RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the solicitation of applications from highly 
qualified and motivated E-6 through E-9 Reserve Sailors for the Fiscal Year 
(FY) 2025 Navy Selected Reserve Limited Duty Officer (LDO) and Chief Warrant 
Officer (CWO) programs.  Where conflicts with reference (a) exist, this 
NAVADMIN takes precedence. 
 
2.  The FY-25 Navy Selected Reserve LDO and CWO In-Service Procurement Board 
(ISPB) will consider candidates for the following officer designators:  623X, 
626X, 628X, 629X, 633X, 641X, 649X, 653X, 711X, 712X, 713X, 715X, 717X, 718X, 
781X, 782X and 783X. Eligible Sailors are encouraged to apply for the 
designators for which they are most qualified, regardless of current 
rating.  Refer to references (a) through (c) for eligibility criteria.  NOTE: 
Current Reserve CWOs that desire to transition into the LDO community are no 
longer supported and will be disapproved if an application is received. 
 
3.  FY-25 guidance. 
     a.  Time-in-service (TIS) for the FY-25 Navy Selected Reserve LDO and 
CWO ISPB must be computed to 1 October 2024.  In line with references (a) and 
(b), TIS is synonymous with years of qualifying service toward a non-regular 
(Reserve) retirement. 
     b.  TIS eligibility is 8 to 14 years for LDO and 14 to 20 years for CWO 
applicants.  TIS waivers will be considered and adjudicated on a case-by-case 
basis by Director, Military Personnel Plans and Policy (OPNAV 
N13).  Potential applicants outside of the TIS eligibility window are 
encouraged to contact the Reserve LDO/CWO Officer Community Manager (OCM) in 
paragraph 10b of this NAVADMIN to discuss TIS waiver opportunities.  All LDO 
applicants must be able to serve at least 6 years of qualifying service and 
complete 20 years of qualifying service prior to 62 years of age.  All CWO 
applicants must be able to complete 20 years of qualifying service prior to 
reaching 62 years of age.  Applicants must also not reach or exceed high year 
tenure for their present pay grade within the calendar year the application 
is submitted.  TIS waivers for less than 8 years for LDO and less than 14 
years for CWO will not be considered.  No further exceptions to listed 
eligibility requirements in references (a) and (c) will be considered.  All 
requests for TIS waivers shall be submitted to the RC LDO/CWO OCM and PERS-92 
contacts listed below and must be received not later than 1 August 2023.  TIS 
waiver requests and Navy Selected Reserve LDO and CWO applications are two 
separate processes with their own respective deadlines.  Failure to follow 
this guidance and the timelines provided will result in a subsequent 
disapproval of the requested TIS waiver.  The TIS waiver template is 
available at https://www.mynavyhr.navy.mil/Career-Management/Community-Management/Officer/Reserve-OCM/Selected-Reservists/RC-LDO-CWO/ .   
NOTE:  The TIS waiver approval letter must also be submitted as an enclosure 
to the application. 
     c.  Contingency plan for late E-7 results, if results are not released 
prior to application deadline:  Due to the FY-24 Enlisted Selection Board 
schedule, E-6s awaiting E-7 results to apply for CWO are encouraged to apply 
and submit their application not later than 1 October 2023 with the following 
guidelines: 
     (1) Commands are directed to proceed with the application 
process for these applicants as outlined in this NAVADMIN. 
     (2) E-6s awaiting E-7 selection results must add the following statement 
at the beginning of the commanding officer's (CO) endorsement:  *Member is 
awaiting  results.* 
Commander, Navy Personnel Command (PERS-92) will set aside these 
applications until E-7 results are announced. 
     (3) E-6 evaluations due 15 November 2023 will be submitted as an 
addendum in the guidelines of this NAVADMIN.  If a Sailor is selected for E-7 
and the pinning date is after 15 November 2023 and the Sailor has already 
received an E-6 periodic evaluation, the close-out evaluation is not required 
to be submitted as an addendum. Submit the close-out evaluation as an 
addendum if an E-6 periodic was not received.  Once all E-7 results are 
announced, PERS-92 will integrate or remove those records and applications 
accordingly. 
 d.  Eligible Sailors are encouraged to apply for the designator for which 
they have extensive documented technical expertise and leadership experience 
in their enlisted service records, regardless of current rating.  However, 
special attention should be given to the guidance in Chapter 7, subparagraph 
9c of reference (a) and to the designator discrete requirements.  For the 
most current copy of the discrete requirements, refer to the instructions in 
paragraph 9. 
     e.  In line with reference (b), all LDO applicants must include a 
statement in the additional comments section (paragraph 2) of the 
application, agreeing to further service, as follows:  "I, [name], if 
selected for permanent appointment under the Navy Reserve LDO program, agree 
to accept such appointment and further agree to remain in the Ready Reserve 
for a period of 3 years after I accept such appointment." 
     f.  In line with reference (b), all CWO applicants must include a 
statement in the additional comments section (paragraph 2) of the 
application, agreeing to further service, as follows:  "I, [name], 
if selected for permanent appointment under the Navy Reserve CWO 
program, agree to accept such appointment and further agree to 
remain in the Ready Reserve for a period of 6 years after I accept 
such appointment." 
     g.  CO or Officer-in-Charge (OIC) endorsement must contain the 
following statement:  "Applicant meets all requirements outlined in 
OPNAVINST 1420.1B, OPNAVINST 1120.12A, NAVADMIN 115/23, and the physical 
fitness standards of OPNAVINST 6110.1J."  The endorsement should also clearly 
state the command and CO's/OIC's name and rank. 
 
4.  Interview appraisal boards shall be constructed and approved by the 
CO/OIC and consist of only three Reserve or Active component officers.  The 
names of the approved appraisal board members must be included in the CO/OIC 
endorsement.  To the maximum extent possible, LDOs or CWOs shall be utilized 
as board members.  The senior member of the interview panel must be a 
lieutenant commander or above. 
     a.  Every effort will be made to ensure at least one board 
member is from the designator for which the applicant is applying. 
Interview appraisals should be conducted in person if possible, but 
other methods can be utilized, including but not limited to 
Microsoft Teams or teleconference. 
     b.  Minimum grade requirements for board members are lieutenant or 
CWO3.  CWO3 panel members must have at least two years time in grade.  The 
appraisal board should, whenever possible, be comprised of officers who are 
not in the applicant's command, or at minimum, not directly in the chain of 
command. 
     c.  If it is not possible to assemble a panel of three officers, 
the interviews may be conducted separately.  Only three interview 
appraisals are required for each applicant. 
     d.  All sub-blocks contained within the "potential" section of the 
appraisal sheet (Technical Knowledge, Potential as a Career Naval Officer, 
and Comments) must be completed for all LDO and CWO candidates. 
     e.  Each appraisal shall contain the names of all three members who 
conducted the appraisal board.  Only the current version of the interviewer 
appraisal sheet will be accepted.  Follow the instructions in paragraph 8 to 
download the most current interviewer appraisal sheet. 
     f.  The CO of either SEAL Team 17 or 18 is a required interview 
appraisal board member for both the 715X and 717X designators. 
     g.  All applicants applying to the 715X designator must hold NEC 
O26A or O23A.  All applicants applying to the 717X designator must 
hold NEC O52A. 
 
5.  Applicants currently serving on mobilization may have their application 
endorsed by their field commander.  All applications endorsed by field 
commanders must have concurrence of their parent command.  Follow the 
instructions in paragraph 8 to download a sample addendum letter. 
 
6.  Applicants must maintain eligibility throughout the selection and 
commissioning process.  Applicants that are deemed ineligible after the 
submission of applications must be declared ineligible by their current CO, 
field commander (if on a mobilization) or parent command CO.  Follow the 
instructions in paragraph 8 to download a sample letter of abeyance or 
removal of recommendation memo.
