Career Management System (CMS)
Interactive Detailing (ID)

CMS-ID is designed and used by Sailors, Command Career Counselors and Command Personnel. The Web-based system allows Sailors to view available jobs and make their own applications or through their Command Career Counselor. Sailors can view CMS-ID through a secure website located at HTTPS://WWW.CMSID.NAVY.MIL


With the implementation of BBD, new access procedures have been established for all existing CMS-ID roles (AC/FTS/RC) and new roles established for BBD. All users are required to submit a SAAR and a NAVPERS 1330/3. Instructions can be found here.

Personnel requesting Type Commander (TYCOM) access provide their TGC range in block 11. Refer to the links on the right to get your TGC codes.

Billet Based Distribution (BBD) is an application within the Career Management System - Interactive Detailing (CMS-ID) which began in February 2016. The BBD process 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.

BBD has many other 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 ensure 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).

BBD provides near real-time manning data for end users and it replaced the Enlisted Distribution Verification Report (EDVR) process. BUPERSINST 1080.54, Enlisted Distribution and Verification Process (EDVP) replaced the EDVR manual and it lists a number of tasks required to ensure an accurate demand signal is provided for distribution action.

Additionally, BBD provides fleet manning managers, resource managers, distribution stakeholders and leadership with accurate , real time data billet and personnel data; which allows them to better manage personnel assignments to meet fleet operational readiness. BBD also aligns Sailors to specific billet requirements in order to meet the Global Force Management Data Initiative (GFMDI) and Defense Readiness Reporting System - Navy (DRRS-N) requirements for Active Component (AC) enlisted and Full Time Support (FTS) personnel.

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 overseas. In addition, face-to-face BBD training by Pers-40 subject matter experts is available during schedules Fleet Engagement Trips. If these options do not fulfill your command's BBD training needs, in-person training is also available 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.
