Assignment Satisfaction Key
Web access to enlisted assignment information is the key to electronically influencing your career
You can update assignment preferences and related information through a newly developed web application. The "Assignment Satisfaction Key" or "ASK" Internet tool provides the capability to post assignment preference information directly to the Total Army Personnel Database. U.S Army Human Resources Command (HRC) Enlisted Personnel Management Directorate (EPMD) assignment managers will use this information when considering you for assignments.
Under the old "Dream Sheet" days, you could choose from 230 CONUS locations and 280 OCONUS locations, but had little chance of being assigned to any of the locations. "ASK" requires you to select two CONUS locations from a Divisional Installation Listing and one CONUS location form a more expanded listing. You may select three of four OCONUS locations.
By providing you with realistic location options, our goal is to match Army readiness requirements with your preferences. You are contributing to the overall decision process and your vote counts. While U.S Army Human Resources Command (HRC) must still fill unique assignments, the majority of assignment locations will be available for you to select. Those who decline to submit preferences will be assigned according to the needs of the Army.
