10.  Only eligible officers may communicate with a continuation selection 
board via the letter to the board (LTB) process.  NAVADMIN
220/19 announced the introduction of a new application known as Electronic 
Submission of Selection Board Documents (ESSBD), accessible through My Navy 
Portal (MNP).  ESSBD improves the speed, transparency and confidence of 
receipt over current LTB submission methods, such as hard copy and e-mail 
submitted letters and related attachments.
    a.  ESSBD is available for all promotion, advancement and selection 
boards.
    b.  ESSBD provides board candidates with the capability to electronically 
submit LTBs in a standard, consistent format, with or without attachments and 
will allow the candidate to see (for content and clarity) exactly what will 
be delivered and presented to the board.
    c.  To utilize ESSBD, candidates must access document services through 
MNP at https://my.navy.mil/quick-links.html.
On-screen instructions will direct the submitter thereafter.
    d.  Submission and subsequent receipt acknowledgement for LTBs submitted 
via ESSBD or other means does not constitute confirmation of eligibility for 
the boards to which LTBs are submitted.  If required, a full visual user 
guide is available through MNP at https://my.navy.mil/quick-links.html.
    e.  LTBs must be received by Navy Personnel Command no later than 2359 
(central standard time) (CST) 10 days prior to the convening date of the 
respective board, as noted below.  Submitters are cautioned to not wait until 
the deadline date to submit LTBs via ESSBD or other available avenues.

    f.  If unable to use ESSBD, the CSCSELBOARD@navy.mil mailbox account is 
capable of receiving encrypted correspondence in accordance with Department 
of Defense policy.  If sending a board package from a non-NMCI network 
(bumed.mil, eu.navy.mil, etc.), please review procedures listed in NAVADMIN 
220/19.
    g.  The written communication may call attention to the board, any matter 
concerning the record of the officer that the officer considers important.  
Written communication may include, as enclosures, correspondence from any 
individual concerning the eligible officer.  Correspondence not originated by 
the eligible officer, including endorsement to the letter of the eligible 
officer and letters written on behalf of that officer, must contain a written 
acknowledgement by the eligible officer that he or she desires such 
correspondence be presented to the board.
Correspondence without such an acknowledgement is considered third party 
correspondence and will be rejected without being presented to the board.  
Classified correspondence will not be accepted.

11.  All officers are reminded of their responsibility to ensure the 
completeness and accuracy of their official records prior to the convening 
date of the board.

12.  Questions regarding LTB submission and continuation should be directed 
to MyNavy Career Center (MNCC) by calling 1-833-330-MNCC
(1-833-330-6622/DSN:  882-6622) or e-mailing ASKMNCC@navy.mil.

13.  Additional information concerning continuation is also available via MNP 
at https://www.mnp.navy.mil/group/mnpmain
promotion/p-officer-promotion-resources-and-links, then click on the Websites 
side (vice Systems side) of the blue header.  Once on the Websites side, you 
will see the NPC Promotion Boards link.  Click on the NPC Promotion Boards 
link, then click on the Officer Continuation/SERB link on the left hand side.

14.  This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or 30 September 
2025, whichever occurs first.
