Navy Launches Pilot Program to Pair Senior Enlisted with Priority Billets

Recommended Posts

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- A new rating modernization initiative will provide active-duty, senior enlisted Sailors looking for their next billet the opportunity to get a jump on the process thanks to a new selection board pilot program, the Navy announced June 14.

The Fiscal Year (FY)-19 Enlisted Advancement-to-Vacancy Selection Board, announced in NAVADMIN 144/18 is a pilot program where active-duty, senior enlisted Sailors apply for specific priority billets listed in the NAVADMIN and, if selected, are temporarily advanced to the billet paygrade. This pilot will be limited to critical E8 and E9 billets only. Pending the outcome of the pilot, we expect to expand this program to other enlisted paygrades.

To be permanently advanced, Sailors must be selected for advancement via the normal advancement process. 

"This program will give motivated Sailors an opportunity to take on positions of greater responsibility, while at the same time helping the Navy to better align our senior enlisted leaders to the places we need them to be," said Capt. Rick Cheeseman, director, Career Management Department, Navy Personnel Command.

The selection board is scheduled to convene Aug. 13 and applications to the board must be postmarked no later than July 9. For Sailors to be eligible, they must meet the following criteria:

* Must meet all eligibility requirements for the regularly scheduled FY-19 Active Duty SCPO or MCPO advancement selection boards.

* Applicants must receive a favorable endorsement from their commanding officer (CO) via a NAVPERS 1306/7.

* Applicants must sign, and have their CO witness, a NAVPERS 1070/613 with the following statement: "I understand that by submitting an application for consideration by the FY-19 Enlisted Advancement-to-Vacancy Pilot Selection Board I am certifying that I am assignable to any billets for which I applied and will execute orders to those billets if directed."

* Applicants must possess any required Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) codes for the billets advertised or have the experience to obtain the NEC en-route to the billet. Specific prerequisites for each billet are outlined in the NAVADMIN.

Sailors who have submitted voluntary Fleet Reserve/retirement requests are not eligible.

A full list of available billets, board application and communication procedures can be found in the NAVADMIN at www.npc.navy.mil.

      On Monday, Feb 6, I went to the car wash on NAS Oceana. When I put 4 dollars worth of coins in the slot water started gushing out from the ceiling. I went to another stall and washed my car. After I was done I went to the N.A.S. Oceana Auto Hobby Shop to inform them of the stall and to get a refund. The individual that I talked to by the name of Paul was very rude and raised his voice when he said he did not have the coins to give me a refund. After asking for his name, he was able to find and then refunded the $4. After that I contacted the MWR office to make a complaint and am expecting a return call from the Deputy Director or Director (as of Feb 8, neither Scott George or Vincent Spagnuolo have contacted me.) Obviously it's not about the 4 dollars, my primary goal is to ensure that MWR staff are not rude to Sailors, family or vets. This is more so for the young Sailors that live in the barracks. Those are our benefits for serving in the military: Active, Reserve, Vet or family. It's odd that with the current mental health issues in the Navy, the MWR cannot get a grip on the fact that they are supposed to be there for morale, welfare and recreation. If you have any complaints about the MWR Auto Hobby Shop on N.A.S. Oceana, you can call them at the contact below. You can also contact me if you wish via the contact form. MWR Oceana - (757) 433-2560 Director: Scott George  Deputy Director: Vincent Spagnuolo

      As a Veteran, you may be eligible for certain tax benefits under the tax code. It’s important to file your taxes before this year’s April 18 deadline and be aware of the benefits that apply to you. Here’s a summary of some of the key tax benefits for military Veterans provided by accountant and tax expert Lisa Greene-Lewis of TurboTax.
