You will be called to handle higher-ranked reports (like a Captain abuses) and you will be able to interfere with Platoon actions and override existing Platoon (or lower) rules in order to improve your Company.
You get Company budget and you decide which Platoon gets how much.
As head of a Department, you will be in charge of making sure that department is functioning as intended. You will be able to hire officers to help you out, get agent to do the physical interaction for your department and make sure everything is being reported by all officers on time so you can plan your next actions regarding the server through your Department.
You can request which role you would like and it will be up to a Colonel to approve or decline your request.

- Head of a Battalion: make sure both your Majors are doing their work appropriately.
- Head of a Department: make sure your Department is running smoothly. Hire additional officers if you need more work done.

Punishment Methods & Rules Enforcement
Your Team, Squad and Platoon have their own rules. Breaking them will cause you to get punished according to what the rules define as it appears (otherwise - you may report the officer in charge of this action).
When you're being reported or caught breaking general server-rules (such as hacking or swearing) - you will be forwarded for trial in front of your Captain.
Trial - a trial is in front of your Captain (or higher) and gives you the right to explain your actions, no immediate action is taken without your say in it (with pending duration of up to 24 hours, then the default punishment will be taken which is 30 days account ban). After explaining yourself, your Captain (or higher) will decide what your punishment will be. The punishment can range from a fee collection (less budget for you when budget is being given), rank demotion, Class, Squad or Platoon move and can result even an account ban.
General server rules include: no hacking, no swearing, no impersonating, no data leaking, no scamming, no spamming, and no account sharing. Additional rules will be revealed depends on the Class, Squad and Platoon you're in.

Departments
Personnel Department - led by a Colonel. This department is in charge of every member-related action (rank, moving Team/Squad/Platoon, requests to be forwarded to the appropriate departments). This department is always busy as each course that's about to start, registrations, inactivity reports, new commanders, new officers, demotions, members' reports and whatnot go through this department first.


Courses Department - led by a Major. This department is in charge of hosting all sort of courses while working side-by-side with the Personnel and Budget departments. This department can assign course graduates as course trainers, design the course from the bottom and create/remove new/old courses. Indicates which courses require an interview at the end, hours of activity and more.


Enforcement Department - led by a Major. This department is in charge of listing all the server rules and their enforcement by commanders and officers, as well as approving Squad/Platoon rules as they are listed by the appropriate officers. Any rules change goes through this department. Every enforcement must be reported to this department (which will forward it to Personnel) and every report must be provided through this department (for promotion/demotion/course participation reasons). Investigations will be done through this department as well. Every external trial (non-Platoon) will be logged as well.


Budget Department - led by a Colonel. This department is in charge of funding the server and its economics. Every existing Platoon has expenses (funding a course, commanders/officers salaries, event rewards, new comers guidance, etc), these expenses go to this department. This department (along with Personnel) will rank Battalions and Platoons and will privately declare to the appropriate officers what's their weekly budget. Low budget means less events, less worthy rewards and less possible courses to promote.
 

Additional Roles
Additional roles may be requested by a veteran member (Sergeants for 2 months or higher) and are bound to the department's approval, for instance: a new officer is required by the Personnel department - any officer can apply but only when the department officially says one is required.
Non-officers may apply through their commander for assistants positions.
Special roles are for people who wish to help defining the server and its smaller details, such at which dates each course can take place, how many participants, what would be the requirements, sending investigation agents to check on Platoons, checking on commanders, defining promotion standards for officers and senior officers, managing interviews, etc.

Budget
Each Platoon has its own budget based on its reputation and general behavior, rules enforcement, activity, members count, bonuses, salaries and more.
Every week the Budget Department will have to forward each Platoon budget based upon the standards the Platoon sets, which is obtained through critiques and Platoon reports (with the appropriate departments' access).
The Platoon leader is in charge of assigning roles to make the Platoon run efficiently, without letting Senior Officers worry about this Platoon, hereby receiving higher budget which can grant the Platoon special perks and bonuses and features they can access.
Authority ranks may access the Platoon's budget (limitations will be set by the Captain) for their own usage (Staff Sergeant -> Team, Lieutenants -> Squad). These points can be used to host events, granting items (for PvP/PvE), salaries (defined by your Captain), etc.
Keep in mind - a black market option to transfer points from one another exists. All income must be through the Budget department only. If you wish to transfer money to another member, commander or officer - you must do so through the appropriate system!


Important notes:
- Ranks bound per account, not character(s)
- Staff Sergeants will be moved, if necessary, to wherever needed (different Squad, Platoon, Company or Battalion).
- After being inactive for 30 days, your account will be deleted. Commanders, Officers and Senior Officers - 14 days (unless notified in advance).
- You must not bypass authority by any means. If you need personal help - your Commander is your #1 source to get help. If you have a complaint, you may talk to your Squad's Commanders and they will forward it to your Squad's Officer. In case of higher-ranked complaints, address your Commander for help.
- Failing to report a bug, an exploit, or any rule that is being broken by any member of the server is a felony which will be treated by a Platoon's staff (or higher).
- Failing to arrive to a registered course will result in a trial as your Squad or Platoon funded it for you.

Otherwise - you will have to be in a trial in front of a Senior Officer (Major and above).
Captain and higher -> trial by your superior, up to General.
Appealing: possible only through the forum and will cost your Squad/Platoon. They can re-charge you within your next salary or fund it themselves. You may only appeal once and you may get only one result per appeal.
