Navy asks Congress for more authority to sidestep ‘up-or-out’ personnel system

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


As part of a broader effort to add flexibility to its personnel system, the Navy wants more of its sailors to get a chance to earn advanced educational degrees. But the service argues that in too many cases, the decision to do so carries seriously negative career implications.

A legislative proposal the Navy is discussing with Capitol Hill for potential inclusion in the 2019 Defense authorization bill is meant to let military officers take a temporary detour from their traditional career paths, then rejoin them without facing consequences for future promotions. https://federalnewsradio.com/defense-main/2018/04/navy-asks-congress-for-more-authority-to-sidestep-up-or-out-personnel-system/
