Active Duty Officer Promotions

Navy Personnel Command > Boards > Active Duty Officer


The December Promotion message has been released, NAVADMIN 276/17.           

Per NAVADMIN 186/16, officer photographs will no longer be displayed during selection boards. 

PERS-801 is the sponsor for all statutory officer promotion selection boards for ranks of O6 and below.  PERS 803 sponsors two administrative boards: the Active Duty LDO/CWO Procurement Board and the Active Duty Redesignation Board.

You will need to contact the appropriate sponsor (usually your detailer) for boards such as Command Screen, CO/XO, and Department Head.

The NDAA for 2006 changed the due date for letters to officer promotion boards. Please view  Correspondence to a Promotion Board for more information. 

Correspondence for ALL boards conducted at NPC in Millington is to be sent to the Customer Service Center. The address is provided within the annual notice of convening promotion selection boards.  Please use ONLY that address for any letter to a PROMOTION Board.  Do NOT send your letter to your detailer or any other PERS code. If you do, you risk your correspondence getting lost or being received too late for the board. Also, you MUST include your FULL SSN on your correspondence.  

REGULAR MAIL is the preferred method to ensure resolution quality of the documents being submitted.  If you must email a board package (i.e., deployed, stationed OCONUS), you can send it to the email address.  To ensure more efficient processing and for internal tracking purposes, a recommended subject line of your email is "FOUO: Board Package: Active-Duty [Rank][Line/Staff] Board, FY-YYXXX" (where YY represents the last two digits of the fiscal year of the selection board and XXX represents the actual 3-digit board number and you insert the appropriate parenthetical information).  FY-19 Board Schedule. You MUST encrypt your email due to PII policy.

If you sent a letter to a board, you may check on its status by logging in to this web site:  Check on your letter to the board 

Many questions about boards can be answered on our Helpful Information or Board Preparation links below. There is also some valuable information on the General Board Information pages.

For other questions concerning Active Duty Officer Promotion Boards, please call the NPC Customer Service Center (866) 827-5672 or Email: 

NOTE:  Board membership will no longer be published until after a board has adjourned.
