  2. NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – The Navy is still working on a plan to dispose of the world’s first nuclear powered aircraft carrier and they are asking for your input this week. https://wtkr.com/2019/06/15/navy-continues-to-work-on-plan-to-dispose-of-worlds-first-nuclear-powered-aircraft-carrier/
  3. Yesterday
  4. It does happen where you can get transferred but it usually depends on manning.
  5. I’m hoping for August 2nd for AD! I will have checked in. Then if I didn’t make it, I can go on house hunting, and cry in my Cheerios or Margaritas. Someone mentioned previously about being transferred right away. What are the chances? Who determines who stays and who goes?
  6. I would love to see how many pages we get to by the time results come out for both reserve and active. I know before it has gotten up almost to the mid 100s. I’m guessing active quotas will be out by first week of July before the 4th.
  7. Or how about the guy who has a hook up such as Bill whose wife knows the dog groomer of the Admiral's Aunt who happens to know where in the chain the Chief's results are at?
  8. Last week
  9. I figured as much but was worth seeing if anybody here had any hookups appreciate it!
  10. OH MAN! You’d have better luck active! I think we’ve averaged around 27% since it dropped from 40% in FY14.
  11. How about all the posts with the rumor mill about the date of result release? That’s when the pages really ramp up!
  12. I’m no YN, but they usually tell you that stuff takes awhile to hit your record, sorry for the bad news. I feel that pain though, last year I was selected as USSOUTHCOM’s COCOM of the Year the Friday prior to the board convening. It’s a long shot, but maybe someone here has a PERS contact that can try to push the eval. Never hurts to ask around. Good Luck!
  13. Good morning everybody, Long time reader first time poster. I signed a transfer eval today and I was curious if I had enough time to get into ompf before the ad board convened or if anybody had a resource to get it expedited. Only reason I’m interested is because I just won a big navy award for 2018 instructor of the year but it’s not documented anywhere since I was just selected this week. Thank you
  14. It’s funny to go back and look at last years forum and we are right about the same area. I think about 1 page behind on last years pace
  15. WASHINGTON — After several bases suffered devastating effects from extreme weather last year, a government report released Wednesday found that the military has not consistently assessed weather risks or incorporated climate change projections into its construction projects. https://www.stripes.com/not-all-bases-factoring-extreme-weather-climate-change-into-planning-gao-says-1.585850
  16. Looking mighty lean for OSC again....(roll eyes here)
  17. Normally after the quotas come out is also when their will go from 10 pages to 60 pages in a week on here
  18. It’s crazy (and yes I used to be one) all the complaining that happens for the E4-E6 results. Waiting 2-2 1/2 months is a lifetime to them. I then explain to them that we wait 2 months just to find out if we have to wait almost 5 more. That month after quotas come out is a rough one. Happy waiting everyone and best of luck.
  19. Here’s something the public didn’t know until today: If one of the U.S. military’s new F-35 stealth fighters has to climb at a steep angle in order to dodge an enemy attack, design flaws mean the plane might suddenly tumble out of control and crash. Also, some versions of the F-35 can’t accelerate to supersonic speed without melting their own tails or shedding the expensive coating that helps to give the planes their radar-evading qualities. https://www.thedailybeast.com/america-is-stuck-with-a-dollar400-billion-stealth-fighter-that-cant-fight
  20. That is very true, I think most feel the same way that I do is that once quotas are out that the mind games really start to kick in. I always try not to think about it even after then since it is still a month or so away but we all know that it is hard to do.
  21. At least till quotas come out in 12 days
  22. I hope that every one is having a good morning and are starting to gear up for what seems like is going to be a long month and a half till the results come out. I hope that everyone got their LTBs in.
  23. FORT SHAFTER, Hawaii — The senior enlisted sailor serving aboard the fast-attack submarine USS Jefferson City has been relieved as chief of the boat due to misconduct, the Navy said Friday. Master Chief Machinist Mate (Auxiliary) Mark Szymanski was relieved Wednesday by Cmdr. Steven Dawley after completion of an investigation and has been reassigned to Naval Submarine Support Command, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. He has been replaced by Master Chief Sonar Technician (Submarine) Daryl Green, the Navy said. https://www.stripes.com/news/pacific/chief-of-boat-on-hawaii-based-attack-sub-relieved-for-sharing-prescription-meds-1.585145
  24. WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy has taken another step forward to improve the quality of life of service members and their families as well as better address housing concerns now and into the future. A central housing electronic data warehouse that will provide consistent oversight of the Navy’s Private Partner Venture (PPV) and government housing programs is currently in development and expected to be up and running by the end of September 2019. “In keeping with our policy of transparency, the Navy has full access to the privatized housing partners’ maintenance databases,” said Cmdr. Benjamin Turner. “Now with a centralized database, the Navy can better monitor, validate and inquire about specific issues.” Turner, who is assigned to Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), is an asset management liaison officer to Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC), which oversees the Navy’s housing program. The system will automatically pull and compile maintenance records from all managing members of Navy PPV housing. The Navy currently gathers the information through a manual download and upload, which can take time to generate reports. “This new system will help provide the Navy with real-time and detailed reports of maintenance requests submitted by our Sailors and families and the partners’ progress to address those requests at our fingertips,” said Greg Wright, housing director for CNIC. Working with the housing partners, the Navy is standardizing the work descriptions and categories used within the maintenance management programs to ensure the data noted in the reports are consistent. Clear guidance on what is a health issue and safety issue will provide leaders a better understanding of the issues at each location, Turner said. “At the end of the day, we want our warfighters and families to live in quality homes that meet all health and safety standards,” Wright added. “This system will help us do just that.” In addition to tracking the timeliness of work orders, the housing partners are providing weekly maintenance and customer satisfaction reports to Housing Service Centers (HSC) and installation commanding officers. Navy leaders are able to increase their Sailor and family advocacy by identifying and addressing negative trends in customer service quickly, which was a common issue identified during recent town halls and home visits. The second phase of the database, which is also expected to launch in late September, will include housing information for Navy-owned family and unaccompanied housing. If you have issues with privatized housing, you can contact Navy housing headquarters at NavyHousingHQ@navy.mil. Those interested in learning more about the PPV housing options can contact their local HSC. HSC contact information is available at http://www.cnic.navy.mil/ContactHousing.

This NAVADMIN announces revised Selective Reenlistment Bonus (SRB) award levels and reenlistment policy for Active Component (AC) and Full-Time Support (FTS), superseding reference (a). Due to the high number of SRB takers in Fiscal Year 2019 to date, many skills are approaching or have already met their SRB quotas. This NAVADMIN updates the SRB program by decreasing award levels for 88 skills in 20 ratings and removing award levels for 14 skills in 10 ratings. Additionally, for administrative purposes, this NAVADMIN also lists 102 skills in 34 ratings that were previously closed via the Navy Personnel Command (NPC) website when those skills met their SRB quotas. Over the past several years, the Navy has made a concerted effort to increase the agility of the SRB program by publishing more frequent updates. This message is a continuation of that effort, with an ultimate goal of making the SRB program even more agile by publishing all award level changes via MyNavy Portal (MNP) at https://www.mnp.navy.mil/group/pay-and- benefits, then click on the *SRB* tab. Until that change is made, Navy will continue to announce award level increases and decreases via NAVADMIN and close skills that reach their quota via the NPC website. 2. Increased award levels are effective immediately and decreased levels are effective 30 days after the release of this NAVADMIN. Award level closures reflected in this NAVADMIN that previously occurred are administrative in nature and are not subject to the 30- day grace period afforded to skills being reduced via the release of this NAVADMIN. Annual bonus amounts may not exceed $30K per 12 months of additional obligated service as stated in reference (b). Additional bonus calculation information can be found via MNP. 3. Reenlistment requests for the listed SRB award levels will be approved based on quota availability. SRB reenlistment requests for FTS are currently not being accepted. SRB reenlistment requests for AC must be submitted to the Community Management Support Branch (BUPERS-328) via Officer Personnel Information System (OPINS) or Navy Standard Integrated Personnel System (NSIPS) 35 to 120-days in advance of the requested reenlistment date for the Sailor. 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. For information on the current list of SRB eligible ratings/skills based on available quotas and to ensure all requirements and timelines are met, visit MNP. Addendums to the current award message posted on this site provide notification of skill closures and supersede the current NAVADMIN. For commands with limited internet access, Command Career Counselors (CCC) should contact BUPERS-328 directly for the latest updates. 4. AC SRB award levels are as follows (Note: a * indicates a level located in other sections of paragraph 4, a - indicates a reduction from previous award level, a + indicates an increase from previous award level, a ^ indicates a skill previously closed via the NPC website): a.

Notes (1) Navy Enlisted Classification (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. (2) 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 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 *ET(SW)* on precertification for rating. (3) An SRB approval for all CT, IS, IT and ITS ratings will be contingent upon the Sailor having a current Single Scope Background Investigation (SSBI) or Tier 5 investigation, an active SSBI/Tier 5 or recent submission of an SSBI/Tier 5 package. Commands must verify the Sailor has a current SSBI/Tier 5, active SSBI/Tier 5 or has submitted an SSBI/Tier 5 package and make a note of this in the comments section of the precertification request. (4) E-3 to E-6 Sailors only. Sailors selected for E-7 advancement are not eligible for SRB. (5) X is used as a placeholder to identify where multiple NECs within a rating are eligible for a stated award level. Sailors in the specified rating that hold an NEC that includes the numbers preceding X are eligible for SRB. For example, SO O9XA includes SO O91A, and SO O92A or T1XB includes all subsurface Electronics Technician navigation NECs contained in T1XA series. (6) Reenlistment bonuses for nuclear-trained Sailors. (a) Reenlistment compensation for zones 1 through 3 nuclear- trained Sailors holding a nuclear supervisor NEC shall be provided under the Enlisted Supervisor Retention Pay (ESRP) program in line with policies and procedures detailed in reference (c) along with current ESRP multiples. (b) SRB entitlement for eligible nuclear-trained Sailors who reenlist after applying for an officer program will be held pending selection results. For nuclear-trained Sailors only, the date on which conditional release is approved by Nuclear Propulsion Program Manager (OPNAV N133) as directed in reference (d) is considered the date of the application to an officer program with the exception of Seaman to Admiral 21 nuclear Option (STA-21(N)) and Limited Duty Officer (LDO). For STA-21(N) and LDO, the application deadline is considered the suspense date. (7) E-4 to E-6 Sailors only. Sailors selected for E-7 advancement are not eligible for SRB. (8) E-3 to E-5 Sailors only. Sailors selected for E-6 advancement are not eligible for SRB. (9) FCA 0000 SRB eligibility contingent upon graduation of an FCA NEC awarding *C* school. (10) Sailors holding a CTI NEC must be differentiated by the Enlisted Manning Code (EMC). Only Sailors having one of the following NECs and assigned in the respective EMC are eligible for SRB: (a) NEC: 9SPA, EMC: B515 (b) NEC: 813A/9RUS, EMC: B516 (c) NEC: 9ARB/9PES, EMC: B511 (d) NEC: 9CMN, EMC: B512 (11) Sailors are eligible for a +0.5 pay for performance SRB kicker contingent upon meeting all requirements specified in paragraph 6 below. (12) For submarine Sailors (SS) only. 5. Sailors must reenlist within 180-days of their end of active obligated service (EAOS), except in the following cases: a. Nuclear-trained Sailors. b. Sailors who must obligate service (OBLISERV) to execute a permanent change of station move will be allowed to reenlist early any time within 1 Calendar Year of the detachment month, but not later than the date of detachment from the last intermediate duty station. c. Combat zone tax exclusion and Early Promote (EP) Sailors who submitted SRB requests on or before the release of NAVADMIN 302/18, Selective Reenlistment Bonus Update December 2018 and the Implementation of a Pay for Performance Pilot, will be grandfathered under paragraph 5 of reference (e). 6. Pay for performance is a Sailor 2025 initiative and is being piloted as part of a talent management process improvement effort. Eligibility and submission requirements are as follows: a. To be eligible for the pay for performance SRB Pilot Sailors must: (1) Be in the EM, EN, GSM, MM(SW), DC, HT or MR rating. (2) Have received two EPs in block 45 of their three most recent regular (Block 8) periodic evaluations (Block 10). No transfer, concurrent or special evaluations will apply. (3) Have not received Non-Judicial Punishment within the last 3 years. (4) Have not failed any part of the physical fitness assessment in the last 3 years. b. Commands must submit a NAVPERS 1306/7, Enlisted Personnel Action Request, requesting the SRB kicker, signed copies of the evaluations of the Sailor and a printout of their physical readiness information management system data to BUPERS-328 once their precertification has been submitted. This requirement is only for those that fall under the provisions of this paragraph. c. Award ceiling cap values under $100,000 will be raised by $5,000 for Sailors eligible for the performance kicker. For example: EN Zone A award ceiling will be raised from $30,000 to $35,000 for Sailors who qualify for the performance kicker. Award ceiling caps will not be adjusted over $100,000 under these provisions. 7. SRB Submission Requirements a. Commands are required to submit SRB reenlistment requests to BUPERS-328 via OPINS or NSIPS 35 to 120 days in advance of the requested reenlistment date of the Sailor. Requests submitted less than 35 days prior to the requested reenlistment date will be rejected. However, commands may contact BUPERS-328 for waiver eligibility and procedures. Sailors must have an approved SRB request 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. Commands shall immediately notify the Military Pay and Compensation Branch (OPNAV N130) when a Sailor fails to maintain eligibility in the skill for which SRB was paid (e.g., loss of security clearance, medical disqualification, loss of eligible NEC, misconduct) or when a Sailor has an approved separation with a remaining SRB contract obligation. b. Career Waypoints - Reenlistment (C-WAY-REEN). Commands are authorized to submit SRB reenlistment requests prior to a Sailor receiving a C-WAY-REEN quota. However, the C-WAY-REEN quota request must be submitted. In these cases, the SRB request will not be processed until the Sailor has received C-WAY-REEN confirmation. SRB requests without C-WAY-REEN quota approval will be rejected in OPINS to keep the command informed of potential SRB approval issues. Once a Sailor has an approved C-WAY-REEN quota, the command should contact BUPERS-328 to clear any rejections. Failure to submit an SRB reenlistment request within the required 35 to 120 day submission window due to awaiting a C-WAY-REEN quota does not meet eligibility requirements for a 35 day submission waiver. c. Sailors with approved SRB requests who do not reenlist on the date or for the term specified in the precertification message must have their command contact BUPERS-328 to initiate a reenlistment cancelation 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 BUPERS- 328 in order to minimize the potential for loss of SRB eligibility. 8. 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 enlistment of the Sailor 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 (f), subparagraph 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. 9. Reference (f), paragraph 12e, provides OBLISERV to Train (OTT) guidance. Requests are to be submitted to BUPERS-328 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 for OTT SRB request in OPINS or NSIPS. Additionally, OBLISERV requirements for schools are provided in reference (g). OBLISERV will be determined based on the course length as provided in paragraph 3b of reference (g). Paragraph 3c(1) no longer applies. 10. In keeping with Department of Defense (DoD) policy, Sailors who accepted an enlistment bonus for extended enlistment (EBEE), as reflected on their Enlisted Bonus Payment Checklist (NAVCRUIT 1133/52, Enlistment Guarantees, New Accession Training Program Enlistment Guarantee or Professional Apprenticeship Career Track Program Enlistment Guarantees), are not authorized to use this inoperative extension time in the SRB calculation. Sailors who have inoperative extension time through a 5-year obligation or 6- year obligation program 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 BUPERS-328. 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. 11. Repayment policy is governed by section 373 of Title 37, U.S. Code, DoD Financial Management Regulation (FMR) Chapter 2, Volume 7A and reference (f), which collectively determines when repayment of the unearned portion of a bonus is required or 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. 12. The 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 servicing pay office or personnel support detachment of the Sailor. SRB tax information is also discussed in DoD FMR, Volume 7A, 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 on- line personnel account is their CCC. For technical questions or clarification, CCCs, not individual Sailors, are encouraged to contact BUPERS-328 at (901) 874-3215 or (901) 874-3915/DSN 882 or via e-mail at mill_incen_pays(at)navy.mil or contact the SRB Help Desk at (901) 874- 2526/DSN 882. 13. We will continue to assess retention behavior and adjust SRB award levels accordingly. 14. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or canceled, whichever comes first. 15.

  26. Does anyone have an inside bead on when the results are going to be released. I saw the quotas were released on May 20th. I was under the impression that information was released shortly before the results were. I am a bit confused and anxious about it. AG1 Clark
  27. Outstanding! Exactly what we as Chief's are looking for our deck plate leaders to be doing!
  28. I completely understand the headache of trying to update the NSIPS documents in OMPF. When we went to an online system, I had no idea what NSIPS was about past eLeave. I never asked the right questions when I first started putting together LTBs, my fault. When one of my leaders was able to completely explain everything to me, I was right on top of re-enlistment. I worked with admin, and was able to quickly update everything, but still had to wait three years to have everything placed in OMPF. My admin had sent everything into PSD each of those three years, well ahead of exam results, but nothing was ever uploaded. This past year YN1 explained to me that it was up to PSD to process paperwork for individuals who weren’t reenlisting. Something regarding major degradation between what showed in OMPF vs. what is in NSIPS would be needed before they would consider pushing your paperwork. I don’t tell my Sailors to shorten their reenlistments, but I have told them of my experiences and have urged them to stay on top of these things.
