web orders

The Installation Personnel Administration Center (IPAC) located on the second deck of Building 2006, Hawkins Avenue, (Headquarters & Service Battalion Building) will provide 3 copies of the web orders publisheded by HQMC and will contact the individual Marine's command to inform them that a Marine in their command is pending orders. The command is responsible for ensuring that the Marine goes to IPAC to receive a Transfer Data Sheet and orders endorsement for DMO purposes. The web orders usually precede the issuance of Original Orders by as much as 90 days or more and can be used to do preliminary scheduling of pre-move items such as household goods move, making transportation arrangements, scheduling housing inspections and PCS Workshop attendance. IPAC will instruct personnel to return to their command for issuance of their check-out sheets and further out-processing. After the final check-out sheet is complete, personnel will return to IPAC for check-out completion and issuance of Original Orders.


PCS CONUS Workshops
Mandatory attendance for E-1 thru E-6, WO-1 & CWO-2, and O-1 thru O-3. The PCS CONUS workshops are usually held on Thursdays from 0900-1200 at the Religious and Family Services Annex, 3019 Embry Loop). For further information and/or class registration, call the Relocation Assistance Program Office at 703-784-2659.

PCS OCONUS Workshops
Mandatory attendance for ALL (accompanied and unaccompanied) personnel in receipt of overseas orders. The PCS OCONUS workshops are held at the Religious and Family Services Annex, 3019 Embry Loop. For further information and/or class registration, call the Relocation Assistance Program Office at 703-784-2659.

Attendees at the PCS CONUS and PCS OCONUS workshops are provided an Attendance Completion Letter which must be returned to IPAC. The PCS Completion Letter must be on file at IPAC in order for personnel to pick up and receive their Original Orders upon final departure from the base.

Personnel in receipt of PCS orders are expected to schedule their own attendance for the most convenient workshop that their work/time schedule allows. PCS CONUS/OCONUS Workshop Schedules are available from IPAC or the MCCS Relocation Assistance Office.


post office

For personnel going on OCONUS assignments, the assigned sponsor should establish a postal address where personal postal mail can be forwarded.

Personnel living in the enlisted barracks that have a post office box assigned to them must check out with the Military Post Office so that they can be removed from that address and free up the post office box for assignment to newly joined personnel.


Marines that are departing their current command for assignment to other commands, including CONUS duty stations, may request the assignment of a sponsor to facilitate the transition from one duty station to another. The Sponsorship Request Forms can be obtained and submitted through the local Marine Corps Community Services Relocation Assistance Office. MCB Quantico has established Sponsorship Coordinators at each unit aboard the base. The unit Sponsorship Coordinators work with the MCCS Relocation Assistance Program Office and manage the Sponsorship Program, including the assignment and training of sponsors. After a sponsor is identified, they ensure the preparation and mailing of a Command Welcome Letter to the inbound Marine. This letter will contain the sponsor's name and an invitation to the inbound Marine to correspond with the Command or directly with the sponsor.

Some of the many items that sponsors can assist with include the following:  meeting the newcomer and/or family at the appointed arrival location; escorting the newcomer through the process of checking in; escorting the newcomer to the Housing Referral Office; providing a tour of the base, including pointing out areas of interest; helping the newcomer check on household goods and auto shipments; escorting him/her to the BEQ, TEQ, or BOQ for room assignment; and, if unaccompanied, assisting in getting children registered for school, arranging for pets to stay in kennel (if needed), and assisting with vehicle registration.

OCONUS personnel in the grades of E-1 through E-5, WO-1 through CWO-2, and O-1 through O-3 are assigned a sponsor.  Accompanied OCONUS personnel of all ranks will be assigned a sponsor.  Other personnel will be assigned a sponsor upon request.
