Transportation Officers (TOs) are appointed or designated by the commander of a military activity to perform traffic management functions. This person may be designated as "installation transportation officer," "traffic manager," "traffic management officer," or "passenger transportation officer." Specific actions that TOs may take:
- Assist in the development of organization business rules
- Manage and reconcile Centrally Billed Accounts (CBAs)
- Handle short notice travel
- Coordinate group travel
- Arrange travel through Patriot Express
CBA Specialist is the term used in DTS to identify the person who is responsible for reconciliation and certifying the invoice for payment made against the Centrally Billed Account. The CBA-Specialist was previously referred to as the "Transportation Officer", though TOs do not always perform CBA reconciliation.
