As BSA policies for rank entry are enforced, what units enter will meet these requirements:

    Units should submit reports monthly, before the end of each month, as needed. Units must submit anything not yet reported before December 31 each year. Internet Advancement accepts advancement upload files from unit-management software. If you have a scout earning advancement that is not listed on your roster in ScoutNet. That scout needs to be registered.  Please turn in an application for the scout and a separate advancement form that lists his advancement(s). Changes and updates are not officially recorded until the paperwork is submitted to the Flag Plaza Scout Center.  It is still required that advancement reports are turned into Flag Plaza Scout Center or the Scout Shop
