  • TIME Procedure Manual

    The purpose of this procedure is to (1) familiarize Agencies with TIME edits so that these errors will be avoided when preparing T&As and (2) inform Agencies of the action taken by NFC to release T&As from suspense. It is not to be used for preparing T&As for processing; the Time and Attendance Instructions (TNAINST) should be used for that purpose.
