All Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Sea Scout ranks, and all Venturing awards must be reported through the BSA’s Internet Advancement.
All badges of rank, merit badges, Eagle Palms, and Venturing awards are restricted items. Unit leadership may not purchase these insignia for presentation without having filed an advancement report with the local council.
Units should report advancement monthly, but at least quarterly. This assures member records are complete, and is an important element in the Unit, District and Council Journey to Excellence. Missing reports are a serious issue, for example, when it comes to documenting advancement for boards of review, the Eagle Scout rank, and membership transfers or reinstatements.
