Candidates should check their evaluation continuity via BOL. Any evaluation gaps should be resolved by either submitting the missing evaluations in an LTB or a statement in lieu of missing report.
Communication to the board must originate from the individual candidate and must be under a signed LTB.
(1) The LTB may address any information that the candidate considers important. Candidates should not include items in their LTB that are already included in their OMPF or PSR unless the OMPF version is unreadable or the PSR is incorrect. Submission of an LTB to only state that the candidates OMPF and PSR have been verified and is correct is not desired.
(2) The LTB must either be digitally signed using the candidates military identity certificate or have a hand-written signature. Unsigned LTBs will not be presented to board members.
(3) Third party correspondence is any communication to the board which is not accompanied by the candidates signed LTB and will not be permitted. Commands are not authorized to submit a message to NPC requesting information be presented to the board.
Information received that is not under a signed LTB or not received by NPC CSC by the deadline will not be presented to the board. To verify receipt of your LTB, go tohttps://npccontactcenter.ahf.nmci.navy.mil/OA_HTML/npc.html
or call the NPC CSC. Although late or unsigned LTBs may be accepted by the NPC CSC, they will not be presented to the board and no feedback will be provided to the candidate.
All LTBs and each enclosure must contain the candidates full name and full social security number. Candidates verify that the correct board number is on their signed cover letter.
The preferred method to submit an LTB is by encrypted e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
. E-mailed LTBs must be encrypted to protect personally identifiable information. Trouble with file encryption or certificate issues does not justify a late LTB. For efficient processing, the subject line of email should be "FOUO: Board Package; Board # xxx" (xxx represents the actual board number).
If unable to e-mail, candidates may use regular mail to the addresses below. Mailed LTBs should be on plain white paper and paper clipped (no staples, binders, folders or tabs).
Certified or registered mail is not advised due to delays in handling.
Candidates are authorized to submit more than one LTB, vice waiting until the deadline to submit one all-inclusive LTB. Although multiple LTBs are authorized, candidates should not duplicate previously sent information. Early submission of LTB is highly recommended.
The same LTB deadline applies to candidates who gain eligibility after the LTB deadline and before the convening date. If a candidate is working to fix an eligibility issue and expects to be selection board eligible prior to the board convening date, they may submit a LTB but it still must be received prior to the deadline.
