Does my career have to be put on hold because of Brigade’s mistake?

I missed points for E6 two months ago by 5 points. My S1 messed up my ERB and put more points than i had. HRC had me on the by-name list for the March 1, my BN S1 told Brigade to take me off the by-name list since i missed the points. Unfortunately, Brigade never took me off and points just came out and I have 200 more points than i need for promotion, but i am not on the by-name list since Brigade didn't do their job. Is there a way i can get promoted or does my career have to hit a stand still again while I wait for next month's points to come out?

If you rightfully met cut-off with points you actually have (not including points erroneously given to you), then I see no reason why you should not be promoted. I suggest you bring this issue up the the chain-of-command for their involvement in getting your issue resolved through all S1 echelons and HRC.
