Administrative Separation 
 

Reserve Enlisted Administrative Separations

PURPOSE: promote the readiness of the Navy by providing an orderly means to:

- Evaluate the suitability of persons to serve in the Armed Forces based on their ability to meet required performance, conduct, and disciplinary standards;

 - Maintain standards of performance, conduct, and discipline through characterization of service in a system that emphasizes the importance of honorable service;

- Achieve authorized force levels and grade distributions;

- Provide an orderly means of discharge for enlisted personnel.

Refer to Military Personnel Manual (MPM) 1910-010 through 1910-900 and DODI 1332.14 for all other ADSEP’s

COMMON ERRORS FOUND IN ADSEP PACKAGES WHICH DELAY FINAL DISPOSITION:

  • Supporting documentation missing from package.
  • NRA submits ADSEP package to PERS 913 less than 30 days from the member’s receipt of ADSEP notification (MPM 1910-408).
  • Letter of Transmittal being signed "By direction“, or not in the correct format. (MPM 1910-600).
  • Other Than Honorable (OTH) separations conducted at NRA level without proper authority (BUPERS 1001.39F, Chapter 8).
  • NRA conducting local ADSEP on members with MSO remaining (BUPERS 1001.39F, Chapter 8).
  • MPM 1910-156 used for Unsatisfactory Drill Participation, use MPM 1910-158
  • MPM 1910-124 used for personnel that fail to update the Family Care Plan Certificate, use MPM 1910-158 due to failing to respond to official correspondence. MPM 1910-124 should be used when a member has stated that they cannot execute the Family Care Plan Certificate.
  • Incorrect NAVPERS 1910 submitted (i.e. 1910/32 used when characterization of OTH is or should be pursued).
  • Incorrect or missing page 13 for Pattern of Misconduct ADSEPs (Must use the page 13 shown in  MPM 1910-204).
  • Missing Urinalysis Register on cases involving Drug Use.
  • Missing Administrative Board Record of Proceedings (ROP) and findings/recommendations sheet when an admin board was held (MPM 1910-516).
  • Records not properly screened for deployment to Hazardous Duty Pay/Imminent Danger Pay zone prior to processing for ADSEP (MPM 1910-702)                                                              
  • Sworn affidavit is not included with ADSEP package when a member does not sign NAVPERS 1910/31 or 1910/32.  A PS form 3800 and/or 3811 included with the package does not mitigate the requirement for a prepared sworn affidavit. (MPM 1910-408 & MPM 1910-412)

Processing time for ADSEPs:
30 days from the date sent to PERS-913
