  8. Current Issues Snapshot • PCS challenges – CR driven shorter lead times, less stability for planning • Crisis response support – flexibility is key, evolving daily • Japan stop movement & dependents • Bahrain dependents • SER Board for O-5 and O-6 • Promotion outlook for FY12 and beyond • Single-year sustainable

  9. Selective Early Retirement Board • NAVADMIN 006/11 DTG 122143ZJAN11 • SER Board will convene in JUL 11 • Select 100 URL O6s and 100 URL O5s for early retirement • Numbers may be adjusted based on number of voluntary retirement requests received prior to the board • Eligible Officers • All AC URL O6s with at least 4 years TIG as of 01 JUL 11, whose name is not on a promotion list • All AC URL O5s who are 2x FOSs to O6, whose name is not on a promotion list • Exempt • Officers with statutory retirements in FY11 or FY12, who are on a promotion list, or have an approved voluntary retirement • Officers considered by the SER Board are exempt for further consideration for a period of 5 years • Officers selected will be individually notified OOA 01 SEP 11 • Must retire NLT the 1st day of the 7th month following SECNAV approval of the board results • PCS Impacts • Eligible Officers with PRDs between 1107 and 1112 will not be placed on new PCS orders until the results of the SER Board are released

  10. Fleet-up Turnover Policy • Previously, no policy specified the conduct of Fleet-up turnover • Each Command determined the execution of turnover and CoC to best fit the ship’s schedule • Approved turnover schedule • 1st week – XO turnover • 2nd and 3rd weeks – No-cost TAD / Leave period • 4th week – CO turnover • Commands coordinate no-cost TAD / Leave period • No-cost TAD at ISIC or TYCOM • Ships on deployment are excluded • ALNAVSURFOR msg DTG 301902ZDEC10 Policy development began with feedback from the Fleet

  11. 3rd Look Fleet-up Career Path Objectives • Create command opportunity for every XO • Increase talent in the XO chair • Ensure every CO has an XO tour 3rd Look Process Implementation • Occurs 2 years after 2nd look • XO screened officers eligible • Board outcomes • Screen CO Afloat • Screen CO-SM • No additional screening Commander Command Board Process: 3rd Look Career Path • Previous • 1st look • - Screen CO Afloat • 2nd look • - Screen CO Afloat • - Screen CO-SM • - Screen XO Afloat • - Screen XO-SM • Current • 1st look • - Screen CO Afloat • 2nd look • - Screen CO Afloat • - Screen XO Afloat • - Screen XO-SM • 3rd look (2 years later) • - Screen CO Afloat • - Screen CO-SM 3rd Look Fleet Up Career Path now provides Command opportunity for every XO

  17. Surface Warrior Snapshot O-1 O-2 O-3 O-4 O-5 O-6 DoD Flow Point Guidelines Control grade shortages have decreased since the time of the largest deficit Shortage decrease by rank: CAPT 53.2%; CDR 59.6%; LCDR 50.2%

  18. Year Group Retention MSR Waiver effect 275 DH retention critical for YG03-07

  19. Retention Comparison (SWOCP = DH) MSR Waiver Dynamics Small YGs continue to present a retention challenge Required retention increased from 28.6% (YG00) to 43.1% (YG04)

  20. Career Intermission Pilot Program • Up to 20 Officers per year of pilot • May apply for up to a 3 year intermission • Obligated service of 2 mos. for every month of intermission • Transition from active duty to IRR • Maintain TRICARE coverage • Paid monthly stipend = 1/15 base pay • Receive CONUS PCS move • Officers receiving a CSRB are not eligible • Officers under a CSRB contract who have not yet received a payment ARE eligible • 3 prime windows for SWOs • Post-Divo, prior to receiving first JO CSRB payment • Post-DH, prior to receiving first LCDR CSRB payment • Following completion of LCDR CSRB payments and while not in a Senior CSRB billet An opportunity to pause your Navy career and focus on other life goals

  21. GWOT Support Assignment GWOT Support Assignments: Formal, consolidated process involving PCS Orders, career timing and detailer interaction Individual Augmentations: USFF short-notice fill requirements, non-detailable events IA/GSA: 2002 – present 10.1% of the SWO inventory has served on an IA/GSA Current OCO Support is 1.9% of the SWO inventory

  22. GSA Guarantees • Officer cannot be selected for another GSA or IA during entire follow-on shore tour • Guaranteed geographic location in fleet concentration area for post-GSA shore tour • e.g. San Diego, Norfolk, Newport, Washington, D.C. • Provided valid billets available • “Executive Detailing” • One-on-one shore tour assignment discussion with your Detailer • Officers do not sent back into group slate process to compete against peers • Given priority for available shore billets • GSA credit/consideration on future slates

  23. OCO demand signal trending down Reductions in Iraq and GTMO missions GSA process: Provides visibility of manpower costs Reduces direct tax on Fleet Supports Career management Overseas Contingency Operations Current OCO Support is 1.9% of the SWO inventory

  24. OCO demand signal trending down Reductions in Iraq and GTMO missions GSA process: Provides visibility of manpower costs Reduces direct tax on Fleet Supports Career management Overseas Contingency Operations IA/GSA: 2002 – present 9.8% of the SWO inventory has served on an IA/GSA Current OCO Support is 1.7% of the SWO inventory

  26. Your Service Record Qualifications Detailers can update quals/AQDs OOD (LB2) SWO (LA9) EOOW (LC1/2/3) TAO (LF6/7) ECO (BS1/BS2) ASWE (BA1/BA2) Picture Mail NAVPERS form 1070/884 to: Navy Personnel Command PERS-312C 5720 Integrity Dr Millington, TN 38055-3120 Fitreps 1 of 1 - email detailer for POC Competitive - must be submitted by command Awards Must be updated by Navy Awards Office (DC) Web Enabled Record Review (WERR) Know how to get your OSR/PSR and review regularly!

  27. FITREPS 101 • FITREPS: • Know the reference! • Know what to ask! • What is: • an “air gap”? • a hard break out? • a soft break out? • traffic? • Boss’s RSCA? • How do you get that EP? • Block 41 must tell a clear story – white space OK! 4-STAR EA

  28. Performance Summary Report A B C D E Bad: Ind Avg below RSCA; 1 of 1 MP (this is an air gap – clear signal) A R/S IND What’s the Story to the briefer Greater than 90 day FITREP gap; pay attention to dates B SUM CUM Ok: New DH; in traffic; Ind below RSCA not an issue C Ok: 1st FITREP as O-4; stuck behind XO? – Block 41 must indicate D Blocks 40-43 Bad: Ind Avg below RSCA on a 1 of 1 EP; Is the CO sending a message? – What story does block 40 and 41 tell? E

  29. FITREP Considerations • For statutory boards - Meeting Milestones On Time • Lead FITREP Bullets should read: • For XO/CO Fleet Up CO-Afloat Screened Officers: Screened Commander Command Afloat • For XO/CO Fleet Up CO-SM Screened Officers: Screened Commander Command • For XO-Afloat Screened Officers: Screened for Executive Officer Afloat • For XO-SM Screened Officers: Screened for Executive Officer • For XO/CO SCP Screened Officers: Screened for Executive Officer or Commanding Officer • Trait Averages vs RSCA and Summary Average • Detaching 1 of 1 EP reports – Individual Average Above RSCA Expected! • Block 40 – Career Milestone Recommendations • Department Head Afloat, Command Afloat, Maj Command Afloat • Specialty Career Path, Special Mission or XO does send a strong signal • Block 41 – Comments on Performance • Tell the board briefer what’s going on (e.g. ranked behind XO, stuck behind senior DHs) • Soft breakout language critical – even if block 42/43 shows hard breakout (e.g. 1 of 5 DHs) • Block 42/43 – Promotion Recommendations • NAVADMIN 276/98 Removes O3 “MP” Limits • Movement Left Always Viewed Negatively unless newly promoted • O-1 and O-2 URL receive “P” recommendations • LDO O-1 and O-2 are expected to receive “EP” and “MP” recommendations • Hard Breakouts/Movement to the Right Document Success At-Sea to Support Promotion
