SOLDIERS' STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING - SOU

SAMPLE - US Army Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program Statement of Understanding (SOU)
DATA REQUIRED BY THE PRIVACY ACT OF 1974
AUTHORITY: 10 USC 3013, 'E.O. 9397 SSN (as amended)'

PRINCIPAL PURPOSE: To collect information from applicants for enlistment in the US Army and to authorize PaYS employers to access personal information of PaYS program applicants after they enter the Army.

ROUTINE USES: PaYS employers have entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with the US Army and will contact PaYS enlistment applicants during their Army service and during their transition to the civilian sector. PaYS employers are authorized by this SOU to obtain PaYS enlistees name, phone number and email address to facilitate contact with the applicant. PaYS employers are also authorized to release information concerning individual employment status to the Army for purposes of monitoring the success of the program. Information releasable to the Army includes name, employment status, start date, and generic reasons for employment decisions regarding PaYS applicants.

DISCLOSURE: Voluntary. However, failure to authorize release of information to PaYS employers will prevent the company from contacting the individual to facilitate the employment opportunity.

1. My enlistment for this program assures me that, provided I meet required prerequisites, I will be placed in the Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program. The PaYS program matches acquired skills in my military occupational specialty (MOS) training with (Name of Company), and (Name of Company) who has expressed interest in my skills training, and has anticipated available employment opportunities.

2. The PaYS Program is not a guarantee of employment by (Name of Company) or (Name of Company); it is an opportunity to receive priority consideration for employment. Like all employers, (Name of Company), and (Name of Company) may be subject to changes in business conditions, the need for particular skills due to technological changes, and many other potential contingencies. The Army has assisted in coordinating this/these opportunity/opportunities between (Name of Company), and (Name of Company) and/for me, but is not party to any formal agreement.

3. The Army will not guarantee or enforce this/these priority consideration(s) for employment, and (Name of Company), and (Name of Company) does not guarantee employment. The PaYS Program is not a part of my enlistment agreement and does not annex my enlistment options for the purpose of any claim of unfulfilled or erroneous enlistment. All other aspects of my agreement to enlist are contained in my enlistment contract and statement of enlistment and are not contingent upon or part of the PaYS program for enlistment purposes.

4. I understand that in the event the Secretary of the Army determines that military necessity of a national scope requires that service members are available for immediate assignment and/or reassignment, any aspect of this SOU may be terminated.
