How to Fill out DA Form 4037-E?
Procedural guidelines and additional information can be found in the DA Pamphlet 600-8-104, released in April 2007. DA Form 4037-E instructions are as follows:
- The information for the ORB is sent by the Officer's superiors to the United States Army Military Personnel Center (MILPERCEN) via Standard Installation and Division Personnel Reporting System (SIDPERS) and into the OMF. Some data is provided by the HQDA. Certain data - including religious preference, the number of dependents and marital status - is manually reported by the Officer.
- The Officer is required to annually review their ORB, annotate corrections and provide their signature and date. A copy of the previous record can be obtained directly from the HQDA by a written request, which should include the name, grade, SSN, branch of service or functional area or MOS, mailing address and signature. The request should be sent to HQDA (ASNI-SMC), ALEX, VA, 22332-0400.
- When reviewing the DA Form 4037-E the Officer should check each item and report any omissions, errors and new changes to the Personnel Center. The Personnel Center will submit a SIDPERS transaction or send a letter to the appropriate HQDA office to update the OMF. In some cases, the officer will be requested to provide proof for the proposed changes if the associated information is not available at the Personnel Center.
