    h.  Added a requirement of official written appointments of the Office of 
the Chief of Naval Operations (OPNAV) directives screening control points

managers).  Initial appointments must be received by the OPNAV Echelon I 
directives manager (DNS-15) within 60 days of this NAVADMIN and the 
publication of references (b) and (c) (see paragraph 2.k. below).

3.  Reference (c) implements the policy set forth in reference (b). In 
addition, it prescribes uniform standards and practices; format and outline; 
appropriate word usage; proper capitalization, acronym and abbreviation usage 
rules; directives processes; and definitions; and provides guidance and 
procedures for the management, proper administration, and preparation of the 
Navy Directives Management Program.  Reference (c) is mandatory and 
applicable to the Chief of Naval Operations, and all commands, activities, 
installations, ships and stations of the U.S. Navy.

4.  References (b) and (c) may be accessed via Department of the Navy
