Like A Chief - Required Deadlines

Recommended Posts

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- The E7 Chief Petty Officer (CPO) Selection Board will convene June 22. Deadlines are rapidly approaching for candidates and their commands to ensure Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF) are up-to-date. 
Some files that might improve a candidate's potential to stand out during selection are not necessarily a part of the two-criterion system used for selection. According to NAVADMIN 222/14, the selection board will review the OMPF and official enlisted performance evaluation of all candidates. Because of volume, an OMPF is only updated at certain points during the course of a Sailor's career, such as change of duty station. If documents are missing from a candidate's OMPF, a candidate may submit those documents along with a cover letter, also known as a letter to the board (LBT), for review and selection. 
"Many folks forget to send the accompanying cover letter when submitting additional information for review, and this is a must when sending any supporting material for the board to look at," said Sandra Hibbard, the E7 Board team lead, Navy Personnel Command (NPC) Customer Service Center (CSC). Joint Professional Military Education (JPME), Primary Professional Military Education (PPME), college diplomas and other certifications are good examples of documents that can be sent to the board with a cover letter.
According to Hibbard, "the board received approximately 11,300 submissions last year total ... which took about 10 business days to sort through." Hibbard also said, the earlier an eligible candidate can send their board packet for consideration with a cover letter, the better.
Packages submitted to the active-duty CPO board must be received by the NPC CSC no later than June 1. Hibbard said, "Packages and accompanying LBT must originate from the individual candidate."
Along with a cover letter, each document in the package must include the member's full social security number. If sent electronically, the subject of the email should also include the board number. Candidates may not send classified documents.
Refer to NAVADMIN 222/14 for guidance and mailing information for candidates who wish to submit a package through traditional mail or encrypted e-mail. NPC encourages all candidates to use alternative means to submit packages, other than the Safe Access File Exchange program (SAFE), due to an accreditation lapse. 
The next two closest dates to keep in mind for the E7 selection timeline are: May 18 - Full Time Support (FTS) E7 selection board convenes and all eligibility requirements, to include any waivers, must have final approval prior to this date; and May 22 - active component (AC) board candidates changing ratings must be in their new rating to be considered as a candidate in the new rating.

      Four dry docks the Navy uses to overhaul nuclear submarines in Washington are temporarily closed after the service found they are at risk for earthquake damage, service officials told USNI News on Thursday. The dry docks, three at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility in Bremerton, Wash., and the delta pier at the Trident Refit Facility in Bangor, Wash., are still certified to overhaul nuclear submarines, but the Navy has decided to keep the dry docks empty pending further investigation.
