RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces revised selective reenlistment bonus (SRB) 
award levels and reenlistment policy for active component (AC) and full time 
support (FTS).  This NAVADMIN supersedes reference (a).

2.  Increased award levels are effective immediately and decreased levels are 
effective 30 days after the release of this NAVADMIN.

3.  Continuing with the policy initiated by reference (b), reenlistment
requests for the following SRB award levels will be approved based on quota
availability.  Commander, Navy Personnel Command, Enlisted Career
Administration Division (PERS-81) maintains the current list of SRB eligible
ratings/skills based on available quotas at the following website:
http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-
npc/career/enlistedcareeradmin/pages/srb.aspx.  Addendums to the current
award message posted on this site provide notification of skill closures and
supersede the current NAVADMIN.  For those commands with limited internet
access, command career counselors (CCC) should contact Enlisted Active
Programs (PERS-811) directly for the latest updates.  SRB reenlistment
requests must be submitted to PERS-81 via Officer Personnel Information
System (OPINS) or Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) 35-120
days in advance of the Sailors requested reenlistment date.  Eligible
Sailors desiring SRB reenlistment are encouraged to work with their chain-of-
command as early as possible within their reenlistment window to maximize
potential for SRB.

6.  Notes
    a.  The SRB for this rating or Navy enlisted classification
(NEC) is tied to an incumbent billet or to orders negotiated for the next
billet.  Commands must verify if the member is currently in, or has orders to
a billet requiring this NEC and annotate this verification in the comments
section of the precertification request.  Personnel not in their negotiating
window at the time of reenlistment should sign Administrative Remarks
(NAVPERS 1070/613), agreeing to take orders to an NEC billet.  The NAVPERS
1070/613 should be forwarded to members detailer.
    b.  An SRB approval for all CT, IS, IT, and ITS ratings will be 
contingent upon member having a current single scope background investigation
(SSBI), an active SSBI or recent submission of an SSBI package.  Commands
must verify the member has a current SSBI, active SSBI, or has submitted an
SSBI package and make note of this in the comments section of the
precertification request.
    c.  Reenlistment bonuses for nuclear trained personnel:
        (1) Reenlistment compensation for zone 1-3 nuclear trained personnel
holding a nuclear supervisor NEC shall be provided under the enlisted
supervisor retention pay (ESRP) program in accordance with policies and
procedures detailed in reference (c) along with current ESRP multiples.
        (2) SRB entitlement for eligible nuclear-trained service members who
reenlist after applying for an officer program will be held pending selection
results.  For nuclear trained personnel only, the date on which conditional
release is approved by Nuclear Propulsion Programs (N133) per reference (d)
is considered the date of the application to an officer program.
    d.  Letters appearing with an NEC are only for administrative use.
    e.  Subsurface or surface designation does not mean an individual must be
subsurface or enlisted surface warfare specialist qualified, but it indicates
the component of the rating in which they can reasonably be expected to
serve.  Training, qualifications, and previous or projected duty assignments
at sea will indicate the appropriate rating component.  When using the force
management system and the OPINS to input an SRB precertification request, use
the rating (with appropriate suffix designation/NEC) as specified in this
NAVADMIN.  For example, a surface electronics technician with no NEC would
submit 'ETSW' on precertification for rating.
    f.  Subsurface electronics technician 14XXA identifies all subsurface
electronics technician communications Sailors who hold NECs beginning with

14.  Subsurface electronics technician navigation 14XXB identifies subsurface
electronics technician navigation Sailors and includes all subsurface
electronics technician navigation NECs beginning with 14.
    g.  NEC 0000 (commonly referred to as quad zero) is listed here to
establish that Sailors in these ratings/career fields can hold any or no NEC
and still be qualified for the SRB provided they meet all other applicable
non-NEC related criteria.
    h.  E-3 to E-6 personnel only.
    i.  E-4 to E-6 personnel only.

7.  Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Guidance.  Sailors assigned to LCS platforms
or with orders to an LCS platform who possess multiple NECs specifically
required for LCS assignment are authorized to reenlist for the most lucrative
SRB-eligible NEC, regardless of assigned rating.

8.  Reenlistment Opportunity:
    a.  Sailors serving in tier one skills are eligible to reenlist any time
within the same fiscal year of their expiration of active obligated service
(EAOS).
    b.  Sailors serving in a tier two or three skill must reenlist within 180
days of their EAOS and are not constrained by the fiscal year.  This policy
expires on 1 October 2016, after which Sailors in this category must reenlist
within 90 days and in the same fiscal year as their EAOS.
    c.  Sailors serving in a tier two or three skill and eligible for combat
zone tax exclusion (CZTE) are authorized to reenlist anytime within the same
fiscal year as their EAOS.  These Sailors, along with CCC must annotate in
the remarks section of the precertification request whether they are
currently CZTE eligible or serving in a qualified hazardous duty area.  A
condition of approval of their precertification request is that the Sailors
reenlistment occurs in a month during which CZTE qualification applies.
    d.  Sailors serving in tier two or tier three SRB skills who received an
early promote in block 45 of their most recent regular periodic evaluation
will be allowed to reenlist early any time within the fiscal year of their
EAOS.  No transfer, concurrent, or special evaluations will apply.  Sailors
advanced within the 12 months prior to their EAOS will be allowed to
substitute the last regular periodic evaluation in their previous paygrade.
Personnel must e-mail a signed copy of the evaluation to PERS-81 once their
precertification has been submitted.  This requirement is only for those that
fall under the provisions of this paragraph.

9.  SRB Precertification Requirements:
    a.  Career Waypoints - Reenlistment (C-WAY-REEN):  Commands are
authorized to submit SRB reenlistment requests prior to a member receiving a
C-WAY-REEN quota; however, the C-WAY-REEN quota request must have been
submitted and the SRB request will not be processed until the member has
received C-WAY-REEN confirmation.  SRB requests without C-WAY-REEN approval
will still be rejected in the OPINS to keep the command informed of potential
SRB approval issues.  Once a member has an approved C-WAY-REEN quota, the
command should contact PERS-81 to clear any rejections.
    b.  Commands are required to submit SRB reenlistment requests to PERS-81
via OPINS or NSIPS 35-120 days in advance of the Sailors requested
reenlistment date.  Requests submitted less than 35 days prior to the
requested reenlistment date will be rejected; however, commands may contact
PERS-81 for waiver eligibility and procedures.  Sailors must have approved
precertification before reenlisting.  The servicing personnel office is
responsible for verifying the reenlistment, posting the contract, releasing
the first payment, and verifying the master military pay account.
    c.  Sailors with approved precertification who do not reenlist on the
date or for the term specified in the precertification message must have
their command contact PERS-81 to initiate a reenlistment cancellation to
avoid placing Sailors in an overpaid status.
    d.  To validate an inoperative extension of enlistment and expedite
processing of an SRB request, include the following information in the
remarks paragraph of the request:  term, narrative reason, authority, and
execution date of all inoperative extensions.  Failure to verify extension
will cause processing delays and may result in rejection of the request or an
approval at a lower amount.
    e.  Sailors must obtain an approval for extension from PERS-81 in order
to minimize the potential for loss of SRB eligibility.
    f.  For FTS SRB reenlistment requests use on of the below listed type
codes:
        (1) CODE 1RR, Immediate Reenlistment for FTS SRB.
        (2) CODE 1RB, Broken Service Reenlistment for FTS SRB.
        (3) CODE 1RC, Obligated Service to Train and Reenlist for FTS SRB.

10.  NEC-Specific SRB and Lateral Conversions.  Acceptance of an NEC-specific
SRB contract indicates an agreement between the Sailor and the Navy to use
skills attributed to the NEC during the Sailors enlistment to meet fleet
readiness requirements.  In subsequent tours, a Sailor must be willing to be
detailed during the normal projected rotation date window to an available
billet within the SRB contracted NEC, consistent with sea-shore flow
requirements.  Lateral conversions must follow reference (e), paragraph 12d.
Lateral conversion requests will normally not be processed more than nine
months before the EAOS.  Conversions to a rate with a lower award level
normally will not be approved.  Personnel in a closed-loop NEC can reenlist
by the NEC only.

11.  Obligated Service to Train (OTT).  See reference (e), paragraph 12e, for
OTT guidance.  Requests are to be submitted to PERS-81 extension desk via
e-mail.  A copy of the authorization message should be retained by the Sailor
until the SRB reenlistment on graduation day from the course of instruction.
Use code 1CC (1RC for FTS) for OTT SRB request in OPINS or NSIPS.

12.  Inoperative Extensions Policy.  In keeping with Department of Defense
(DoD) policy, personnel who accepted an enlistment bonus for extended
enlistment (EBEE), as reflected on their Enlistment Guarantee (NAVCRUIT
1133/52 (EG, NAT or PACT)), are not authorized to use this inoperative
extension time in the SRB calculation.  Sailors who have inoperative
extension time through a five-year obligation or six-year obligation program,
or as authorized in NAVADMIN 007/09, may continue to have up to 24 months of
inoperative extension time count towards the SRB calculation provided the
reenlistment results in a new EAOS that is at least 24 months day-for-day
past the current extended EAOS.  This calculation is performed automatically
by PERS-81.  Local commands are not authorized to cancel or change extensions
for the purpose of immediate SRB reenlistments.  Commands must verify and
annotate on the precertification request whether any inoperative extension
time noted is part of an EBEE contract.

13.  Repayment.  Repayment policy is governed by section 373 of Title 37,
U.S. Code, DoD Financial Management Regulation Volume 7A (FMR) Chapter 2, and
reference (e), which collectively determine when repayment of the unearned
portion of a bonus is required, not required but left to secretarial
discretion, or prohibited.  Section 373 of Title 37, U.S. Code requires
repayment with certain exceptions.  As a general rule, repayment of any
unearned portion of a bonus will be sought.

14.  To ensure all requirements and timelines are met, visit the following
SRB page of the NPC website: http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-
npc/career/payandbenefits/N130/pages/N130D.aspx.

15.  Point of contact for a Sailor who has reenlisted and has not received
their SRB payment, or has questions concerning the taxation of their SRB and
annual installments, is the Sailors servicing pay office or personnel
support detachment.  SRB tax information is also discussed in DoD FMR,
Chapter 44, Table 44-1, Rule 7.  The point of contact for a Sailor with
questions regarding the SRB program or any information on their PERS on-line
account is their CCC.  For technical questions or clarification, CCCs, not
individual Sailors, are encouraged to contact MMNCM(SS) James Lucky (PERS-81)
at (901) 874-3215/DSN 882, fax at (901) 874-2623/DSN 882, or via e-mail at
james.lucky1(at)navy.mil or Mr. Francisco Palomo at (901) 874-3915/DSN 882 or
via e-mail at francisco.palomo(at)navy.mil, or the SRB Help Desk at
(901) 874-2526/DSN 882.

16.  We will continue to assess retention behavior and adjust SRB award
levels accordingly.

17.  This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or canceled,
whichever comes first.
