On behalf of the Secretary of the Army, the Army Review Boards Agency (ARBA) serves as the highest administrative level for review of personnel actions taken by lower levels of the Army and administers 14 boards. ARBA also provides policy oversight of the Army Corrections System (Army prison system) and law enforcement.
