Billet Based Distribution

Navy Personnel Command > Enlisted > Billet Based Distribution
All Commands are REQUIRED to submit CMS-ID/BBD access requests.  Designated command representatives MUST have an approved request on file at NPC for CMS-ID/BBD access.   Refer to the BBD ACCESS INSTRUCTIONS link on the right side of this web page for further guidance.
Billet Based Distribution 
Billet Based Distribution (BBD) is an application within the Career Management System - Interactive Detailing (CMS-ID) system.  The BBD initiative focuses on enabling the Navy to better manage force structure and readiness by more accurately matching Sailors and their unique skill sets to individual billets.
Additionally, BBD has upgraded the software programs used in enlisted distribution to provide accurate and timely manning information in a web-based environment to fleet personnel managers.  BBD enables Sailors to be assigned to specific Navy billets in order to meet the Global Force Management Data Initiative (GFM DI) and Defense Readiness Reporting System - Navy (DRRS-N) requirements for Active Component (AC) enlisted and Full Time Support (FTS) personnel and billets.
BBD provides near real-time information to allow resource managers, distribution stakeholders, and leadership to effectively manage the alignment of enlisted personnel to positions and improve personnel distribution efficiency.
Billet Based Training
Web-based Activity Manning Manager (AMM) training on BBD via DCS is available upon request.  Commands can contact their Placement Coordinator to arrange for training session times that accommodate their schedule and normal working hours especially for commands assigned oversea.  In addition, face-to-face BBD training by PERS-40 subject matter experts will be available during scheduled Fleet Engagement Trips.  If these options do not fulfill your command’s BBD training needs, in-person training will also be held at NPC.  For individuals seeking additional training, a self-help capability resides in CMS-ID, and the BBD User Guide is accessible via the hyperlink to the right.
Some Key Capabilities
BBD has many benefits for personnel distribution.  Most notably, it aligns every distributable enlisted Sailor to a Navy position and provides an accurate demand signal needed to maximize Rating and Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) "Fit" across the fleet.  BBD also optimizes the Sailor assignment process and ensures efficient utilization of Permanent Change of Station (PCS) and Temporary Duty under Instruction (TDI) resources.  For future planning purposes, it also provides the capability to have a more accurate Integrated Production Plan (IPP).
Because BBD provides near real-time manning data for end users, it replaces the Enlisted Data Verification Report (EDVR).  BUPERSINST 1080.54 Enlisted Distribution and Verification Process (EDVP) replaced the EDVR manual.  This new process spells out the tasks required to ensure an accurate demand signal is provided to NPC for distribution action.
