The May Promotion message has been released, NAVADMIN 101/18.
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 2018 changed the due date for letters to officer promotion boards. Correspondence must arrive not later than 10 calendar days before the convening date of the board. During your review of MILPERSMAN 1420-010, Communication with Officer Promotion Selection Boards, be mindful that this change has yet to be incorporated. However, the change has been mandated by law and officially disseminated through applicable Notices of Convening. Most current information regarding communication with the selection board can be found in NAVADMIN 297/17.
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.
Encrypted email is the preferred method of submission. Please email packages to CSCSELBOARD@navy.mil. To ensure more efficient processing and for internal tracking purposes, a recommended subject line of your email is "FOUO-Privacy Sensitive 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 the 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 send from a .mil e-mail address, you should digitally sign your e-mail.
