1. What is the DTOD's purpose and intent?

The DTOD (https://dtod.sddc.army.mil/default.aspx):

a.  Is the only official source for worldwide PCS and TDY distance information.

b.  Replaces all other sources used for computing distance (except for airplanes as in JTR, par. 2650-B ).

c.  Uses zip code to zip code distance within the CONUS and non-foreign OCONUS areas and city to city distance elsewhere (e.g., within foreign locations or to/from foreign locations).

All DoD facilities (CONUS and OCONUS) are supposed to be listed in the DTOD.  If a facility cannot be located, SDDC should be informed of the missing location.  A missing facility can be added to the DTOD system.  All feedback should be directed through the DTOD website at https://dtod.sddc.army.mil/default.aspx.

d.  Provides distances which must be rounded to the nearest mile for each leg of a journey.

2. Does DTOD measure all types of official business travel distance?

No, DTOD does not apply to the following travel distances that are determined by odometer readings:

a. In and around the PDS or TDY sites,

b. Between home/office and transportation terminal,

c. For short distance moves, within the same city, or

d. Round trip travel between home and active duty tour site for a RC member performing active duty when the member commutes under the provisions of JTR, par. 7355-B .

3. Is there any information in the JFTR/JTR concerning DTOD?

Yes. See JTR, par. 2650 for DTOD information.

4. What if the website is unavailable?

Contact the DTOD 24 Hour Help Desk at (800) 462-2176.
