Army Suspends SRB for First Time in 10 years

Army Times reports that “for the first time since 2006, the Army has suspended its Selective Retention Bonus program until the end of the fiscal year.”  

“The suspension went into effect Tuesday and is expected to be in place until Sept. 30, the end of fiscal 2016, according to information from the Army G-1 (personnel). The program is expected to resume no later than Oct. 1, officials said.”  

“’The decision to suspend the SRB program was based on the current and projected success of the Army’s retention program, needs and budget constraints,’ said Lt. Col. Jerry Pionk, an Army spokesman, in a statement to Army Times. ‘Currently, we are projecting we will be at about 106 percent of our retention mission across all [military occupational specialties].’”
