==Responsibilities Details==
 
-
Each troop is responsible for keeping its own records and reporting advancement to the local council service center. This is done on an Advancement Report form or by using Internet Advancement. One copy is kept by the troop and two are sent to the council with an order for badges and awards. It is best that this form be submitted at least monthly so that troop records remain current and Scouts are able to receive their awards quickly after earning them. Awards cannot be purchased or awarded until the Advancement Report has been filed with the council office. A Troop/Team Record Book, maintained by the troop scribe, is available.
