REF/C/MSG/CNO WASHINGTON DC/N1/071311ZJUL14//
NARR/REF A IS OPNAVINST 1160.6B, SPECIAL DUTY ASSIGNMENT PAY (SDAP) PROGRAM.  
REF B IS DOD INSTRUCTION 1304.27, AWARD AND ADMINISTRATION OF SPECIAL DUTY 
ASSIGNMENT PAY.  REF C IS NAVADMIN 156/14, SPECIAL DUTY ASSIGNMENT PAY.//

RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the annual Special Duty Assignment Pay 
(SDAP) recertification process for FY-16 and clarifies retroactive payments 
and procedures.  Per references (a) and (b), commanding officers (CO) are 
required to annually review and certify each Sailors entitlement to SDAP.  
This certification is to verify every Sailor who is assigned to an eligible 
billet remains qualified to fill the billet and is receiving the correct 
SDAP.  Certification shall commence upon the release of this NAVADMIN and 
continue through 31 August 2016.  Per reference (a), commands that do not 
complete the required certification by 31 August 2016 will have their Sailors 
SDAP terminated retroactive to 1 June 2016.

2.  To verify if a Sailor is eligible and receiving the correct level of 
SDAP, a complete list of authorized skills and pay amounts can be found at:  
http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-
npc/career/enlistedcareeradmin/Pages/SRB.aspx.

3.  Follow these procedures to certify the special pay (SP) section of the 
Enlisted Distribution and Verification Report (EDVR):
    a.  Obtain and print the SP section of the EDVR.  The SP section only 
pulls those Sailors that are currently drawing SDAP.
        (1) Although the EDVR has been replaced by Billet Based Distribution, 
the EDVR Special Pay (SP) section will be reproduced in support of the FY-16 
SDAP Recertification process.
        (2) The command EDVR may be obtained by contacting the EDVR help desk 
at mill_edvr_help(at)navy.mil.
        (3) EDVR requesters are to include their primary unit identification 
code (UIC) in the subject line and any required subordinate UICs in the email 
body.  EDVR data will be processed and returned via the AMRDEC Safe Access 
File Exchange process which sends an email from "No-Reply(at)amrdec.army.mil" 
with specific instructions on how to access the file.
        (4) All command Career Management System-Interactive
Detailing (CMS-ID) users with the activity manning manager (AMM) role will 
automatically be granted access to their EDVR SP section. Requester must also 
have CMS-ID AMM access to all subordinate UICs requested.  Commands with no 
AMM will need to submit a CMS-ID AMM access request as outlined on the Navy 
Personnel Command (NPC) web site http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-
npc/enlisted/cmsid/Pages/default2.aspx.
    b.  Verify your command as a whole and make changes as follows:
        (1) Add all Sailors who are eligible for SDAP, but not listed in the 
SP section of the EDVR.  To add, simply handwrite or type the name, rate, 
effective date, and level on the bottom of the SP section of the EDVR.  If 
there is not enough space you can do one of two things:
            (a) Attach a list on command letterhead; or
            (b) Make a copy of the top portion of the SP section and use that 
as a secondary page for your additions.
        (2) Draw a line through any Sailor who has not reported and are on 
the SP section as a prospective gain.  These Sailors are currently drawing 
SDAP at their current command and will be certified by that UIC.
        (3) Draw a line through any Sailor who is no longer eligible and put 
a brief description as to why they are no longer eligible 
(transfer/separation/loss of Navy Enlisted Classifications).
        (4) Verify levels per reference (c), and draw a line through listed 
level and replace with new level as required.
        (5) The COs original signature must be on each page of the SP section 
accompanied by the following statement:  "After review, I certify that all 
required additions and changes have been annotated, actions required to 
start, stop or increase has been processed via Personnel Support Detachment 
prior to submission of recertification and all Sailors at this command are 
receiving the correct SDAP entitlement."  This statement can be handwritten, 
typed, or put on with a label.  A cover letter is not required, and only 
recommended if the command needs more space for Sailors added.
        (6) List a point of contact, in the top right hand corner of the 
first page of the SP section.
        (7) Send the SP section via encrypted e-mail to PSC(SW/EXW/AW) 
Stannie Gregoire at stannie.gregoire(at)navy.mil.  If you are having trouble 
sending encrypted e-mail, send an e-mail to PSC(SW/EXW/AW) Gregoire so you 
can be added to the contact list.  E- mail subject line should read:  
Encryption request for UIC, POC: Name and phone number and/or e-mail address.  
E-mail is the preferred method, but if you need to send via regular mail, 
please send to:

    Navy Personnel Command
    ATTN: PSC Stannie Gregoire (PERS-81)
    5720 Integrity Drive
    Millington, TN 38055-0130

        (8) E-mail subject line must contain:  UIC, POC:  rate, name, and 
phone number.
        (9) SDAP recertifications do not go to PSD, only the required changes 
need to be submitted to PSD via the transaction online processing system.

4.  Each command is responsible for ensuring updates are made to the Sailors 
record through the commands servicing PSD.  No changes will be made by NPC as 
part of the annual recertification process.  If changes are required by 
Enlisted Career Administration Department (PERS-81), then send via separate 
correspondence with Sailors name in subject line of the e-mail.

5.  Commands can check the status of their SDAP recertification at
http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-
npc/career/enlistedcareeradmin/Pages/SRB.aspx.  Commands are strongly 
encouraged to use this site to ensure all subordinate commands have completed 
the recertification.  Please allow 5 to 10 days after submission to be 
updated on the webpage.

6.  Commands and Sailors will have the ability to receive back pay within the 
current fiscal year (FY).  PSD may start a Sailors SDAP up to 8 months 
retroactive to date of the command certification letter, but only within the 
same FY.  SDAP certifications that are between 8 months and 1 year past the 
SDAP effective start date, and within the current FY, can be processed by 
PERS-81 and will require a letter signed by the commands immediate superior 
in command explaining why the members SDAP was not processed in a timely 
manner.  All other SDAP retroactive pay issues should be submitted via a 
request through the Board for Corrections of Naval Records. Payments may 
cross the FY for Sailors who report to a command in August or September, but 
whose command certification is not fully routed until October or November.

7.  Point of contact is PSC(SW/EXW/AW) Stannie Gregoire, PERS-813, at 
(901)874-3260/DSN 882 or via e-mail at stannie.gregoire(at)navy.mil.

8.  This message will remain in effect until superseded or 1 October 2016, 
whichever occurs first.

9.  Released by Vice Admiral W. F. Moran, N1.//
