data. This is just a suggestion, not a requirement. You are limited to 340 characters in your answers on how you supported the various areas of the definition of Joint Matters.


Please ensure all uploaded files are SANITIZED and completely cover your SSN and the SSN of your reporting senior. Scan files at 150 dpi, black/white, in a .pdf format to help reduce the upload time.  You must login to the website using your CAC card to upload files.  Upload all fitreps as one file in order of oldest to most recent, awards as one file with write-up first then citation, and all other type docs as individual files. Name files as "LASTNAME Fitreps.pdf", LASTNAME Award JT COM.pdf" and so on. Call or email if you have a question on how to organize your files. Please contact the JQS Helpdesk via link at bottom of page of the new website if you have any website issues.
