If you haven't started reviewing your OMPF and preparing a package for the board, I recommend getting ahead of the curve. Of course, if your record is on point, odds are you won't need to submit a package.

Here's what I used to review my record : http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-npc/career/toolbox/Documents/PlainTalk_Personnel_Record_Review_MAY2012.pdf

It comes straight from Navy Personnel Command.  I hope it helps, I recommend starting early.

Just a thought...

Does the board look on FLTMPS as well to check your record?

No, let only look at your OMPF and PSR. They can look at your PRIMS, but after the board to ensure you don't have failures that would put you in a hold status.

I was talking to a master chief who went to the board, and he was telling me how the board process can be very routine. Looking though each package 1 by 1 and finding many similarities in every other sailors package. There is alot of packages with documented SSP then most can assume. And then all of the sudden out of no where  you hear, "hey I got one"!. Does anyone here know what they look for to be that, "I got one" candidate? From what is posted on here seems like most FCPOs got the major checks in the block from PPME to major command collaterals and all in between. What makes it stand out?

how you break out amongst your peers, your average compared to your Reporting Seniors, if it is above or equal to it on a good basis. your write ups and how your command sells you to the board and if you are producing the numbers with you collateral duties and most important, being a leader to your sailors. remember that this is not the Navy of old and that you have to do things out side of the Navy as well.

I kinda' heard different.

There can't be a lot of packages with SSP, otherwise there wouldn't be anything superior to choose. From what I've heard more than once, it's more of a vetting process of selecting only the best packages. 

And I'm not 100% sure of the selection process but I'm sure that many people have a misconception of what Sustained Superior Performance is. The key still is SSP (above others) so when someones says "I have SSP nail", I say, only the board with those packages currently in the room will be able to determine that.

My 2 cents worth... :)

Thanks for the info guys! I'm pretty junior to this. But I have been reading up on this forum and learning a lot from others.  It's complicating yet rewarding when trying to figure out my package. Good luck to all! 1st time up here.

it will get easier when submitting your package the more info that you get but just remember that if it is in your record and the board can see it already then don't send it in. start now looking at your record cause you have more than enough time to get it fixed before the board convenes. good luck to you

Question to the Chiefs who view this page...I am an IT1 in the Reserves serving with a unit filling a BM1 billet. The only time I work in my rate in the Reserves has been while I was mobilized in 2010 and 2013. Will this have a negative effect at the board?

Doubt it. Precepts state pretty clearly that Sailors have non-traditional career paths sometimes. As long as you're performing I think you'll be fine. Are you using any of the plethora of programs available from the Navy (or even in the civilian world) to demonstrate your mastery of the IT rating (Collateral Duties, COOL, College, Correspondence Courses, etc.)?

Good Morning,

I am trying to figure out the steps to take for a missing letter of extensions from my last ship. I left there in March of 2013. Checked into my shore duty command April of 2013. My original copy of my LOE was lost during my next eval submission. Can I make another LOE and submit or does it have to be from the original command?

Unless something changed this year I thought they did away with the list.  You have to check your profile sheet to know.

I think they did as well, but substitute "results" for "list" and that's more the point of the guess.

I completed the Statement in Lieu of Missing Report from BUPERINST 1610.10 exhibit 17-4 and submitted it to PERS-32 and it is in my OMPF now. My continuity report does not and will not ever update the gap but the board can see it in my record and the actions I took to correct it. Hope that helps.

@SUBLANT thanks for the reply I will submit the statement.

So one weird thing happened in my OMPF (mine).  When I logged in to check my record, it looks like someone uploaded updated versions of my member data summary, award record, history of assignments, and training and qual history.  Would just like to verify if this is routine as it is new to me.  My PSD definitely did not upload it.  

The reason I said it was weird was those four parts of my record are the ones I sent to the board last time, and they all have a (-) tac on their document ID number.  Is this normal?  Thanks a bunch!

Have you reenlisted or transferred since last year? Have you asked admin if they did it?

You may be able to reach out to them and see if they still have it on record by any chance. If they don't, you may be able to reach out to whoever the senior rater was and ask him to sign the LOE for you. Last case scenario (and I did this, although it was just a one day gap 5 years prior), was to have my current command submit the correction. Whatever you do, try to get it done prior to submitting your package. Your ultimate goal is to submit no corrections to your record and only additions. 

Fyi, I was selected two years ago, I just haven't changed my screen name. I have to post a few more times before they let me lol.

I recently checked into my command and i got debriefed by the CO who sat on my board. He told me i had everything I needed, MOVSM, degree, good evals, just a good record. He said what hurt me was my conversion from OS to PS. He said the board felt like i needed to be a PS1 longer cuz i only been one for 4 years (3 PS evals) but if i was a YN i would have made it. He said just sustain (sustained superior performance) and mentioned that quotas were low and it was hard to take records out and he remembered mine because i was a PG.  He told me tko eep it up, go for UPC and other collaterals and be active in CPO 365 and document involvement on the eval. I put in a request chit already for UPC, got that info from this forum, thanks everyone. Keep charging and making sailors and yourself better!

I personally know a PS who was selected last cycle that was in his rate less than 4 years, He was a GM prior.  So although you were handicapped, it's not impossible. Keep stroking and hopefully this is your year.

I know one too, i really thought i had it last year it was very humbling, especially after everyone tells you you are going to make it. This year i am much more even keeled, taking care of my sailors amd taking care of myself as well, hopefully i will get the call this year!

What are some great examples of SSP? My idea of SSP is if you have the opportunity to be in a leadership position take it and run with it. You can be the greatest leader in the world but if it is not documented the board will not see that. I must say I have held WCS, and ALPO. Being in the LPO position onboard a Carrier is a true test of your leadership. I learn something new everyday, and feel that I am already acting in the capacity of the Chief. My current chief is very junior and still trying to come into his own. That goes to show you that not holding leadership positions prior to making chief can make it difficult to lead. I ensure that I am there to support him by stepping in where needed. 

One thing that I do not like is both Chiefs and Officers come to me about where my chief lacks. That should be discussed with him to guide him, not the LPO. My Dept Head went as far as to say he wants me to be the Chief, I was a little taken back. However, I did not engage in dragging him in the dirt, I listened and stated that it takes time but he will find his way.

 I made First class on shore duty in Sep 2014, my first ranked eval was a P. I had a transfer EP in May 2016. Checked on board in June 2016 my first ranked eval covered a 5 month span, it was a really good write up. I am hoping that this will be time to put on those anchors.

SSP is subjective. Everyone on this forum will give you a slightly different answer.

As for acting in the capacity of the Chief, I would recommend you withhold that opinion until you put on anchors. However inept you believe your Chief to be, I have no doubts that he is there in the mess making things happen. Your eyes will open to the responsibility you don't have that you think you do after you are pinned.

Have you told your CoC that you feel that way? Have you pulled your Chief aside and thrown him the bone that people view him negatively? Not engaging in dragging him in the dirt isn't admirable if you're in the crowd watching others do it. I'm sure the people saying they want you as a Chief are right, you're probably a good dude and a great OS, but if you're going to be in this mess, I'd learn to help a shipmate out.

I hope you make it, but the biggest thing I've learned in this mess, is that if you aren't humble, you will be humiliated. If one Chief looks bad, we all look bad.
