3. ITEMS TO CONSIDER

    The decommissioning and homeport change processes are new and unfamiliar for most Sailors in the Fleet. Below we’ve listed helpful information that will get your command well on its way in preparing to make a decommissioning or homeport change a successful transition both on the command level as well as the individual Sailor.

    Please review MILPERS Article 1306-1100 PERSONNEL REASSIGNMENT/SEPARATION PROCEDURES INCIDENT TO ACTIVITY DEACTIVATION as that is the first reference for a decommissioning or disestablishment that will be used for clarification. MILPERS Article 1306-1800 PROCEDURES FOR MEMBERS ASSIGNED TO ACTIVITIES SCHEDULED FOR CHANGE OF HOMEPORT OR PERMANENT DUTY STATION is the initial guidance for the home port change process.

For Decommissionings

- Please ensure all PTS applications are completed. For all applications, once you receive the approved Organizational Change Request (OCR), you need to put all PTS applications in as Special Circumstances.  You will need to do this every month. Get them in as soon as possible. Sailors without PTS approval will be detailed accordingly.
- Spouse Collocations need to ensure members have current 1306 on file with their rating detailer.
- EFM paperwork needs to be up to date.
- Security clearances need to be up to date.
- Undesignated Sailors need to have packages submitted for "A" school. Fleet Ride is a significant issue for decommissionings, as there is no provision for a waiver of the 12 month requirement.
- Fleet Reserve paperwork for applicable Sailors needs to be submitted appropriately.
- Sailors who are within their detailing window need to understand they cannot wait for a decommissioning conference, and are required to apply via CMS. If they wait too long and become Needs of the Navy, that is exactly what they will be. The decommissioning process does not change that.
- High year tenure waivers are almost never approved. That is something each chain of command will need to look at closely.
- Sea/Shore rotation and the requirements for each rating and paygrade need to be looked at. Only Sailors with 6 months or less of sea time remaining can roll to shore.
- The most important factor in the entire process is an informed crew. It is very important for the chain of command to ensure that Sailors have been counseled or career development boards to ensure that the Sailors are not making career decisions at the last minute. A proactive chain of command working with the Sailors on board briefing them on this process is the most important part of this being a successful transition in each Sailor's career.

For Homeport Changes

     The homeport change process is a rather straight forward one. Generally, the entire crew assigned to the command moving will make the move with the command to the new homeport. The few Sailors that might not move are Sailors currently enrolled in the exceptional family member program in category 4 or 5, Sailors with current spouse collocation orders to the area of the homeport and Sailors the chain of command allow to transfer early.  For additional information on Homeport Changes and Hull Swaps; to include a checklist and a Point of contacts listing.  Please click the (CAC Enabled) link below.

HOMEPORT CHANGE INFORMATION FOR PLANNING

    Specific question about either process can be forwarded to FCCS Jesse Hyde (901)874-3580; ATC Blake Price 901-874-3846; AE1 Richard Ramsey 901-874-3857, and via Email MILL_NPC_DECOM_HPC@navy.mil. The Pers 409 team is looking forward to working with your command during this evolution. Each process is a unique one and we strive for a smooth transition.
