Are waivers for Time In Service/Grade still authorized under the new promotion system?

Under the new promotion system are waivers authorized for time in grade and time in service to sergeant and staff sergeant?


A revised version of AR 600-8-19 has not been published but is in the works. There has been no talk about changing the current policy in regards to waivers to Sergeant or Staff Sergeant.
