I was working a low altitude sector east of den with mostly den departure traffic climbing east. I was issuing speed restrictions to regulate the mix of different types of turbojets. A military air evacuate/evacuation was about seventh in line and I decided to coordinate an off-course vector to preclude a speed restriction to the military air evacuate/evacuation. One of the adjacent sectors involved approved a pointout climbing to FL290. During the rest of the coordination I forgot that and climbed the air evacuate/evacuation to FL330.
Original NASA ASRS Text
Title: RADAR CTLR CLIMBED MIL AIR EVAC TO UNCOORDINATED ALT. OPERATIONAL DEVIATION.
Narrative: I WAS WORKING A LOW ALT SECTOR E OF DEN WITH MOSTLY DEN DEP TFC CLBING E. I WAS ISSUING SPD RESTRICTIONS TO REGULATE THE MIX OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF TURBOJETS. A MIL AIR EVAC WAS ABOUT SEVENTH IN LINE AND I DECIDED TO COORDINATE AN OFF-COURSE VECTOR TO PRECLUDE A SPD RESTRICTION TO THE MIL AIR EVAC. ONE OF THE ADJACENT SECTORS INVOLVED APPROVED A POINTOUT CLBING TO FL290. DURING THE REST OF THE COORD I FORGOT THAT AND CLBED THE AIR EVAC TO FL330.
